The epic story of NYC's water supply told in the elemental beauty of puppet theater. Where does the water that flows through New York City’s taps come from? In City That Drinks the Mountain Sky, Arm-of-the-Sea Theatre uses poetry, puppetry, and music to explain how water travels from the Catskill Mountains to millions of urban residents. For ages 5 and older.

KidsLIVE  takes children and their families on an enriching cultural and educational journey—including musical performances, live theatre, opportunities to meet authors and illustrators, and much more.
