FLINT—Flint Youth Theatre presents Balloonacy by Barry Kornhauser. Performances begin Friday January 26 and run through Sunday January 28.

Balloonacy is a wordless play starring one actor and a balloon. A tender, uplifting show for the little ones (and the big ones too). Sweet, inventive and packed with physical comedy, this play explores the power of friendship and shows how, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere.

Balloonacy stars Paul Manganello and is directed by Kathryn Walsh. The show features original music by Conor Keelan performed live by musician Aaron Weeks. The production team includes scenic and lighting design by Gene Oliver, costume design by Kendra Babcock, assistant scenic designer/balloon pouppeteer: Jewel Brown. The stage manager is Dominique Hinde.

FYT Producing Artistic Director Michael Lluberes calls the show “Hilarious and heart-warming. This sweet show is a gem – like a great silent film comedy on stage. It’s perfect for ages two to one hundred and two.”

Tickets are now on sale. Performances are: Friday January 26 at 7:00pm, Saturday January 27 at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm and Sunday January 28 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased by calling 810-237-7333 or online at www.TheFYT.org.
