Playscape Performs comes to a close September 10th and 11th with Hobey Ford’s celebrated show “ANIMALIA” and a special presentation by Good Hearted Entertainment. Together with his team of adorable “Foamies,” Hobey Ford makes animals of all sorts emerge in movement and music to form a full-on puppet ballet. Watch as the habits and habitats of the world’s mightiest beasts and tiniest bugs come into furry focus right before your eyes. “Sock Monkey Circus” by Good Hearted Entertainment is a full circus performed in miniature! This performance features the magical talents of the host “Funny Honey” and her clever monkeys, who are trained to juggle, dance, and swing on a flying trapeze!
Playscape Performs will continue all summer with dance, puppetry, music, and more.
Home to ShowBox, the first improv theater in a New York City playground, Playscape is New York’s destination for arts, exploration, and play. Join us this summer to celebrate the beauty of a biodiverse playground.
