Event Information

It's National Poetry Month, and the award-winning Crabgrass Puppet Theatre weaves favorite children's poems into a seamless tapestry of art and entertainment for all ages. Imagine a symphony composed entirely by the swimming of "The Goldfish"; thrill to the exploits of aerodynamic sausages in "Fearless Flying Hotdogs"; and dance with the "Funky Snowman"! The Celebrate! series, appropriate for family audiences and children ages 5 and up, highlights America's rich cultural diversity through the arts. All performances are free and begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Stephen E. Smith Center at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, Columbia Point, Boston. In order to optimize your comfort and enjoyment, reservations are now required for all visitors to this free program. Small children are seated on a carpeted floor with their caretakers. To make a reservation, call 617-514-1644 All school groups (including nursery schools, day care centers and scouting groups) are welcome, but it is essential for the group leader to call one week in advance and speak to a Kennedy Library staff member to ensure that there will be adequate seating. Groups may call 617-514-1644, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Space is available on a first come, first serve basis. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
