NYC Parks & Recreation Department and Borough President Gale Brewer have teamed up with NYC Children’s Theater to bring an all-ages educational production to the green spaces of the city, including two Lower East Side parks.
The 60-minute musical is called My City Park! and stars Diana Fox and Sophia Holtz. In a nutshell, when main character, Milo, finds out his favorite city park is going to be torn down and replaced with a shopping mall, he seeks out the help of his two best friends, Odessa the Owl and Bucky the Squirrel. Based on the book by Brooke Boertzel and Melissa Gordon, children will learn how important it is to share community spaces, while singing songs that celebrate the city.
All performances are free, and you can catch a showing at one of the below neighborhood parks:
Sunday, June 7th, 1:00pm
Sara D. Roosevelt Park, E. Houston St. To Canal St. between Chrystie St. and Forsyth St.
Saturday, June 13, 1:00pm
Hamilton Fish Park, E. Houston St, Stanton St, Sheriff St., Pitt St.
