Kids Ahoy transports kids to a fantastic land beneath the sea, embracing them in wall-to-wall murals swimming with images of pirates, mermaids, and ocean life. Amid the watery decor, safe and age-appropriate activities beckon little ones to roam, bounce, and butterfly stroke through the air. Choruses of laughter echo in crawling tubes, moon bounces, and plastic cars. Basketball hoops await free throws, and numerous wavy slides shoot downward from plastic play sets. The staff also creates a safe, soft environment for babies in the Baby Corner and designates swings specifically for toddlers.
Kids Ahoy's imaginative setting is available for both open play and private festivities. During party packages, characters such as pirates delight guests with games while assistants paint faces in aquatic-theme designs inspired by fish fashion magazines.

For nine days in July, the annual theater festival stages an eclectic collection of international plays, premieres, and readings. This season’s lineup represents the finest union of worldly performances since Les Misérables: As Performed by Members of the U.N. The lineup includes the U.S. premiere of Ireland’s Gare St. Lazare Players’ production of The End and Israel’s Orto-Da Theatre Group’s production of Stones, a movement piece in which the troupe’s mime artists depict a living statue that commemorates Jewish warriors of the Warsaw Ghetto. Full descriptions of the season can be found here; consult the season schedule for performance details. Please note that some performances are free throughout the festival's run.

A wedding is a treasure trove of memories: the first kiss between newlyweds, the toss of the bouquet, the moment when the groom jumps out of the wedding cake. Since 1981, Moonlight Video Productions' videographers have stood silently in the background of these events, video camera in hand, to capture each priceless moment. From weddings to bar mitzvahs, they shoot special events with professional quality—multiple cameras, wireless microphones, and the option to replace distant uncles with a wisecrackin' CGI uncle. Afterward, they create DVDs with custom menus and special effects. When not shooting video, the technicians can be found in the lab restoring photos and transferring old VHS tapes to DVD.
