So many concert-goers have been thrilled to get back to concerts this summer and are ready for even more as we head into fall. Concerts are a blast, but it's also fun to attend many other things Lansing has to offer.

I am talking plays, musicals, and other things that places like the Wharton Center in East Lansing have to offer. I was on their website and there are many different things to enjoy that may enlighten you and your whole family.

Someplace Different To Bring The Family

If you thought about checking out the performing arts or introducing something new to the family, this may be it. So much to pick from at the Wharton Center. According to and Bob Hoffman who I talked to this morning, Wharton Center is back open and tickets are on sale.

I’m more excited than ever to announce most shows at Wharton Center are on sale and the staff is excited to welcome people back.  There’s something magical about this year, Hoffman said. During the shutdown, they were working on safety measures for when the time came to reopen. We have hand sanitizer everywhere. We have ticket-less tickets. We have misters so we’re misting the theaters after every performance, and we have a newly calibrated air filter in the whole building.
