For $50, you get tickets for a family or four for reserved orchestra-level seating in sections 104 or 105 on Saturday, November 17, at 1 p.m. (up to a $114 value, including all fees).

Clifford the Big Red Dog celebrates his golden anniversary as the world’s most beloved giant canine in an all-new musical adventure devised to entertain and enlighten audiences of all ages.
