Kid's Korner

Go wild! This month, the Valley welcomes hungry caterpillars, a wolf, and a rock band singin’ about monkeys



Wiggle Time

Nov. 4: The Wiggles “Go Bananas!” Traveling all the way from Down Under, the Wiggles waggle into Albany’s Palace Theatre with a musical production that celebrates all things animal-related. The tunes Sam, Murray, Jeff, and Anthony belt out are off the group’s latest album, The Wiggles Go Bananas!, which includes the smash hit “The Monkey Man.” The show is designed to be interactive, so the preschoolers in the audience will likely catch a serious case of monkey see, monkey do. 6:30 p.m. $12-$42. • 19 Clinton Ave., Albany. 518-465-3334

Big Kids

Nov. 6: Disney’s Imagination Movers You might know these guys from their self-titled Disney Channel television show, but you haven’t truly seen the Imagination Movers work their magic until you catch them live, as you can this month at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center. Audience members can rock out to kid-friendly tunes like “What’s in the Fridge?” and “I Want My Mommy (Time for Bed).” 4 p.m. $19.50-$49.50. • Civic Center Plaza, Poughkeepsie. 845-454-5800

Reading Illuminated

Nov. 7: The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favorites Set to original music by the award-winning Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, this production is based on three classics from the legendary children’s author Eric Carle: The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud, and The Mixed-Up Chameleon. The troupe’s innovative set design and black-light production will leave young theatergoers at the Egg agape in wonder. 11 a.m. $15. • Empire State Plaza, Albany. 518-473-1061

Wild Things

Nov. 7: Wildlife Program Rusty Johnson, an Amazon explorer who has appeared on Today, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and The Late Show with David Letterman, stops by the Unison Theater with the exotic and endangered species he’s encountered on his excursions through the wild. Hawks, vultures, owls, alligators, turtles, boas, and giant pythons — oh my! 1 p.m. $10. • 68 Mountain Rest Rd., New Paltz. 845-255-1559

Huffin’ and Puffin’

Nov. 21: The Wolf The wolf has long been the subject of much fascination, as evidenced by its starring role in many a fairy tale. Here, the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum offers a rare opportunity to get up close with the creature in a safe environment: The museum is hosting a seven-year-old Arctic gray wolf visiting from the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem. Guests also learn about the important role wolves play in a healthy ecosystem, as well as what’s being done to protect these animals. 4 & 5:30 p.m. $22, $16 children. Register early to ensure enrollment. • 20 Kenridge Farm Dr., Cornwall. 845-534-5506
