Thomas and Friends Live! stars the beloved characters of Thomas, Percy, Diesel, and all their friends in a fun-filled theatrical extravaganza. The latest production, Thomas Saves the Day, follows the gaggle of anthropomorphic trains as they prepare for the annual Magic Lantern Festival on the island of Sodor. As the engines work together to repair the lighthouse that guides visitors to the island, children will learn important lessons in discovery, friendship, cooperation, and how to slip loose from a giant octopus while scuba diving. The 90-minute musical's brand-new songs will have tots clamoring in adulation for an encore and throwing gummy bears onto the stage, the highest form of pre-K praise.

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.
