Staten Island: The Other Cradle of Aviation by Edward D. Drury

History Center, Building H, Snug Harbor Campus, 1000 Richmond Terrace
Author/Aviator Edward D. Drury will present a visual history talk that will surprise you.
Staten Island was home to the first airplane factory in the USA. Eventually, four factories and over 20 landing sites were built, but they would not sell Charles Lindbergh a plane!
Bring your little ones to this free, interactive, 45-minute concert that’s designed for children ages three to six, and fun for the whole family!
Family music’s first soul band Shine and the Moonbeams captures the fun, sweetness, and simplicity of youth in a groovy R&B package. With compassionate verses on important subject matter such as standing up to bullies and celebrating individuality, kids and adults will identify with Shine’s insightful lyrics and soulful melodies.
The dangers of a workplace romance are explored to hysterical effect in this romantic comedy (from the creators ofDamn Yankees) Conditions at the Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory are anything but peaceful, as sparks fly between new superintendent Sid Sorokin and Babe Williams, leader of the union grievance committee. Their stormy relationship comes to a head when the workers strike for a 7 and a half cent pay increase, setting off not only a conflict between management and labor, but a battle of the sexes as well.
Bright and brassy, this unconventional, fast-paced Broadway favorite is every bit the embodiment of legendary director George Abbott at his very best. The energetic score by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross is brimming with songs and dances, which have become popular and musical theatre standards (among them "Hey There," "Steam Heat" and "Hernando's Hideaway") and features plenty of splashy, fun production numbers, including a comic "dream ballet." For solid, classic musical comedy, it's hard to beat THE PAJAMA GAME!

This hilarious, long running Off-Broadway show celebrates the contemporary conundrum, “the relationship.” Starring cast members from the Off-Broadway production, the show is being directed by Ryan McKinney, who supervised the National Tour. In its twelve year Off-Broadway run, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change played more than 5000 performances. The Newark Star Ledgercalled it “Seinfeld set to music,” and the New York Post called it “a battle of the heterosexes.” This show is perfect for groups or Date Night. Karyn Quackenbush (Imaginary Friends; Blood Brothers; Annie Get Your Gun; Love, Loss and What I Wore) a veteran of the Off Broadway run of ILYYPNC, is set to star.
