Big Nate The Musical

Nate Wright is a detention-riddled sixth grader who also happens to be the drummer for the greatest garage band in the history of the galaxy - Enslave the Mollusk! Inspired by the hit comic strip and book series by Lincoln Peirce, this rollicking musical rocks and rolls from page to stage. Amp up the volume. Let Nate rule the house.

Give your March Break a little bit of Nate style Rock n' Roll by joining us for performances from March 12 to March 15 at 2:30pm plus March 24 and 25 at 11am and 1pm in the Plaza Suite at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
