Pricks! The Vaccine Musical

Experience the wild and wonderful world of Pricks! The Vaccine Musical. You’ll laugh, tap your feet, and even learn a thing or two about vaccination science. This show covers everything from smallpox to cowpox, influenza, and beyond. We’ll be singing, dancing, and jabbing our way through the history of vaccines and their impact on humanity. That’s right, folks. We’re putting the “whoop” in whooping cough and the “dip” in diphtheria. So, whether you’re a vaccine enthusiast or someone who just loves to get pricked, this is a show you don’t want to miss.
