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. While its initial run ended in 2012, the cast still entertain and educate kids in homes and classrooms across the country. 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.
The Palace Theatre
The Palace Theatre was hailed as "Connecticut's Most Magnificent" when it opened in 1927. Its grandeur was designed by architect Thomas Lamb of Madison Square Garden fame, who outfitted the vaudeville palace with a gilded proscenium and sweeping, pearl-shaded balconies. Today, audiences flock to the historic theater for performances from the Stamford Symphony, the Ballet School of Stamford, comedians, and musical acts.
