One of the great things about living in New Jersey is the never-ending options for entertainment.  One of my very favorite venues is NJPAC, short for New Jersey Performing Arts Center, located in Newark.

We have seen some incredible performances here, from plays to concerts that our entire family has loved getting to see.  March and April are loaded with great family options that even the youngest and hard to please will love.

Join Marvin the mouse on the space adventure of a lifetime in Lightwire Theater’s glow-in-the-dark experience on Saturday, March 3, 2018 2:00 PM! Marvin wants to be popular. Constantly bullied by the “cool” rats, he is labeled a loser and a geek. To escape the continuous badgering, Marvin retreats into his science books and a world of fantasy in which he’s the hero. Accompany Marvin on a trip to the moon in his homemade rocket and meet a strange cast of misfit creatures. Will Marvin make his dreams come true and gain the glory and acceptance he craves?
