Lake Placid Center for the Arts: Free, Young & Fun Series

The Lake Placid Center for the Arts will be bringing back their virtual “Free, Young, & Fun Performance Series” via Zoom this August, designed for audience members to watch on their mobile device or computer. The series brings a variety of performances to kids of all ages within and beyond the Lake Placid community, all while remaining in accordance with NYS health and safety guidelines.

“The Young & Fun summer series of shows has become such a
treasured part of our summer programming at LPCA. When our doors shut and we learned we could not safely do indoor performances this summer, I was so sad about disappointing the kids. So, it was indeed thrilling to hear that two of our scheduled performers, Gary the Great and David Engel’s Pirate School, were able to adapt their shows to a Zoom platform. It’s so exciting that kids can still have the joy of a live performance right on
their laptops.” Says Tara Palen, Director of Education and Outreach.

The 2020 Young and Fun Anywhere Performance Series includes the following virtual events:


Join magician Gary the Great for a high-energy blast of magic, comedy,
and juggling. This highly improvised show has tons of audience
participation and includes mind-blowing magic for all ages. You never
know what’s going to happen in this show, and that’s what makes it so
uniquely special.


Pirate School! is a madcap, swashbuckling solo show created and
performed by veteran New York actor David Engel. This riotous,
interactive pirate escapade satisfies children’s universal curiosity for
the briny buccaneers of yore, while promoting everyday polite behavior
and social-courage.

Online registration is required for both performances to receive a link
to enter the performance on Zoom. There is a suggested $10 donation per
log-in (per family). The LPCA greatly appreciates the continued support.
