January 5th - Ralph's World

Theatre at the Center - Munster, IN

Ralph’s World is the mega-fun musical planet where kids rock and dance to their own and their parents’ delight. It’s the creation of Ralph Covert: indie rocker, songwriter, playwright, and children’s book author. He’s taken the same high-energy and super-melodic sense that he developed for his touring pop-rock band (The Bad Examples) to kid’s music- basically only the lyrics are changed for the ears of the innocent. His McCartneyesque style (both musically and his sense of charm) has won him hundreds of thousands of three-feet-and-under fans and their parents.
Adults: $20Students: $10
