Blue's Clues musicalJune 2-3 and 9-10

Yoo Hoo, It’s Blue!

Join Blue and Steve as Plaza Theatrical Productions presents Blue’s Clues: The Most Spectacular Place, an interactive musical adventure based on the popular Nickelodeon television series. On stage at the Long Island Children’s Museum, the loveable Blue and her human companion lead the audience on a clue-based journey in search of the most spectacular place of all. The quest takes them through Storybook Forest, where Blue and Steve meet the three little pigs, Goldilocks, and other characters from classic fairy tales, all the way to outer space, where the pair discovers planets and other celestial wonders. When they find the final clue, Blue and Steve learn that aside from the surprise-filled world of theater, home is the most spectacular place of all.
