1:00 PM Cook With Your Kid: Chinese Take-Out Ditch your local Chinese take-out menu and cook up some kid-favorite Chinese dishes that will satisfy both parents and hungry kid chefs alike!

We begin class by dicing and mixing up the classic ingredients for a perfect sharable dish: fried rice. Every rice dish needs a saucy entree, and sweet & sour chicken is a natural fit for this menu. You and your kid chef will mix together the ingredients for an authentic sweet and sour sauce which we will use to coat juicy chunks of pre-cooked chicken.

You canˇt beat food thatˇs sweet: we finish class with moist vanilla cupcakes, hand decorated and topped with a special fortune for each kid chef!

This class is designed for kids ages 5-9 years old + an adult. One ticket will cover you + your child.

*This class may accommodate Gluten-Free, Vegetarian and Dairy-Free dietary restrictions.

8:00 PM Stage: Romeo and Juliet After his smash-hit Othello and record-breaking Hamlet, Barry Edelstein returns to the Shakespeare Festival to take on the greatest love story of all time. Verona's Montague and Capulet families have been feuding for ages, and whenever they meet, violence breaks out. But when Romeo glimpses Juliet across a crowded dance floor, something different happens. Can star-crossed love survive in a world of rivalry and rage? With a plot featuring a masqued ball, sleeping potions, and
all-out brawling in the street, wrapped in a text full of soaring poetry, it's no wonder Romeo and Juliet has inspired countless adaptations, from ballets to movies to musicals like West Side Story. Young love has never been as dangerous or delightful as it is in Shakespeare's romantic masterpiece, brought to vivid life on our outdoor stage under the stars.

Admission/Cost: $30 - $90

The audience is transported from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters. A young man has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto and a woman dreams of marrying rich, which nabs her the man of her dreams.
