Pete the Cat

When Jimmy draws a blank in art class, Pete proves to be the perfect pal to help Jimmy find his inspiration. Based on the popular series by Kimberly and James Dean, join Jimmy and Pete on a new musical adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus.

All ages allowed. Children under 2 are free but require a lap pass ticket for entry.

Galumpha

We galumph when we hop instead of walk, when we take the scenic route instead of the efficient one, when we are interested in means rather than in ends. We galumph when we create obstacles only to enjoy overcoming them. Combining stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy and inventive choreography, Galumpha brings to life a world of imagination, beauty, muscle and merriment. Three performers create a sensory feast of images ranging from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Age Recommendation: All Ages
All ages are allowed. Children under 2 are free but require a lap pass ticket for entry.

Circo Comedia

Unpredictable thrills, side-splitting comedy and daredevil stunts are the signature style of Circo Comedia starring the fantastic duo Jean Saucier & Patrick Cote from Montreal as they perform their distinctive style of humor, acrobatic tricks, daring feats, magic and eccentricity. Following in the tradition of the Quebec Circus, Jean Saucier, master equilibrist, juggler, trick cyclist, acrobat and magician performs his feats from dizzying heights while Patrick Cote, clown, expert roller skater and drummer, innocently tries his best to be the (imperfect) assistant. Delirously funny. Filled with unforgettable moments.

Age Recommendation: Best for All Ages
All ages are allowed. Children under two are free but require a lap pass to enter.

Elephant & Piggie’s We Are In a Play!

Elephant Gerald and Piggie sing and dance their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense in Elephant & Piggie’s WE ARE IN A PLAY! This vaudevillian romp of a musical is based on Mo Willems’s beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books. Together, these best friends face fundamental questions like: What do you wear to a fancy pool costume party? Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy? Backed by the nutty backup singers The Squirrelles, the duo even gets the audience involved in the action. You’ll be doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long!
