Play on With Bay Street Theater

Two six-week programs for young thespians through Bay Street Theater will begin on Sept. 26 outdoors on the grounds of the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum.

Shakescene! Let's Put on a Play will be from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays for kids ages 7 to 12. Students will practice and perform an abridged version of a Shakespeare play, learn the history of that era, and engage in theater-oriented activities. It will be led by Allen O'Reilly, Bay Street's director of education, and Teresa DeBerry, who has taught and performed in many states.

A second workshop is Musical Theater for Kids: Willy Wonka, to take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Bethany Dellapolla, who teaches and performs locally and in New York City, will guide children in singing and acting techniques as they learn select scenes and songs from the popular show "Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka," for children ages 7 to 13. There will be a presentation for families at the end of the workshop.

Each workshop costs $500. More information and registration links are online at Questions can be emailed to Mr. O'Reilly at [email protected].

Young Global Citizens

The Southampton Arts Center has a new event series for children ages 11 through 15 in which they will learn how to be good "global citizens." Tomorrow at 4:30 p.m., Jillian Kampf of the Surfrider Foundation's eastern Long Island chapter will lead a discussion about ocean conservation and a painting activity, followed by a pizza and Ping-Pong hangout at 6. The cost is $25, and financial assistance is available. Parents will be permitted to drop off their children for the event.
