YSKP show a dazzling desert display

While the Yellow Springs Kids Playhouse summer musical, “The Conference of the Birds” doesn’t open until Thursday, July 8, the News got a sneak peak during rehearsal last Thursday.

Watch an audio slideshow, featuring the sounds and stagings of the cast, below, and see next week’s print edition of the Yellow Springs News for a full article on the latest production in YSKP’s 16th season of youth theater.

The script for “The Conference of Birds,” which was adapted by Director John Fleming, is based on a 12th Century Sufi fable by Farid ud-Din Attar. With original music, stunning visual displays, and puppets aplenty, this year’s production is sure to please audiences.

Performances run from Thursday, July 8, to Sunday, July 11, and from Thursday, July 15, to Sunday, July 18. All shows start at 7:30 p.m. at the Antioch Amphitheater.
