LC Kids presents

Campfire

Somewhere in the city, there is a tent. Inside this tent, there is an entire forest. And inside every tree trunk, and under every rock, there is a story. Trusty Sidekick invites its audience to gather around the campfire, gaze through binoculars, look for shooting stars, and entertain porcupines with a good joke. This intimate theater experience uses innovative puppetry and immersive staging to take audiences on a sensory trip to the great outdoors. Based in New York City, Trusty Sidekick Theater Company creates bold, original productions for young people and their families. Rooted firmly in the belief that kids deserve theater that ignites their imaginations and makes them think about the world in a new way, the company creates work that is multidisciplinary, and its ensemble of collaborators includes artists trained in physical theater, puppetry, music, dance, animation, and video projection.

Recommended for ages 2–5

LC Kids Storytime at the Atrium

You Don’t Want a Unicorn by Ame Dyckman

When a little boy throws a coin in a well asking for a pet unicorn, he has no idea what kind of trouble he's in for. Unbeknownst to him, unicorns make the absolutely worst pets: they shed, they poke holes in your ceiling, they make a big mess. With a knowing wink from Ame Dyckman, creator of Wolfie the Bunny, and cheerful illustrations from Rory the Dinosaur creator and Tumblr star Liz Climo, this catalog of all of the ways a pet unicorn can ruin your life is sure to have readers in stitches.

Recommended for ages 2–5

LC Kids Storytime at the Atrium is presented in collaboration with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

Lincoln Center has become a leading force in using new media and technology to reach and inspire a wider and global audience. Reaching audiences where they are – physically and digitally – has become a cornerstone of making the performing arts more accessible to New Yorkers and beyond. The re-imagination of David Geffen Hall will play an important part in these efforts.
