ERTH'S PREHISTORIC AQUARIUM ADVENTURE Headlines McCallum's Annual Family Fun Day

The McCallum Theatre will kick off its fourth decade with the Seventh Annual McCallum Theatre Family Fun Day set for Sunday, October 21, 2018 featuring a performance of the critically-acclaimed Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure. Proceeds from this special annual event will support theatre operations including the McCallum Theatre Education, the Theatre's award-winning arts education program that provides arts training to 40,000 students and educators annually, serving 70% of Coachella Valley classrooms. The Co-Presenting Sponsors of Family Fun Day are The City of Palm Desert and The H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation.

"This has become such a great community tradition at the Theatre," said McCallum President & CEO Mitch Gershenfeld. "The last six years we had sell-out audiences and we anticipate a similar response as we begin our fourth decade of bringing top quality performances and educational experiences to the Coachella Valley community. It's simply a wonderful day for the entire family, with great outdoor activities, special surprises, and a performance on the McCallum stage that will charm both children and children-at-heart. You will really want to purchase your tickets early because Family Fun Day at the McCallum has become one of those can't miss events in the Valley each fall."

Family Fun Day at the McCallum begins at noon on Sunday, October 21st with food, games, and fun arts-related activities for the entire family including face painting, theatre and music games, balloon pops with fantastic prizes, food vendors, action characters and much more. At 2:30pm, all ticket-holders will move into the Theatre to enjoy a dazzling performance of Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure, described as "an adventure to the bottom of the ocean." Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure is an immersive experience that invites you to jump in and explore unknown ocean depths where prehistoric marine reptiles lived eons ago - and maybe live still today! Erth shows are at the forefront of family entertainment, using actors, technology, puppets, science and imagination to create an amazing visual experience that connects young audiences to the real science of paleontology.
