Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park (West 79th Street & Central Park West)
$12, $8/ages 11 & under
Get in the Halloween spirit with a marionette show at Central Park’s enchanting Swedish Cottage. Plucky siblings Hansel and Gretel explore the supernatural side of Central Park, meeting mermaids in Harlem Meer, pirates in the Central Park Lake, a friendly monster at a playground and a fabulous witch at a Halloween party in Belvedere Castle. The music is catchy, dancing is encouraged and a Michael Jackson impersonator puppet moonwalks. My kids were fascinated by the magic-like mechanics of the marionette and loved meeting a puppeteer and learning his tricks at the end of the show.
Also on Sunday & Tuesday 11 am & 1 pm.
