Recreation Parks & Public Property: Commissioner Thomas DiMaggio, Director

"Mrs. Doubtfire" Broadway Show

If we have enough interest, The Parks & Recreation Department will obtain tickets for the Broadway show Mrs. Doubtfire on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 8:00 PM.  Tickets for the Orchestra seats are $130 each and includes transportation to and from the show.  The bus will leave the Parks Department at 6:00 PM.

About the show:
Daniel Hillard, a struggling, out-of-work actor, will do anything for his kids. After losing custody in a messy divorce, he disguises himself as Scottish nanny Euphegenia Doubtfire in a desperate attempt to stay in their lives. As his new persona begins to take on a life of her own, Mrs. Doubtfire teaches Daniel more than he bargained for about how to be a father. A hysterical and heartfelt story about holding onto your loved ones against all odds, Mrs. Doubtfire is the next big musical comedy for families — of all kinds.

There is a limit of purchasing 4 tickets per person for any Broadway show.  Please call or come to the Parks Department, 201-804-2482 to reserve your seat.
