Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the floor and one to the ceiling by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.
Avon Players has been a cultural and civic mainstay of the City of Rochester Hills before it was even known as City of Rochester Hills. Founded in what was then known as the Avon Township, the non-profit theater group has spread its contagious "Let's put on a show!" spirit throughout Southeast Michigan since 1947. With a wealth of local talent onstage and behind the scenes, Avon Players mount an average of five elaborately produced shows a year, all featuring special effects, live orchestras, lavish sets, and dazzling lighting. In addition to entertaining the community with a variety of Broadway musicals, British comedies, and award-winning dramas, the Players also mount youth theater productions, which teach budding thespians the craft and how to cook thrown tomatoes into a mean marinara sauce.
As part of Meadow Brook Theatre's fourth annual children's series, the World Music Tour with Guy Louis embarks on a high-energy waltz around the globe. Without leaving the intimate, 500-seat theater, music fans journey from continent to continent alongside riff guru Guy Louis, whose instrumental prowess and vast knowledge of foreign tax codes help celebrate a variety of worldly cultures. Fast fretting draws out the differences and shared traits between European lutes, Indian sitars and tambouras, and modern electric guitars, and infectious beats take over in explorations of Native American and African percussion. Louis' animated performing style pulls young audiences into the action and motivates even the most bashful shadows to twist and shout.
