the Secret of the Cardboard Rocket
Thursday, May 15, 2014 – 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, May 17, 2014 – 2:00 p.m.
A family program designed for children 4 and up and the child in all of us.
Climb aboard a magical cardboard rocket with two young adventurers, Bonnie and Marcus, and experience a breathtaking, up-close look at each of our solar system's planets with guidance from a talking "Astronomy Book" - a character personified by a wise, kind old man. It's not until the end of the adventure when you find out what the true secret of the rocket is - something that makes this apparently impossible trip to the edges of the universe and back become possible. This show is particularly appropriate for young children and their families.

One Wildcat Way, South Weymouth, MA 02190
