Weekend fun with METRO: April 26-28


Ditch Netflix this weekend and get out of the house for some fun, eye-popping events. We've got a spectacular circus-like performance set to classical music, a pop rock group, and a spooky musical for the young ones.

Wherever you go this weekend, take METRO to avoid the stress of driving through traffic and finding a parking space. Download our METRO Trip App to find your exact bus and arrival times. You can also buy a ticket using your smartphone by downloading our METRO Q mobile ticketing app. You'll find it's convenient and easy to ride METRO.

Event: "Goosebumps the Musical: Phantom of the Auditorium." Brooke and Zeke can't wait to co-star in their school's musical – until they hear a rumor that the musical, "The Phantom," is cursed.

Stine, this musical is recommended for first graders and up. Children under the age of three, including sleeping babies, are not allowed in the theater.
