Some Pig
June 4: Charlotte’s Web Wilbur the pig doesn’t want to become a bacon breakfast. Charlotte the spider steps in to help by spinning creative words that describe him into her web. Her hard work convinces the farmer—and everyone at the local fair—that Wilbur is more than potential for pork. Based on the classic book by E.B. White, this performance shows how even unlikely friends can save the day. Recommended ages 4 and up. 11 am & 1:30 pm. $15. Emelin Theatre. 153 Library Ln., Mamaroneck. 914-698-0098; emelin.org

A Time to Rhyme

June 17, 24, July 1: Rhyme Time by the Hudson Why have nursery rhymes been passed down through the generations? Well, besides the fact that children (and adults) have fun with them, they’re a great tool for teaching children basic communication and diction skills. At Boscobel’s outdoor program, little tykes ranging from one to five years old learn about the world around them through rhymes, songs, and stories. They even have the chance to play with a giant parachute. 9:30 am. Registration required. $45 adult and child. Boscobel House and Gardens. 1601 Rte. 9D, Garrison. 845-265-3638; www.boscobel.org
