We took our grandson to see this show at The Whiting. The show was delightful and he had so much fun; mesmerized is a more apt description. The theater is showing it's age but it is still a marvelous venue.

Used some of the space for a photoshoot with some local Flint talent. The grounds are beautiful to use for senior pics, wedding shots, and lots of other shoots requiring scenery and a nice backdrop.
