Star Shows, Laser Concerts, Holiday Shows Set at RVCC Planetarium in December

The Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium in Branchburg will present in-person laser concerts, star shows and holiday shows for all ages in December, including a special sensory-friendly program designed for families with children on the Autism spectrum or those with developmental disabilities. 

Face masks are required in all campus buildings, including in the Planetarium.

The following shows will be offered at the Planetarium in December:

The Alien Who Stole Christmas
, Saturdays, December 11 & 18, 3 p.m.

Discover the stars visible in the winter sky. Then follow Santa on a trip through the solar system when a friendly alien kidnaps him. Kids on other planets also need presents! (Recommended for ages 6-10)

Winter Wonder Lights, Saturdays, December 11 & 18, 4 and 8 p.m.
Listen to holiday hits such as “Wizards in Winter,” “Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree,” and “Dominic the Donkey” while lasers animate the songs on the dome overhead. (Recommended for ages 6-adult)

Mystery at the North Pole
, Saturdays, December 11 & 18, 7 p.m.

Poor Santa is too ill to deliver presents this year. Who could have done this? Who would want to sabotage Christmas? Was it an elf? A reindeer? The audience will need to look at the suspects and figure out who is guilty of hurting Santa. (Recommended for ages 6-adult)
