Fabulous in East Hampton

Our Fabulous Variety Show is partnering with Project Most to offer theater and dance programs for children, teens, and adults at the Neighborhood House in East Hampton, with a couple of three-week series beginning on Sept. 13.

An open house on Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. will offer an introduction to the teachers and overview of the programming, which will include puppetry, tap, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, acting and improv, musical theater, and Broadway tap classes for children as young as 18 months old. After the first mini-series of workshops, a longer fall semester will start on Oct. 4. 

Registration can be done in person at the open house on Wednesday, or a full schedule and registration information can be found online at

More at Most

Project Most will kick off its September programming on the 11th, but this week may be the time to register, as many programs are limited to just eight participants. STEM workshops happen on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. for 3 and 4-year-olds and for kids in kindergarten through third grade. The younger group will investigate spinning, rolling, and balancing on Sept. 11, while the older group will mix up "inspired potions." On Sept. 18, it'll be tall ramps for toy cars for the younger set and making chalk-paint for the older kids. The cost for each hourlong workshop is $20, or $15 for members of Project Most. 

Looking ahead to Sept. 13, Project Most will begin three weeks of coed lacrosse clinics for kindergartners through third graders from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. They continue on Sept. 20 and 27, with each session costing $10. These are limited to 15 players.

Registration for all workshops and clinics is online at, by calling 631-655-4586, or by emailing [email protected].

School Stress Relief

For kids in sixth grade and up who are nervous about heading back to school, the Hampton Library in Bridgehampton has a remedy: back-to-school stress-relief kits, which they can make in a workshop on Tuesday afternoon starting at 3:30. 

Squeezing a little more summer out of summer, a story time for kids 2 and up next Thursday at 4 p.m. will have a campfire theme. On Friday, Sept. 10, the library will mount its own version of the around-the-world adventure game "The Amazing Race" complete with fun challenges for ages 8 to 12 at 4 p.m.

Participants in library programs must register in advance and must wear a mask.

Just Dance or Just Craft

At the East Hampton Library, high schoolers can play Just Dance on Nintendo Switch after hours from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday. And those looking for some community service credits can earn them by painting rocks with uplifting messages. Take-and-make kits with all the supplies can be picked up at the library tomorrow from 3 to 5 p.m. Shrinky Dink key chains are the take-and-make project for Friday, Sept. 10. Supplies are limited.

For younger patrons there will be a bear story time and craft on Tuesday at 4 p.m. for ages 4 to 6, a D.I.Y. pencil case craft for ages 7 to 10 on Wednesday at 4 p.m., and a faux stained-glass craft for ages 3 to 6 next Thursday at 4 p.m. Advance sign-up on the library's website is required.
