The Long Island Children’s Museum is sponsoring a “Puppets Take Long Island” festival this summer with nearly 100 performances for kids at various venues across Long Island – but the organizers have thrown in an entertaining treat for Mom and Dad as well.

The “Puppet Slam – Puppets After Dark: Immature Entertainment for Mature Audiences” goes on at 8 p.m. on July 10 at the Long Island Children’s Museum, 11 Davis Ave., Garden City. Naughty and nice puppetry is on the agenda. These short-form skits are for ages 18 and older. Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, who plays Abby Cadabby on “Sesame Street, is scheduled to host.

Tickets are $20 per person with advance purchase recommended. Beer and wine will be sold. For more information on the show -- or on the children's performances -- call 516-224-5800 or visit
