KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Coming up at the Civic Theater in Kalamazoo, it's a production put on by area young people. The Civic Theater's Ben Zylman says that The Magical Adventures of Merlin will begin on May ninth, and run through the 17th. The show features both the young and more experienced being paired together.
"We're very excited about this show," Zylman told WKZO. "It's the Kalamazoo premiere, and it is a musical adaptation. It was written by the same folks who did Sleepy Hollow: A Musical Tale, which we presented a few years ago. The cast is about 20 students from the local area, and of course, our production crews."
Zylman says the good thing about this show is that it gives local young people a chance to work with professional production staff. The play is about a young Merlin who wants to get out of doing chores to practice more magic. Tickets are available at KazooCivic.com .
