These anticipated, family-friendly shows include “Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure,” “Double Dare Live!” “What Do You Do With An Idea,” “The SpongeBob Musical” and “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical.”
All patrons must have a ticket, regardless of age. No babes in arms. Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
