Wily Wayfarers "Ruddigore Abridged"

A show on Halloween? at 2:00 pm? Are you nuts? OK, Here's our thinking. Perfect for the younger ones, this muppet style show allows you to dress them up in their costume, come to the show, then go Trick-or- Treating, and be home before Dark, done - finished.

Ruddigore Abridged - Wily Wayfarers
Sun Nov 1 - 2:00 pm
Not really in October, but you can get one more use of the darling Halloween costume you designed and built or bought before taking it to Goodwill. Don't forget to set your clocks BACK or you'll be awfully early (or is it late?) for the show.
