Fabulous Tapping

"Tap: The Rhythm Awakens" on Friday, June 11, and June 12 is the latest production from Our Fabulous Variety Show, its first stage show since December of 2019. To be held at the Children's Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton at 6:30 p.m. both days, student and adult dancers will pay tribute to the art and history of tap dance while celebrating each performer's own dance journey. 

Tickets are $15 and can be bought at the door, in advance by phone at 631-507-4603, or online at ourfabulousvarietyshow.org.

Take Ten!

In Sag Harbor, Pierson High School theater students will perform "Take Ten," a collection of 10-minute plays and musical numbers, in person tonight and tomorrow night at 7 and on Saturday at 2 p.m. at the school. Tickets can be reserved at no cost by emailing [email protected].

An Aquatic Safari

On Sunday at 11 a.m., the South Fork Natural History Museum will host an all-ages "bay beach safari" in which kids can explore shallow marine habitats that are home to fish, crabs, snails, and other creatures. Water shoes have been recommended and advance registration is required by email at [email protected] or by phone at 631-537-9735. 

The location will be announced upon registration. Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for children, and free for museum members.

Community Service for Teens

The East Hampton Library is seeking teen volunteers to help make a video that promotes summer programs for young adults. To take part, teens should use a script posted on the event calendar at easthamptonlibrary.org. From there, librarians will edit together videos from the participants, who will earn community service if submissions are made by Saturday. Questions can be directed to [email protected] or 631-324-0222, extension 5.

The library is also seeking teen letter writers to welcome new middle school graduates into the young-adult world. The letters will be included in "welcome packets" for new Y.A. patrons. Sign-up is online via the library's event calendar, and the supplies can be picked up tomorrow between 2:30 and 4:45 p.m. Letters should be returned by Monday to earn community service credits.

The library's teen advisory board will meet over Zoom on Sunday at 4 p.m. Sign-up is on the library website.

For Mystery Lovers

The teen book club at Sag Harbor's John Jermain Memorial Library is now reading "Spin" by Lamar Giles. A discussion will happen on Wednesday at 5 p.m. over Zoom. The library has copies for checkout (though it can also be downloaded as an e-book), and sign-up is on the calendar at johnjermain.org.

Games and Flower Crowns

Kids ages 8 to 12 have been invited to play board games tomorrow at 4 p.m. at the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton, and on Wednesday at 5 p.m. they can take part in the Minecraft Club. For children in the sixth grade and up, there will be a flower crown-making workshop on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. And for the littlest ones, a celebration of Best Friends Day next Thursday at 4 p.m. will feature stories and bracelet making.

Registration ahead of time is required for all programs and can be done online at myhamptonlibrary.org.

Sounds and Sports

Gian Carlo Feleppa, an eclectic musician, will join Project Most for "A Sea of Sound and the Wonderful World of Music" on June 12 at noon at the East Hampton Neighborhood House. For toddlers ages 2 to 4 with a caregiver, Mr. Feleppa will sing with the kids and explore all aspects of music, from chords and quiet songs to louder songs and different octaves. Admission is $25 per family, and sign-up is online at projectmost.org.

New from Project Most are mixed boys and girls lacrosse clinics for kids in kindergarten through the third grade on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Running through the end of June, the clinics welcome beginners and offer more challenging activities for those who already have some experience with the sport. Clinics are $10 each, and lacrosse sticks will be available. Sign-up is online.
