Farmers Alley Theatre

If you don’t attend a wedding in June or even if you do, I have good news. The musical “It Shoulda Been You” at Farmers Alley Theatre offers a stylish comic spin on nuptials that will be unlike any ceremony you could witness or imagine. 


If I say the phrase “folk tales” you might think of "The Three Little Pigs" or "Hansel and Gretel." Those are great stories from Western cultures - countries like England and Germany - but there are so many more folk tales that you haven’t heard.

It can be hard enough to portray real animals on stage. But how do you bring a creature to life that doesn’t exist? This weekend is the world premiere of Western Michigan University’s original play Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher. The play runs for two weekends, March 10-19.

The internet allows people to connect who never would have met each other before. People who live in opposite corners of the globe, from different backgrounds and cultures. The Pulitzer-Prize winning play Water By The Spoonful by Quiara Alegría Hudes explores human connections on and offline. Western Michigan University will perform Water By The Spoonful February 10th through February 19th.
