Saturday, April 9th:

10am: Hike Around Teatown Lake Families from the Ossining School District are welcome to hike along with Ossining School Superintendent Ray Sanchez and a Teatown educator to experience a spring day around Teatown Lake. Free.

11am and 1:30pm: Henry and Mudge Moving from the city to a new house in the country can be tough. Just ask Henry, who can’t find a playmate in his new neighborhood! Luckily, he’s got Mudge, a great big, 182-pound canine buddy, with whom he can share all kinds of adventures! Henry discovers that having a pet is a big responsibility – they need to be fed, they need to be taken out for walks, and of course they need lots of love and playtime! And when the dog is as big as Mudge is, they also need good training. Henry teaches his new friend to sit, heel, and shake his hand, but rolling over is one trick Henry just can’t seem to teach Mudge, no matter how hard he tries. When Henry’s cousin Annie comes for a visit, Mudge is so charmed by her that he finally rolls over at her command! Henry thinks Mudge must love Annie more than him, because the dog only does the trick for her. Very upset, Henry runs away into the cold dark woods to find adventures on his own. Mudge follow’s the boy’s scent into the forest – he really does love Henry and doesn’t want to be without him. Will the two friends be reunited? Find out in this heartwarming Theatreworks USA musical, based on the best-selling series of books by Cynthia Rylant. Approximately one-hour in length, recommended for grades Pre-K – 3.


1 – 4pm: Spring Family Day Imagine being able to see everything from a bird’s eye view. What spaces would you explore? What would your neighborhood look like or your teacher’s backyard? Or a volcano? Join us for an afternoon of experimental map-making and a presentation about UAVs. Get a close-up look of remote-control unmanned aerial vehicles (aka drones) in a live-demo by Sam Zeloof and Liam Hanna of Flying Squirrel Multirotors! Sam and Liam will talk to participants about how they became interested in R/C flight, are inspired by the arts, and how as current high-school students, they founded their own company to research, design and produce aerial vehicles. This event is free with museum admission and open to the public.

8pm: State Street Ballet: Carmen A red dress. It hints of passion, jealousy, desire. That one red dress, clinging to a beautiful dancer, embodies all of the elements of Carmen, the classic tragic tale of the Gypsy and her obsessive lover. State Street Ballet’s full-length production is told through contemporary ballet, with both classical and modern influences, choreographed by William Soleau to the rich score by Georges Bizet. State Street, a vibrant and innovative dance company based in Santa Barbara, has become known for melding familiar story lines with exciting movement to give familiar tales a modern, passionate, and unique twist.
