Neighborhood Theatre Group in Ypsilanti to present "Dispatches from the Dumb Decade" June 2-4

Lots of great things are happening in Ypsilanti including Neighborhood Theatre Group! In fact, NTG will be performing their second full length original  musical "Dispatches from the Dumb Decade"  June 2-4 at the fabulous Bona Sera Underground. Neighborhood Theatre Group is made up of local actors and musicians!

"Dispatches from the Dumb Decade" is a pop / rock musical that sounds extremely topical to me as the plot revolves around a student journalist at the beginning of the new millennium. By the way, the plot also consists of the start of a new president, war, and a new media. Ring any bells?

The workshop performance will feature Eric Hohnke, Tom Hett, Maegan Murphy, Alice Duhon, Aaron Dean, Marisa Linski, and Kristina Fitzgerald. Charles Worth is featured on piano. The musical is directed by Kristin Ann Danko.  Dispatches from the Dumd Decade is by local playwright A.M. Dean. Music is arranged by the NTG House Band.

The performance will be a Bona Sera Underground (200 W. Michigan Ave) in downtown Ypsilanti. Performance times are June 2 at 8 pm, June 3 at 2 pm and 8 pm, and June 4 at 2 pm. Tickets are $10 general/$5 students (with valid ID) and can be purchased at the door or online. The show is recommended for ages 13 and up.

Sounds like an awesome show to me!
