This weekend Yellow Springs High School opens its fall play, ‘The Last Night of Ballyhoo.’
Three is the magic number for an upcoming collaborative concert of three ensembles. The local Chamber Orchestra and Community Chorus and a visiting piano trio, appropriately named Triple Helix, will perform three works over an evening.
When Center Stage closed its doors in 2003 after nearly 30 years of community theater performances, founder and director Jean Hooper predicted “someone else will step up…the theater will continue.
The Yellow Springs Arts Council hosted an audio/visual extravaganza last Saturday night called Synesthesia.

Guests are welcome to kick back and loosen their ties and their pocketbooks as YS Kids Playhouse takes them into the New York jazz scene of the 1920s Cotton Club.

At the YS Kids Playhouse gala on Saturday night at its new home on the Antioch College campus, the playhouse announced that it would indeed have a summer season this year.
