BUGS BUNNY AT THE SYMPHONY

Bugs Bunny is back—and he’s bringing even more friends! “Bugs Bunny at the Symphony” follows the smash success in 2009 of “Bugs Bunny on Broadway.” This new concert of Looney Tunes on the big screen with live orchestra accompaniment includes old favorites like“What’s Opera, Doc?” and “The Rabbit of Seville.” But this time Bugs, Elmer Fudd, and Daffy Duck are joined by Tweety, Sylvester, Pepe Le Pew, The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo—and even Tom and Jerry! Perfect for the whole family—nostalgia for older concertgoers and a great way to introduce kids to the symphony!  The Grand, March 18th, 7:30 p.m. and March 19th, 2 p.m.
