Ypsilanti Youth Theatre

Directed by Rob Papineau
Big fun family show! A hilarious version of Little Red Riding Hood!

Tickets:  Adults $10, Youth/Seniors $6  All Tickets sold at the door, no advance sales.

More than just “The girl with a hood and a basket,” this is Little Red Riding Hood turned upside-down! It’s equal parts Broadway musical, monster movie, Shakespeare, hiphop and olde-time radio show! Also funny are several goofy classroom book-reports- by kids with “agendas!”

33 kids from the area play all the parts, wearing crazy costumes, dancing, skipping, singing, and- yes- howling! It’s surprising and funny, from the chase scenes to the dance numbers. The young actors run on-and-off stage, changing costumes, while the audience wonders “How will the story go next?!”

Director: Steve Oz

A very special encore occurs this summer as the Know Obstacles Music Camp serving children and adults with special needs begins its second season at the Riverside Arts Center in Ypsilanti.

This popular interactive music camp expands its scope to include an art exhibit and a week-long performance festival. Musical Enrichment Specialists Steve Osburn, Ken Kozora, Kath Roos along with Eastern Michigan University Art Professor Matt O’Brien bring extensive experience to make the camp and events an enriching experience for all participants.

Each day staff from the local music community will lead the activities that include fun, structured jams focusing on vocals, instruments and drum circles. In the evenings, local artists will perform on stage with genres including rock, folk, jazz and a mixture of everything in between.

For camp participants, no musical background is required. Instruments are supplied, and parents and caregivers can participate. The camp also offers exposure to the Interactive Metronome, a training program that helps children and adults overcome problems with attention, memory and coordination.

The KO MusicArts Camp June 19-23 and the KO MusicArts Festival June 18-25 are exciting additions to the summer arts scene for the entire community!
