NEW BRUNSWICK—The State Theatre announced its fall dates for Milk & Cookies, a free series of performances for children ages three to eight and their families. The program, fully-funded and sponsored by The Provident Bank Foundation and presented by the State Theatre, comprises a total of six performances at 10 a.m. and noon on three select Saturdays.
Featuring live music and stories, the program features a diverse lineup of New Jersey performers. The fall schedule is as follows: Gerald Fierst: Pumpkin Tales on Oct. 2; and other story tellers to be announced for Nov. 6 and Dec. 11. Milk & Cookies events are free, but advance registration is required. To register, contact Jennifer Cunha at 1-732-246-7469, ext. 545 / jcunha@StateTheatreNJ.org. Because space is limited audiences are encouraged to register as early as possible.
True to the name of the series, children attending the shows will be treated to complimentary milk and cookies (while supplies last). The milk is courtesy of the program’s food sponsor, Farmland Dairies. The cookies this fall will be provided by a number of sororities from various colleges across New Jersey. Providing the cookies for Oct. 2 will be the Rutgers chapter of Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority. In addition to providing the 200 cookies for the day, the sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda will also volunteer their time on Oct. 2 to assist with the event.
Gerald Fierst will present Pumpkin Tales on Saturday, Oct. 2, at 10 a.m. and noon. Hailed by ABC News as “a master storyteller,” Fierst returns to the State Theatre’s Milk & Cookies series. This time he’s bringing folktales from around the world that celebrate the bounty of nature’s harvest. This fun, interactive program engages your fingers, voice, and imagination to help tell the stories.
