We The People:America Rocks!!
How do you get kids to care about American civics? Dream up a rock musical in which the Founding Fathers are a boy band that inspires a young student running for class president.

Tickets are given out on a first-come, first-served basis. Many performances sell out so arrive early to snag seats. No stroller storage. Ages 8 and up. Note:(Be sure to explain at least the presidents to your kids before they go…don’t want them to get confused lol) click here for ticket info
