Vamps are cool, but a bunny vamp jonesing for veggies is cooler. Children will be amazed as stories come to life in a variety of engaging performances at the Michigan Theater. The return of the Not Just for Kids (NJFK) series kicked off Sunday, September 30 with Bunnicula and runs through April 2013. Live performances are aimed at entertaining young children and families. Take your mud-pie-maker to see Harry the Dirty Dog Sunday, November 11, a delightful story about a dog that hates to take baths and gets so dirty that his family doesn’t recognize him. If you have a little explorer, they’ll enjoy following a search for clues in Mysteries of Ancient Egypt Sunday, February 3, 2013. Meet a much-loved talking dog as she goes on a “doggone funny adventure” in Martha Speaks, Sunday, March 10, 2013. The final NJFK performance is Seussical on Sunday, April 28, 2013, when Dr. Seuss’s best-loved stories collide in an unforgettable musical caper!
