The best children's shows place a high premium on audience interaction, unlike classical concerts or traffic court. Rustle up some kid-friendly fun with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two general admission tickets to the World Music Tour with Guy Louis at Meadow Brook Theatre in Rochester Hills on Saturday, January 21, at 1 p.m. (a $20 value).
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.
