From the Staten Island Advance!

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- While a new dedicated maritime-themed school is no longer being pursued on Staten Island, several schools in the borough are integrating maritime curriculum into a variety of subjects.

PS 59, New Brighton, has been incorporating maritime-themed curriculum into its daily teachings by focusing on the impact of the New York Harbor and the Billion Oyster Project -- which works to restore 1 billion live oysters in the harbor over the next two decades -- across all grades from pre-K to fifth grade.

    We excited to share that Title I PAC have been given a block of tickets to giveaway to our school community! To allow for the most number of families to be served we will be giving away tickets as "family packs."

    Tickets are for: SHOW UP, KIDS!
    Peter Michael Marino's Show Up, Kids! returns to the Kraine Theater. This interactive, semi-improvised family show for kids 3-10 puts a wildly comedic, theatrical twist on the traditional kids' show. When the main attraction doesn't show up, Pete enlists the help of the kids to provide prompts and control everything from plot to props, characters to costumes, and settings to sound in a one-of-a-kind, 55-minute laughfest.

    "Fantastic fun! A one-man whirling dervish of energy, comic timing, physical agility, and out and out hilarity." — The Front Row Center

    "Hilarious! Marino knows what kids find funny. A show of this caliber is an opportunity to show up for!" — The Wee Review

    Location:
    The Kraine Theater
    85 E 4th St
    New York, NY 10003
