Some new and exciting events to keep track of include the Into The Woods production, Richmond County Orchestra, Horticulture Walks and more!

Into the Woods:


The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with a little help from Stephen Sondheim in Into the Woods, an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. Catch the show times: March 17th, 18th, 24th, & 25th!

Flowering Tree & Shrub Walk:


The magnolias, cherry blossoms, mahonia, jasmine, and redbud flourish in our unique NY Chinese Scholar’s Garden.  Come see the glory of the NYCSG in the spring and learn about the long-standing horticultural tradition that seeks to find beauty in all seasons.  Your tour tickets include admission to the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden for the rest of the day after the walk. This event is rain or shine on April 7th at 1:00PM.

Richmond County Orchestra:


“Richmond County Orchestra at the Movies” features popular songs from movies including music by John Williams used in Star Wars, Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, Superman, and more.
