On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond | Tuesday, February 20, 2018—7 PM | $25

On Golden Pond is an American treasure.  Many of us are familiar with the story through the Academy Award-winning film with Henry and Jane Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. Others have attended one of the literally thousands of productions this extraordinary play has received over the years. Something deep and profound resonates through the events that unfold in this American masterpiece brilliantly penned by Ernest Thompson.


Aimee Louisanne with T-Rex and friend from DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE

Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live | Tuesday, April 17, 2018—7 PM | $25

Get ready for the ultimate playdate – 65 million years in the making – as Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE guides your family on a breathtaking tour that begins in pre-historic Australia.  You’ll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance. Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE’s puppets are so extraordinarily realistic you may feel the urge to run and hide – but don’t!  Because you won’t want to miss a minute of this fun, unique, entertaining and educational live show created by Erth Visual & Physical of Sydney, Australia.  While it may indeed have been 65 million years in the making, we think you’ll agree it’s well worth the wait.
