“We can’t wait for the Mahaiwe’s fifth Free Fun Friday! This year, the audience can sing along with The Muppet Movie and enjoy surprises throughout the screening,” says Mahaiwe Executive Director Beryl Jolly. “We are delighted to partner with IS183, so kids can enjoy make-a-monster activities in the lower lobby promenade before and after the movie, and we greatly appreciate the sponsorship from the Highland Street Foundation, which makes this program possible.”
