For more than 40 years Clifford has charmed and amazed children with his zany escapades and “big ideas” and he’s coming to The Center to emBARK on his latest adventure, live on stage!

Outside on the grounds, Scottish border collies display their skills at sheep- and duck-herding. Kids can try on reproduction 18th-century clothing for a great photo op and visitors are invited to enjoy a fashion show complete with critiques from Historic Hudson Valley’s own expert costume designer. Master storytellers Jonathan Kruk (Saturday, April 16) and April Armstrong (Sunday, April 17) entertain with some lively tales. In the Manor House, discover the exhibit Wearable Wealth: The Value of Cloth and Clothing in the 18th Century.

Saturday at 12:15pm and Sunday at 12:10pm: Horse Feathers The Marx Brothers wreak havoc on higher education! When Professor Quincy Adams Wagstaff (Groucho) is hired as the next president of the fictitious Huxley College, his enthusiasm for education is not passed down to his son Frank (Zeppo), who convinces Wagstaff to recruit two professional football players that hang out in a speakeasy in order to beat rival school, Darwin. As is the case with most Marx Brothers’ adventures, a series of misunderstandings leads Wagstaff to mistakenly hire two misfits, Baravelli (Chico) and Pinky (Harpo), who happen to work in the speakeasy. After finding out that Darwin beat him to the “real” players, Wagstaff enlists Baravelli and Pinky to kidnap them, which brings everything crashing together in the famous anarchic gridiron finale. $13 non-members. ~ Pleasantville

{Reoccurs} Saturday at 6:15pm and Sunday at 11:45am and 5:15pm: Man Of La Mancha Come “Dream the Impossible Dream” with this five-time Tony award-winning musical! Inspired by one of the greatest novels of all time, Man of La Mancha features Miguel de Cervantes who channels the power of storytelling to enact his magical tale of the greatest knight of all. Don Quixote – the slayer of dragons, windmills and defender of ladies in distress. On a quest to restore chivalry to the world and to claim his lady love, Don Quixote and his trusty sidekick Sancho, remind us all to never give up – that miracles happen – and we can reach the stars. Runs until May 1st. ~ Elmsf♥rd
