New American Voices Reading Series @ Queens Theatre

This free play reading series kicks off with a rollicking, irreverent comedy by playwright Lojo Simon. Relic tells the story of an out-of-work actor, read by Nick Fondulis, who discovers one of the world’s greatest relics in his grandmother’s attic. His find brings him fame and fortune, but he quickly realizes that is not all he wants. The new comedy explores the cult of celebrity, religion and idolatry.

Tickets are free, but call 718-760-0064 to reserve a seat.

Turnip the Beet @ Alley Pond Environmental Center | New York | United States

During this gardening club tweens can build agriculturalist, survivalist, and naturalist skills while working on environmental stewardship projects in the park. They will learn what plants need, and why they need them. During each session they will garden in the APEC greenhouse to the “beet” of musical genres from classical to pop, from hip-hop to bebop.

A Race against Time- Spring has sprung, now the race begins. Sprouts of every kind are pushing through the soil reaching upwards to find the sunshine. Come make some planter pets of your own to take home and study. If they need any grooming just give them a buzz cut, but don’t through away the clippings!
