Mid Michigan Family Theatre

Great Theatre Experiences for the Whole Family!     

            Mid Michigan Family Theatre to Present
          The Castaways directed by Nancy Sisson

Production dates – August 1 – 3 and 8 – 10, 2014. Show times 7:00 p.m. on Fridays and 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

The Castaways - a musical by Michael and Jill Gallina. Grounded in historical fact, the The Castaways' plot, delivered through flashbacks, reveals the struggles of immigrant children on the streets of New York City in the early 1900s. Ultimately the happy endings for these “castaways” take them to homes with Midwestern families. Their poignant stories sensitize today's children to the stark realities of homelessness.

Theatre Etiquette

Arrive early and take care of personal needs such as using the restroom and eating and drinking before the show.  People coming and going during performances may disturb the actors and the audience members. 

Please silence or turn off all electronic devices, including cell phones, beepers, and watch alarms.  The noise and light from your devices are distracting.

Please refrain from talking, making noise, or obstructing the view of others during performances.  Use common courtesy. 

If you require assistance during the show, please go to the nearest volunteer usher or lobby attendant. 

Please, no recording/taping/filming or flash photography during performances!

Due to royalty agreements, recording/taping/filming of our performances is prohibited.  Flash photography is distracting to the performers and other patrons and potentially dangerous to actors due to visual impairment from the flash. 

Please refrain from taking pictures during the performances unless you do so without the flash. 


Babies and Live Theater Don't Mix!


In consideration of our performers and patrons,we request that our youngest audience members be at least two years old.  Having infants and very young children in the audience creates issues that can seriously detract from the experience of others.


Unhappy little ones should be removed to the lobby.
