The Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre in Sag Harbor is offering up a tulip-y tale on Saturday: “The Adventures of Princess Spring Blossom.” Michelle Beshaw, a Brooklyn puppeteer, brings the story, which is about the adventures of the denizens of Tulip Forest during a spring festival. Performances are at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., and tickets cost $10, $9 for grandparents and members, and $5 for children under 3.
The theater also offers puppet play groups on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 9:30 a.m., when children under 3 (and their grown-ups) can stop in for songs, games, and a Minkie the Monkey puppet show. The cost is $15 for members, $25 for drop-ins.
A “messy and fun” Tot Art program filled with projects for the 2-to-4-year-old set happens on Friday mornings at 10:30.
Hats Off to Dr. Seuss
The East Hampton Library will celebrate spring today at 4 p.m., when those 4 and older can make springtime scenes using colorful tissue paper for a collage.
Celebrating Dr. Seuss is de rigueur in March (his birthday was on Friday), and the library will honor Theodor Geisel with a special “Hats Off to You” story time on Saturday from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m. Listeners 3 and up have been invited to wear their favorite hats and make a craft.
Visitors will be transported around the world at tomorrow’s multicultural festival at Pierson High School in Sag Harbor from 6 to 9 p.m. They can feast on international specialties while dancing to the music of various countries.
The suggested donation for admission is $5, which goes toward the gardens at the schools in Sag Harbor and also to a nonprofit international organization called charity: water, which focuses on providing safe drinking water to people in developing nations. For those who want to recreate the experience without the crowd, a multicultural cookbook will be available for purchase.
Hamptons Idol is returning for its sixth year on March 17. The Southampton Youth Bureau will hold this singing and dancing competition from 7:30 to 11 p.m. that day. The price of stardom, or rather watching it, is $10 plus a nonperishable food item. For additional information, the Youth Bureau can be reached at 702-2425. Its Web site is southamptontownny.gov/youthbureau.
