Woodward Wonderland by Mosaic Youth Theatre in Detroit
Celebrate the spirit of the city this holiday season Dec. 9-11, 2011 with the fifth annual festive stage show that's musical fun for kids and families
What Detroiter doesn't remember skating in Campus Martius Park at the holidays or attending the cultural Noel Night celebration? What about watching your first America's Thanksgiving Day Parade live from Woodward Avenue – at home in your pj's?
Re-live all these magical holiday traditions with the Mosaic Youth Theater's Woodward Wonderland performance at the DIA. The play – running Dec. 9-11, 2011 – pays tribute to Detroit holidays with singing and dancing by over 100 of Detroit's finest young artists, representing over 50 middle and high schools in southeast Michigan.
The show shares whimsical holiday stories and classic Motown Christmas music, filling parents with nostalgic memories they can experience with their children. To add even more magic, the performance visits the 12th floor of the J.L. Hudson department store, famously known as "Toyland."
With this fifth annual presentation, the play is becoming a tradition of its own, bringing holiday warmth, cheer and generosity to the community. Mosaic Youth Theatre partners with Forgotten Harvest, a program that rescues surplus food for immediate delivery to emergency food providers around metro Detroit. These partners hope to raise awareness and funds to assist in feeding thousands of hungry local families this holiday season.
Don't miss out on a chance for the whole family to celebrate loving memories and make some new ones! Woodard Wonderland takes place at the Detroit Film Theatre inside the DIA. It shows at 8 p.m. Dec. 9 and 10, as well as 4 p.m. Dec. 11. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $12 for students and seniors. Children under 5 are not admitted to the performance.
