New York Scandia Symphony: “What Papa does is Always Right” at Anne Loftus Playground

Part of NoMAA’s Uptown Arts Stroll. “What Papa does is Always Right,” based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “Papa is Always Right.” Puppets and stuffed animals provide visual entertainment, illustrating the narration by SANDRA BILLINGSLEA – and there will be surprise troll activities at the end of the show.
Musicians of the Scandia Symphony will be performing live at both performances and our young audiences will be learning about the musical instruments.  Children will be actively engaged during the programs and will have the opportunity to participate in exercises and try out some simple musical instruments at the end of the programs.
Special thanks to Councilmember Ydanis Rodriguez for funding this children’s program.
