If you are bringing the kids, this will be easier than you think…
  1. Tell them about Kids’ Day on Sunday, Sept 22.

    2. We have Princesses! Cinderella, Snow White & Jasmine will grace the stage from Happily Ever After Productions! Look for the Princesses to sing, dance & tell their stories! After each performance they will take pictures and meet with little ones for some one-on-one time!
    3. There will be magic in the air! Local magician Marcus Lehman will delight audiences with stage tricks and up-close magic throughout the day!
  2. Can’t make it on Sunday for Kids’ Day – No worries!
    1. There will be inflatables, bounce houses & obstacle courses outside the building every day of the show, available for unlimited free play with an adult admission ticket (which as mentioned is only $5 online or $10 at the door).
