Erth's Dinosaur Zoo Live!

This fun and education live adventure 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 that will thrill and entertain kids while stimulating their imaginations in ways that will forever connect them to their world. 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 dinosaurs 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 unique and entertaining live show. While it may indeed have been 65 million years in the making, we think you’ll agree, it’s well worth the wait.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Few musicals of the 1970s have endured quite like the great Andrew Lloyd Weber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. This musical re-telling of the story of Joseph from the Book of Genesis weaves the lyrics of Tim Rice into Webber's memorable pop, rock, country, and calypso melodies. “"This enchanting musical explodes like glittering fireworks. A brilliant celebration of words, music and color. A superb piece of entertainment!"

The Irish... and How They Got That Way

THE IRISH… AND HOW THEY GOT THAT WAY is an uplifting musical celebration of all things Irish in the tumultuous 20th and 21st centuries through the eyes of Pulitzer Prize winning author, Frank McCourt (Angela’s Ashes, ‘Tis, Teacher Man). McCourt’s razor-sharp wit, coupled with his trademark bitter irony, and his boundless love for the Irish are all underscored by glorious music extending all the way from the auld Irish folk ballades, through George M. Cohan’s patriotic love songs to America, World War II standards sung in films of the era, USOs and foxholes all over the world, as well as beloved contemporary hits. This raucous celebration of all things Irish is a jovial, heartbreaking and inspiring tribute. Raise a glass and let's salute those who have dreams for a better life.
