The Town of Oyster Bay’s Children’s Magical Music & More program will feature three excellent performances in March beginning with “Central Park Zoo: Butterfly Boogie,” a musical, interactive performance that counters the common perception of bugs being gross and introduces students to metamorphosis and the interdependence of plants and animals. Butterfly Boogie will be held at the Locust Valley Public Library, located at 170 Buckram Road, Locust Valley on Saturday, March 11 at 2:00 p.m. and is free to all Town residents, Councilwoman Rebecca M. Alesia announced.
“Throughout the year, the Town’s Children’s Magical Music & More program provides quality entertainment to families and children around the Town of Oyster Bay free of charge,” Councilwoman Alesia stated. “Butterfly Boogie is just one of the many Children’s Magical Music & More performances offered by the program this year. Seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis and each event is recommended for children four years of age and older.”
Councilwoman Alesia went on to say that the second Children’s Magical Music & More performance in March would be face painter Christopher Agostino’s “StoryFaces”. StoryFaces is an exciting and unusual storytelling show where volunteers are brought on stage and are face painted to illustrate stories as Christopher tells them, captivating the audience with folktales and his uniquely animated original stories. This performance will take place on Sunday, March 12, at 1:00 p.m. at the Massapequa Public Library located at 40 Harbor Lane, in Massapequa.
The third and final Children’s Magical Music & More performance scheduled for March will be a performance by talented juggler; Jester Jim. Audience members of all ages will be glued to every sound of Jester Jim’s performance. With a trunk full of props and a looping machine, Jester Jim takes the stage and starts his show with an amazing beatbox intro. Jester Jim is scheduled to perform on Saturday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m. at the Hicksville Public Library, located on 169 Jerusalem Ave, Hicksville.
