Animal Babies

Ages 2 and 3 years. Check out some insect babies that we help raise here at the Nature Center. Learn about what big changes they will make to become adults. Dress for outdoor activities, weather permitting. Pre-registration and pre-payment for these popular programs is encouraged. Walk-ins are welcome if space is available. Participation is limited to 12. $5 per child.  Brandywine Creek State Park, August 11th, 9:30 a.m.




Set in the show’s namesake city in the Roaring Twenties, CHICAGO is a tale of merry murderesses and the corrupt legal system that made them the original celebrity criminals. Featuring such hits as “All That Jazz,” “Mister Cellophane,” and “Razzle Dazzle,” and paired with stunning choreography, this musical satire is a witty and sexy look at fame, fortune, and everything that comes with it.  Schwartz Center for the Arts, August 11th and 12th, 7 p.m.



The B-52s

It has been said that the B-52s are as quintessentially American as the Beach Boys. And 25 years and over 20 million albums into their career, the B-52s remain among the most beloved rock stars ever. The Freeman Stage at Bayside, August 9th, 7 p.m.
