A Clearing in the Forest: Puppets
Peter Jay Sharp Children's Glade (at West 106th Street)

Sunday, September 9, 2012, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm (rain date: September 16, 2012)

Watch the epic story of NYC’s drinking water supply unfold in an original production by Arm-of-the-Sea Theater in Central Park's natural playground, the Peter J. Sharp Children's Glade. Through a shimmering tapestry of poetry, puppetry and evocative music, City that Drinks the Mountain Sky brings alive the lyrical landscape of the Catskills-- -- to portray the on-going story of the watershed and the uneasy marriage of those who must protect its vulnerable flowing treasure.
