What to do on a blustery winter day if you are minding the children…

The Plymouth-Canton, Northville area has a lot to offer families, but it takes awhile for things to take hold around here.

One event that has is on its 2nd or 3rd year is the “Saturdays at the Penn” musical/variety shows at the historic PENN Theater on Kellogg Park in Downtown Plymouth.  Sponsored by the Plymouth-Canton Arts Council (PCAC), The Wilcox Foundation and some other sponsors who care about the arts, it is a great way to spend a couple of hours with the kids taking in some entertainment for all ages.  Many a child will be found dancing in the aisles or even getting called to participate on the stage.  Jugglers, children-oriented bands, magicians, classical Instrument Demos, and all kinds of acts have performed at this event.

This event was intended to act as an indoor continuation of the Concerts in the Park that happen throughout the summers on Wednesdays.  The next concert is on Saturday, February 5th.  Doors open at 11:05am and the show begins at 11:30am.  You can arrive late if you wish, as it is a casual atmosphere.  Tickets are $5 per person.  Also available for purchase are popcorn, candy and beverages.

The February 6th concert will be hosted by the ever-popular musician Guy Louis, with featured performances by funny-man juggler Joel Tacey and a special performance of Peter and the Wolf by members of the Celebration Youth Orchestra and Plymouth Uptown Players.

This is also a fun event for Brownie, Girl or Boy Scout Troops and Birthday Parties.  Call about group discounts!  For advance tickets, call 734-416-4278 or purchase tickets at the door.

Penn Saturdays: An Ideal Family Friendly Winter Music and Magic Event Series in Downtown Plymouth

If you and your family like to take in the Friday night concerts in the Park during the summer, here is a great option for the colder months. Very family friendly, these events occur once a month from October to March at Plymouth’s historic Penn Theater. There’s music, magic, and even juggling (today) to entertain both young and old. And there’s always plenty of popcorn to keep the kids busily munching away. The prices are very reasonable and a good time was had by all. We’ve even starting inviting our out of area friends to come in and enjoy it with us. For more information about Penn Saturdays – please visit their website at www.pennsaturdays.com.
