It's the holiday season in New York City and the Primms are moving into a new apartment. Imagine their surprise when they find a crocodile asleep in the bathtub! Although things are a bit crazy at first, Lyle soon wins them over with his saxophone-playing, juggling, dancing ways. Lyle brings joy to everyone he meets and even the neighbors, Ms. Nitpicker and Mr. Grumps, can't resist his charms. A music-filled, tap-dancing treat for the whole family. Tempe Center for the Arts Theater.
