The Pop Ups, March 12 at 11:30am
The Paper Bag Players, March 19 at 2pm

New York, NY, February 15, 2017 –The Jewish Museum will host two exciting concerts for families in March.

The two-time Grammy-nominated kids’ indie rock duo The Pop Ups will perform at the Museum on Sunday, March 12 at 11:30am. The Pop Ups will take kids on an adventure inspired by their acclaimed album and Amazon video special, Great Pretenders Club. The duo transports audiences into a world where imagination becomes reality with a fire-stomping rhino, dancing robots, giant insects, live drawing, huge balloons, and a costume party for Purim. This highly interactive show is propelled by dance beats that will catapult both young and old out of their seats.

The Paper Bag Players—celebrating their 58th year of bringing original, contemporary musical theater to kids—return to the Museum with Trip to the Moon on Sunday, March 19 at 2pm. Children will delight in the Paper Bag Players’ classic blend of cardboard and paper sets, whimsical stories, lovable characters, and live music that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.

Tickets to both concerts are $16 general; $13 Jewish Museum family level members. The concerts are for children ages 3 to 8. Adults are asked to accompany their children.

Tickets for The Pop Ups on Sunday, March 19 at 2pm, can be  purchased online here.
