The Frog Prince and City That Drinks the Mountain Sky

Mikro took a drama and storytelling workshop at Croton Library, and afterwards watched a performance of The Frog Prince. During the performance, the workshop kids had two small parts-- pretending to be trees in the forest, and later, being courtiers who greet and bow to the king. Mikro's bow, suitably theatrical.

At the end, the kids got to check out the harp.

Our homeschool group saw the first of several shows we'll be attending at Tribeca Performing Arts Center. Arm of the Sea Theater presented "City That Drinks the Mountain Sky", a puppet show which details the natural history and history of the Catskill reservoir system which supplies New York City's water. The kids thought it was magical. Unfortunately, photography isn't permitted, so I have no images to share of the colorful and creative scenery and puppets...
