The star physicists at Fiske Planetarium and Frequent Flyers dancers are pulling from galactic exploration spanning the time frame from the 1800s to 50,000 years in the future integrating rendered video projections into the performance.



Phamaly presents Rapunzel — Saturday, April 18 Performances at 2:00 & 7:30; Sunday, April 19 at 2:00 pm

Rapunzel @ The Dairy CenterRapunzel is a witty, tongue-in-cheek, one hour musical retelling of a perennial favorite that gives us a possessive mother who happens to be a witch, a tentative young man who happens to be a prince, and a strong-willed but naïve young girl with the longest hair you’re ever likely to come across. Designed with an appeal to young and adult audiences alike, the play has a contemporary moral about parent-child relationships, the challenges of growing up (for both children and adults), the joys of love, and challenges of being different.

With a book and lyrics by two creators of the hit television show “Friends,” rest assured this fairy tale isn’t going to be business as usual!


Special For Kids in The Boe — Saturday, April 18 at 12:30 pm

Song of the Sea @The Dairy CenterFrom the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells comes a breathtakingly gorgeous, hand-drawn masterpiece. Based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, Song of the Sea tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of their past. As enthralling for adults as it is for children young and old, Song of the Sea is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor that is destined to become a classic.
