What is ice cream sundae (and saturdays too)?

Can Can kicks off the summer season with their all-new spectacular, ICE CREAM. The historic Seattle venue transforms into a doo-wop ice cream shop -- the colorful backdrop of this effervescent, dance-crazed spectacle of glitz, glitter, and above all, glutes! Inspired by all-time-favorite summer cult-classics like “Grease,” “Cry Baby,” “Hairspray,” and “Beach Party,” ICE CREAM celebrates revelry with the finest in Market fresh food, craft cocktails, and Can Can’s own unique brand of playfully bawdy entertainment.

It’s high kicks, culinary delicacies, and world-class cabaret during the weekend's Magnificent Matinees when Can Can’s award-winning dance theatre company performs a fresh version of ICE CREAM intended for audiences of all ages -- kids welcome!

Is Ice Cream sundae (and saturdays too!) appropriate for my 10-year-old?
