Chinese Spring Festival Dancers

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill March Update

Television Legend Ed Asner (Mary Tyler Moore Show and Disney’s Up) takes one on a comedic journey of pain, laughter, and anatomy-not necessarily in that order. It is a true story of Ed Weinberger’s Italian vacation that takes an unexpected turn. A turn that scares the life out of him and at the same time forces self-reflection and appreciation for what he has. This show not only tickles the funny bone, but creates awareness and pays tribute to those lost. A must-see for everyone coming to the Village Theater on March 10 at 7:30 p.m. VIP meet and greet tickets are also on sale now

The Chinese Festival Subcommittee of the Multicultural Committee is proud to present a Chinese Spring Festival on Saturday, March 17.  Enjoy a special evening of Folk, Modern, & Classical dances performed by Metro Detroit area dance schools, numerous vocal performances featuring solos, duets, and choirs, plus instrumental performances featuring ancient Chinese instruments: Pipa, Erhu, and Guzheng. Join us at when the doors open at 6 PM to enjoy cultural displays by local Chinese schools: PCCLC, MNCCS, and  Ann Hua School of Ann Arbor.  Mainstage performance will be begin at 7 p.m. 

The Second City Tour Company makes a popular return to continue its sold out record at The Village Theater on March 31. Edgy, thought-provoking and always spectacularly funny. The Second City is celebrating nearly six decades of producing cutting-edge revues and launching the careers of generation after generation of comedy’s best and brightest. 

Tickets for these events and more can be purchased at the door or in advance at www.cantonvillagetheater.org, by phone at 734/394-5300, or in person Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at The Village Theater, located at 50400 Cherry Hill Road, Canton, MI, 48187.
