It’s been called “children’s theater for adults” with topical themes, sophisticated humor, and clever songs. This year’s show, Superhuman Happiness, adapts the Greek myths of Ovid’s Metamorphosis to explore the role of change in kids’ lives today. The playhouse and artistic director John Fleming also face some major changes. Community Voices producer David Seitz has their story.</em></p><p></p> Sun, 06 Jul 2014 14:35:00 +0000 David Seitz 52278 at http://wyso.org Yellow Springs Kids Playhouse Celebrates 20th Anniversary, Embraces Change What Is The Economic Impact Of Street Fairs?
