Good day on this potentially rainy Friday.
Yesterday, Williamston Theatre opened "Chapatti," a tale of two lonely pet-lovers who form a new bond. The play runs until late June. Read more about the production in this City Pulse article by Eve Kucharski.
Greater Lansing’s youth theater talents are on full display today as All-of-us Express Children’s Theatre presents its second annual Young Playwrights Festival. The festival features three plays written by young playwrights. “A Life of Type,” by Audrey Tieman, follows a writer under the pressure of a tight deadline. “The Steinmetz Pink,” by Ava Brewer, is a mystery set in the 1920s about the search for a missing diamond. “The Elevator at the End of the World,” by Ellison Winterstein, tells the story of a man in purgatory who is confronted with temptations and moral dilemmas. The plays are performed by 29 local youths between the ages of 11 and 18. 7 p.m. $7 adults, $5 youth. Tickets can be purchased at the ELHCC front desk. Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Rd, East Lansing. (517) 319-6957, allofusexpress.org.
