Festival Playhouse Newsletter- Week 9 SP’21

Are you thinking about the end of the school year yet? Wrap up those papers and finish up those projects- you’re in the home stretch because it’s the end of WEEK 9 y’all!

Before we get down to all the amazing things happening this weekend and upcoming week, I want to give a big warm hearty CONGRATULATIONS to the cast and crew of Water by the Spoonful led by guest director, Bianca Washington who wrapped up their beautiful and emotionally powerful show this past weekend. It was a delight to see this Pulitzer Prize winning work brought to life onstage.

Graphic Design team met this week to work on poster designs for next seasons shows and I can’t wait to see the new artwork by our talented team: Chris Diaz ’21, Angela Mammel ’22, and Jorence Quiambao ’21!

Upcoming Events: 

Thursday, June 3 at 12:10pm, the Directing class is showcasing their work. Performances will be in the courtyard in front of the Playhouse. In the case of inclement weather, it will move into the Dungeon.


​More theatre going on, just down the road. Western Michigan University is doing outdoor performances of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee this weekend and A Midsummer Night’s Dream next weekend at the Richmond Center for Visual Arts Miller Fountain Plaza.

So much local art happening, set your calendars for June 4 &5! 

On Friday, June 4 6-8pm Art Hop happening in downtown Kalamazoo. There’s so much to see and do during Art Hop they developed an app. Download the Kalamazoo Art Hop app on your smartphone to get the full schedule or go to: https://kalamazooarthop.org/​. May I recommend a stop by our own, Jon Reeves at the Parks Trades Center to see his blacksmith talents in person?

June 4 and 5 is also Art on the Mall in downtown Kalamazoo, over 35 local and regional artistic booths to wander and shop and live performances as well. For more details go here: https://www.kalamazooarts.org/art-on-the-mall/

Everyone enjoy this last (upcoming week) week of classes before finals and the end of the school year!
