Flint Youth Theatre to Present ‘Bud, Not Buddy’ This Weekend


The Flint Youth Theatre will present a story of hope as it brings “Bud, Not Buddy” to the stage this weekend.

The scene is 1936, and 10-year-old Bud Caldwell has been in and out of foster homes since his mother died four years ago. With nothing but a bag full of rocks and a heart full of hope, he sets out on a journey to find his true home.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday (March 6-7) and 2:30 p.m. Sunday (March 8) at Elgood Theater, 1220 E. Kearsley St, Flint.

This performance is recommended for ages 8 and older. A conversation with the creative team will follow Friday’s performance. Learn more here.

This weekend: The Flint Youth Theatre presents “To Kill a Mockingbird”

Get out on the town this weekend and support your local youth theatre as they present “To Kill a Mockingbird” on stage at Elgood Theater.

Set in Alabama in 1935, this play traces a girl’s coming-of-age experiences during a very confusing time in our country’s history. As her father defends a black man on trial for an unspeakable crime, this young girl (known as Scout) must form her own conclusions about right and wrong.

Performances will be held at the Elgood Theater tonight, at 7:30, and on Saturday at 2:30 and 7:30. For tickets call 237-1530.

I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.  It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.  You rarely win, but sometimes you do.” TKAM
