The Peoples Improv Theater presents a family-friendly musical comedy that blends music, puppets, and fantasy with real science and space exploration history, in its story of the demoted planet Pluto's quest of self-discovery.
The year is 2006, and there's been a big shake up in the Milky Way: Pluto has been reclassified as a dwarf planet! When news of its demotion reaches the small planetoid, Pluto leaves the Solar System on a cosmic journey meeting groovy satellites, fun-loving gas giants, and a galaxy of other celestial oddballs on its quest to become a planet again. Best for ages 5 to 10.
See it if your kids don’t need a lot of bells and whistles in their theater-going experience.
Don't see it if you have young kids who are easily bored. The 6-9 year-olds in attendance seemed to like it, but I’m not sure about kids outside that range.
See it if you have a child or bring a child (or children) between 2 1/2 and 7 with any interest in science.
Don't see it if you don't have young children to bring or you don't like the unevenness of improv.

See it if you have kids to entertain, or you don't mind the kid-in-you to be entertained, & at the same time learn cool science facts & life lessons.
Don't see it if you are in a serious mode/mood as this is a "child-like" take on the Pluto case- but not childish in its creativity & talented performances.
