Bring your dancing shoes to the Franke Center Downstage Club on Saturday, June 3, for a fun night of Rock/Funk music with Lansing’s four piece band Big Willy. Doors will open at 7:00 PM with music by Marshall’s own band ¾ Lb. Cut (Adrian Bagale, Kjell Croce, Joni Bagale), followed by Big Willy at 8:00 PM.
A cherished part of the mid Michigan music scene, Big Willy is a one of a kind group that hails from Lansing. Their unique sound brings a high energy experience to every audience, featuring a blend of Rock and Roll, Funk, and classic Soul, intermixed with their own original compositions. The band includes leader Will “Big Willy” Rideoutt on guitar and vocals, Will “Super Size” Metz on Tenor Sax, Eric Payne on drums, and Mike Smalley on Bass. The band has shared the stage with any number of big acts, and appeared on WKAR TV’s show Backstage Pass in 2012. No matter what your musical taste, Big Willy has something for you to get excited about! Whether you want to listen to excellent musicianship, or just want to let your hair down and dance, Big Willy fits the bill!TICKETS
June 19th – June 30th, 2016, The Franke Center for the Arts will host a two-week theater camp that will focus on writing, performance, improv, and imagination. The workshops are designed for students that have completed kindergarten through those who have completed 10th grade. There is a 20 student limit per workshop.
In age-based groups, kids will spend the first week developing plays or musicals through improv games, collaboration and writing exercises.

Dan Kitrosser, a youth favorite from last year, will facilitate the workshops.
