Motor City Youth Theatre Bard Bums spend 100 hours studying full Shakespeare plays before performing them. This year's production was Romeo and Juliet Meet the Hatfields and the McCoys.

It was so much fun that we plan to produce it again. This time we'll add more of the Hatfield's and McCoy's story!

MCYT Bard Bums will be re-working this playful and sometimes tragic production that reveals interesting parallels between the four feuding families. More Hatfields and McCoys, and less Romeo and Juliet back stories. More fun for everyone!

Watch  for us in the spring/summer of 2019
Tickets will be available at the door and at EVENTBRITE (with additional fee).

Everybody loves the international bestseller and award-winning book, The Rainbow Fish, with its wonderful message of friendship and belonging.  This brand-new musical features a variety of charming school and sea-creature characters who admire the famous Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in all the ocean.  When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his/her vibrant, shimmering scales, unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps the young fish learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.  With a bubbly, energetic score and a script that invites wonderful creativity and flexibility, the universal message at the heart of this one-of-a-kind musical becomes much more than just a simple children’s story.
