This year marks the 20th anniversary of Yellow Springs Kids Playhouse. 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.
This week marks the inaugural performance of YSKP's original musical parody, Godzilla! Writer and director Corrie Van Ausdal visited the WYSO studios along with Blaze Wright, one of the performers and songwriters. Van Ausdal and Wright talked about the development of the production, and Wright shared one of the show's songs.
YSKP's production of Gozilla! is February 8-15th at the Glen Building in Yellow Springs. More details are available at yskp.org.
