10:00 a.m. | "The Big Fib"

In the era of fake news, kids need to learn to be able to tell what’s true from what’s false. And what better way to do that than a game show that puts kids in the driver’s seat, adults on the hot seat, and a sound-effects robot strapped to the roof? During the game, you'll meet two people who claim to be experts in a particular topic, but one of them is actually…a BIG FIBBER! Join host Deborah Goldstein and silly sound effects robot L.I.S.A. (aka Live In-Studio Audience robot) as a human child contestant asks insightful questions, weighs the evidence presented and helps us identify our BIG FIBBER!


12:00 p.m. | "The Past and The Curious"

Don’t let anyone tell you History can’t be fun. "The Past And The Curious" host Mick Sullivan loves to get excited about people and places of the past - and he loves to share that excitement with others. From big developments to tiny little footnotes, there’s always a great story hiding somewhere. Through a few of these stories, plenty of laughs and a few songs, Mick’s performance will highlight some of the most interesting and amazing animals history has ever seen.


2:00 p.m. | Nat Geo Kids "Greeking Out "

Oh, Muses! Hear this podcast and allow us to recall some of the greatest stories ever told. Stories of gods and goddesses, monsters, and heroes! Enjoy this kid-friendly retelling of classic ancient Greek myths for the whole family, featuring Featuring narrator Kenny Curtis and the Oracle of Wifi (played by Jillian Hughes).


Sunday, April 21

10:00 a.m. | Circle Round

Circle Round adapts age-old folktales from around the world into sound- and music-rich audio plays for modern kids ages 3-103. Join host Rebecca Sheir, composer Eric Shimelonis, and a talented cast of actors as they bring two exciting folktales to life on stage. One will be a brand new, never-before-heard Circle Round tale. The other will be a listener favorite chosen…by you! Cast your vote on one of the following stories as you purchase your tickets:


12:00 p.m. | "But Why"

"But Why" is a show led by kids! They ask the questions and find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. "But Why" tackles topics large and small, from why flamingos stand on one leg to how circuits work to whether it’s ever okay to lie. No question is off limits, and we let your curiosity guide us!


2:00 p.m. | Peter from "Story Pirates"

Peter from the "Story Pirates" podcast needs help! He’s coming to perform stories written by kids, but he forgot to bring any stories OR any of the other Story Pirates! He will need the kids in the audience to help him write and perform a brand new story on the spot. No rehearsal? No script? No problem!
