February 24 & 25 at 11:00 a.m. | Ernest is an ursine troubadour dedicated to a life of music, his grouchiness softened by the whims of his mouse friend Celestine. When she accidentally breaks his beloved violin, they must take a long voyage to Ernest’s country of Gibberitia, home to the only artist who can repair it. When they arrive, they discover that all forms of music have been banned in Gibberitia, and a land once known across the world for its incredible musicians has fallen silent. It is up to Ernest and Celestine to bring music back to the land of bears. Appropriate for ages 6+. (GKIDS)
