‘Clifford the Big Red Dog Live!’ family musical to share big ideas Oct. 18 at Eisenhower

The Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State will present “Clifford the Big Red Dog Live!,” a big family musical, at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 18, in Eisenhower Auditorium.

The largest and most colorful canine in the world will come to life in an interactive musical aimed at teaching children some of life’s biggest lessons—sharing, playing fair, being a good friend, helping others, telling the truth and being kind. Clifford will weave his big ideas in an adventure filled with singing, dancing and more.

Purchase tickets, which are $19 for an adult, $15 for a University Park student and $19 for a person 18 and younger. A grant from the University Park Allocation Committee makes Penn State student prices possible.

Audio description, which is especially helpful to patrons with sight loss, is available for this performance at no extra charge to ticket holders.

McQuaide Blasko Endowment provides support for the presentation. WPSU is a media sponsor.

Kids Connections, which is free for ticket holders and includes a craft-centered, child-friendly activity provided by WPSU, takes place in Eisenhower one hour before the show. Due to space and time restrictions, Kids Connections participation is limited.
