Clifford the Big Red Dog Live!
A Big Family Musical

2:00 pm Sunday, October 18, 2015

It only takes a little to BE BIG™! The “big, red dog,” a character beloved for generations in the Scholastic books by Norman Bridwell, comes to life on stage in a BIG way in this interactive musical. Join Clifford, Emily Elizabeth, and all of their friends from Birdwell Island as they embark on an adventure filled with singing, dancing, and more. Share in the timeless values of Clifford’s BIG ideas: Share, Play Fair, Have Respect, Work Together, Be Responsible, Be Truthful, Be Kind, Believe in Yourself, Be a Good Friend, and Help Others. It’s a musical experience the whole family will love.
