What a croc! Loveable Lyle livens up a summer's day. When the Primm family moves into their New York City apartment, their son Joshua is surprised to find a crocodile in the tub. The multi-talented Lyle quickly becomes part of the family, but a nasty neighbor, Mr. Grumps, has it out for the reptile, and it is only a matter of time before he accuses Lyle of frightening his cat. Lyle is shipped off to the zoo, but his old showbiz partner, Hector P. Valenti, jailbreaks him just in time to save the day when Mr. Grumps' brownstone catches fire.

Not all animals are as friendly and well-mannered as good ol' Lyle the Crocodile, so we're inviting audiences to stay after the performance - at no additional charge - and join the City of Kansas City's Safety Street for a live pet safety demonstration. Learn how dogs communicate through body language, the correct way to meet an unfamiliar dog, the responsibilities of pet ownership, and more. Thank you to the KCMO Health Dept.
