Local events for children

Pony Up
    This year’s Kids Day at the Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton will be on Saturday. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., activities will include circus acts by the Bellini Family Circus and Friends, a magic show by the Amazing Zola, free pony rides, the music of the Laughing Pizza Family Band, face-painting, a petting zoo, a birds of prey demonstration, and more. Admission is free for kids under 12.

Go, Suzi!
    A reminder: Suzi Shelton, a Brooklyn singer-songwriter who has dubbed herself an “all-around children’s rock goddess,” will give the final performances of the season at the Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre in Sag Harbor. Today, tomorrow, and Saturday at 11 a.m., Suzi and friends will treat audiences to interactive dance and music from the CDs “No Ordinary Day” and “Simply Suzi,” which have catchy tunes like “Scooter Boy” and “Gone on a Road Trip.”

Teen Esteem
    Starting next Thursday, a teen theater troupe, Act T.W.O., will perform short plays about problems adolescents face every day. The esteem-building performances aim to teach teenagers about social awareness, mental and physical health, positive relationships, and how and where to seek help when confronted with a difficult situation. Performances will be on Thursdays from 6 to 7 p.m. at the Hampton Bays Community Center. Registration will be ongoing. The troupe has requested that those interested get in touch with the Southampton Youth Bureau.
