Carole and Paula from TV’s The Magic Garden
Oct 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Suggested Ages: All
Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the WPIX hit The Magic Garden with the two and only Carole and Paula. This highly-acclaimed show won accolades and tons of fans during its 12 years on the air as the two combined their talents for performing and educating. They brought stories, songs, games, lessons and laughter to a wide audience and achieved ratings that equaled or surpassed those of Sesame Street and Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Like those shows, the program’s quirky style made it entertaining for adults as well as children. One of the most astonishing things about Carole and Paula’s live shows has been the number of adults who show up to reconnect with their memories of life lived in the garden, amidst the toadstools.
