Sid the Science Kid
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.
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.
RiverCenter for the Performing Arts
The sheer magnitude of the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts can be conveyed in a number of ways. Take its construction materials, for instance: within the 245,000-square-foot complex are 300,000 bricks, 200 miles of wiring, 50 million pounds of concrete, and at least a couple of lost screwdrivers. Or you could consider the fact that 2,580 people could each find a seat inside at the same time if they split up among the Center’s three separate theaters. Of course, famous faces always speak of a venues greatness, and RiverCenter has seen everyone form Bill Cosby to David Copperfield and Yo-Yo Ma on its stages. But the Center even stretches beyond its physical space. By partnering with the Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus and teaching music to underserved children through its ArtReach program, the Center helps cultivate a culturally enlightened community of which it is a thriving part.
