“Sharin’ A Ride” Mini-Musical at New York Transit Museum

Kid-friendly production, scheduled twice a day over spring break, teaches how mass transit helps makes New York City green

Sharin’ A Ride” Mini-Musical at New York Transit Museum

For six days in April the screening room of the New York Transit Museum will morph from exhibit space to stage, as children ages 4 and up delight in an original performance that connects the history of New York City’s mass transit with the themes of April’s Earth Day.

“Sharin’ A Ride,” written for the Transit Museum by Jonathan Ellers, makes large concepts like sustainability and reducing carbon footprint tangible for kids. The musical features Carbon Footprint Man and The Professor singing, dancing and interacting with children. Part-musical, part-historical tale, “Sharin’ A Ride” encourages kids to be eco-friendly and make use of New York City’s transportation system.

Performances will be offered twice per day at 11 am and 1:30 pm from Tuesday, April 10 to Friday, April 13; and at 1:30 and 3:30 pm on April 14-15, coinciding with spring break for New York City public schools.

The performance is free with Museum admission ($5/child, $7/adult).
