Join us for Story Time featuring Pinocchio and The Three Coins by Repertorio Español! Eduardo Navas and his Scaramouches Puppet Theatre will tell Pinocchio’s original adventure, when he decides to follow his new friends, a puppeteer and later Fox to have great fun and to become rich instead of getting an education. Pinocchio will be tricked by Fox into throwing three gold coins into the mountain of miracles. With the aid of his real friends in the audience, Pinocchio will realize that he should go to school so he can be smart and not be fooled again.
Please join us before and after this unforgettable show for more stories and art-making for the entire family! On the same day, the Museum is also celebrating El Dia del Niño, a “Day of the Child” featuring engaging activities relating to traditional Mexican toys and games
About Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill
Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill is a series of curated programs that aim to provide children with a meaningful, interactive and fun art experience. Grounded in our curatorial mission to share stories through theater, music, dance and visual art, as well as oral and literary forms, Story Time presents tales, fables, histories, and myths that genuinely reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural milieu of our surroundings. Story Time also leverages the Museum’s own art exhibitions to foster richer engagement with, and a deeper understanding of, public art already on view. Held every second Saturday of each month, each two-hour presentation includes a participatory art activity facilitated by teaching artists from the community, so children not only experience others’ stories, but also reflect on what they see and hear, and create and share their own stories.
