“This show will literally end our Family Theatre season with a bang!” said David Warner, DCCA Artistic Director. “Mr. C finds exciting ways to engage his audiences while exploring and explaining the wonders of science; everyone has a really good time while also learning stuff.” The show, which is appropriate for all ages, starts at 2 p.m.
