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. Infectious sing-alongs, spry choreography, and Birdwell Island buddies Emily Elizabeth, Cleo, and T-Bone accompany the mellifluous tour of life philosophies that include sharing, honesty, and stepping on as few people as possible. To date, young paws have gripped more than 126 million Clifford books, and explored a popular PBS series and a website that gets 1.9 million hits a month. Accessible even to tinier tots, tales of the enormous pooch instill young minds with wholesome values and a sense of fun.
The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
