Socially-distanced Shows in Central Park
Ages 0-8; FREE, but donations gladly
Esther and her puppets have been doing socially-distanced shows on the Great Hill since September, 2020. The shows usually take place on Saturday mornings at 11am (rain date is always the next Sunday), as long as the weather cooperates, and the temperature doesn't dip below 40 degrees. Please check the calendar to see when the next show is! Location: Enter the park at 108th and Central Park West, and follow the upward path, until you reach the Great Hill. You’ll see a circular path around a big, grassy area. Veer LEFT on the path, and look for me waving at you, near a big tree! Bring a small blanket to sit on, an instrument to SHAKE, and also your favorite SCARF, as we always end the show with a "Disco Scarf Dance"! Also: I often incorporate a Spanish song or two! While COVID is an on-going concern, children over the age of 2 are strongly encouraged to wear a MASK, and I even wear one, while singing, whistling, laughing, etc. It's easy! The shows are usually live streamed on Instagram, if you prefer to watch from home. Find me on IG @estocrow. The best ages for the show are 0-8, but anyone is welcome! Please email Esther to get on her mailing list to receive regular updates.
$250 for 1/2 Hour, $300 for
Hire Esther for your kid's birthday party! Esther puts the FUN in FUNKY with her handmade puppets (by Jeff Lewonczyk) and groovy tunes! She'll get all those little ones singing, dancing, and noise-making, with a variety of percussive instruments...all you provide is the space (and not too many distractions!)
