YSKP to visit feisty bayou people

YS Kids Playhouse presents two weeks of  "Fais Do-Do!"

In 2013 the YS Kids Playhouse, a youth theater in Yellow Springs, will revisit one of its most popular and inspirational musicals. Gaston Boudreaux – the Cajun Robin Hood resets the classic story of have and have-nots in the bayous of Louisiana.

The evening is a family event with an all-youth cast who portray feisty bayou people, colorful politicians and a chorus of dancing oysters and crawfish. Beneath the lively story, however, the production poses important environmental as it develops a future generation of environmental stewards.

The Tecumseh Land Trust and the Miami Conservancy are partners in the current production whose theme “Taking care of the place you live is food for the soul”.

This original work features classic Cajun and zydeco music as it entertains, provokes and inspires in a magical tale of human ingenuity in concert with awe of the natural world.

The production features live music and takes place under the stars in the Antioch Amphitheater.
