Sid the Science Kid, Live!
Sid’s got a question, as always, and with the help of three special friends and one terrific teacher, he may just find more answers than he expects. Alongside pals Gabriela, Gerald, and May, he sets out to understand the five senses, diving headfirst into a journey through taste, touch, smell, vision, and ghost-vision. Luckily, he and his teacher, Miss Susie, decide to bring the audience along for the ride. Filling the theater with sensory effects that engage the eyes, ears, nose, and more, their musical romp lights upon many discoveries, including that of a very special sixth sense.<p>
Since debuting on PBS Kids in 2008, Jim Henson’s Sid the Science Kid has captured the curious minds of children (and their parents) with a blend of comedy, music, and science-readiness curriculum. Directed by renowned puppeteer and actor John Tartaglia, a 12-season veteran of Sesame Street, the live show brings the animated spectacle off the screen and onto the stage thanks to the handiwork of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. <p>
Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts
Productions of all creative stripes grace the stages of the four venues that make up the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. The classical Memorial Auditorium serves as a sparkling centerpiece, a chandelier-bedecked hall that has seen the likes of Frank Sinatra, Itzhak Perlman, and Prince perform since its doors first opened in 1932. The intimate Fletcher Opera Theater hosts the Carolina Ballet between seasonal migrations, while the Meymandi Concert Hall’s rich, warm acoustics make it the ideal home for the North Carolina Symphony. More experimental plays and pieces can be found at the newest space, the Kennedy Theater.
