Family fun – with or without the kids!
Two upcoming events at the Center for the Performing Arts give parents a chance to enjoy a fun multimedia event with their children, or an evening of laughs without them.
The Queen’s Cartoonists
Sunday, Oct. 16, at 5 p.m.
The Queen’s Cartoonists play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation, with performances synchronized to video projections of the films to create a concert of classical music and jazz that connects with audiences of all ages. Since its inception in 2015, the sextet has gone from playing in the New York subway system to selling out the Blue Note Jazz Club and opening for the New York Philharmonic. Expect the unexpected from repertoire that includes the Golden Age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern video pieces, comedy and elements of a musical circus.
My Name is NOT Mom
Friday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m.
My Name is NOT Mom is a hilarious journey through motherhood with internet sensations Tiffany Jenkins, Meredith Masony and Dena Blizzard. After helping millions of fans get through the pandemic, this comic trio share their take on mothering through the sleepless nights of the toddler years, middle school craziness and trying not to physically attack a high schooler. This special live event features stand-up, stories and videos from their online community and audience interaction to create an up close and personal experience that’s funnier than a pap smear. NOTE: Contains adult language.
