directed by Mike McGettigan
asst. directed by Kyle O'Neil & Audra Jantz
featuring Nick Crestwood, Adam Hirtzel, Ellie Warner, & Patty Rooney 

Follow the life of the Baby New Year.! A baby born on the first moment of the new year who ages to a hundred years old in just one year as he finds love and fights against a system of holiday oppression in this game-paced comedy tradition from the Ant.


ACT TWO: Bringing Up Baby New Year 2: New Year's 'EVE' 

written by Shawn HandlonMike McGettiganDave Davies
directed by Shawn Handlon
featuring Willie Burton III, Alexandra Golden, Andy Reid, & Jackie Strez

While Bringing Up Baby New Year chronicles the life and often tumultuous times of a typical Baby New Year, this new sequel to the popular 2014 holiday comedy explores the impacts on society and bureaucracy in the wake of an atypical Baby New Year.

Trembling Earth

Fernwhale

Anne Erlewine

bar opens 7p | doors 8p | music 9p

Planet Ant artist community presents Trembling Earth at Ghost Light on Saturday December 15th! Founded in Athens, GA, the all original psychedelic rock n roll and blues band, delivers its own unique sound that draws influence from the classic funkiness of David Byrne, the grunge of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the delicate lyrics of Paul Simon, the indie rock sensibility of Built to Spill, and the psychedelic colours of Syd Barrett, mixed in with a hard driving Mississippi delta blues sound. Somehow with all these elements combined, Trembling Earth still has a little of that Athens, GA vibe of Love Tractor, Guided by Voices, and Vic Chesnutt, and gets the room up and dancing. Trembling Earth has shared the stage with Daniel Hutchens (Widespread Panic), Muruga Booker (Jerry Garcia Rain Forest Band, P-Funk All Stars), Hope For a Golden Summer, Mr. Blotto, Covert Ops, UV Hippo, and many more. 

FernWhale, Northville based band fronted by vocalist Angela Shepard delivers a original quarky pop rock songs mixed with classic underground rock sensibility. She is joined by members of the amazing Northville Winery Grateful Dead Cover Band, which makes for a very eclectic mix of music.

Anne Erlewine debuts songs from her new album with her new band. This Ypsilanti songwriter delivers volumes of original tunes with deep and poignant lyrics, haunting waltzes, and brilliant writing.

Detroit's PuppetART Theatre: Audra Kubat & Kolobok

Sunday | December 9 | Ant Hall | 3p

For one afternoon only on our lil' Corner of Caniff, a portal of puppets & music will appear and for a short time all can become a kid again at a fantastical sort of storytelling event!

Detroit's PuppetART Theatre & Planet Ant present:

Audra Kubat & KOLOBOK
"A fundraiser of fairytale proportions"


This special event is an exclusive fundraiser for the Chalfonte Foundation and will feature a light-hearted children’s music program by folk artist Audra Kubat followed by the puppet show “Kolobok” presented by Detroit’s PuppetART Theatre.

Founded in 1995, PuppetART offers a repertoire of eleven productions based on fairytales and folktales from around the world. Performances feature hand, rod, shadow, and string or marionette puppets all designed to incorporate the artistic traditions of the culture the source material is drawn from. Kolobok is the Russian version of the Gingerbread Man. In this colorful tale with a happy ending the fat little dumpling bun, made by an elderly couple with no children of their own, magically comes to life and runs away from his “parents” to explore the world. He meets others along the way who all want to eat him such as a big sleepy bear and a sly fox. A mixture of puppets and live actors, including actress Jaclyn Strez and actor Nicholas Pobutsky as forest creatures, Kolobok is a delight for all ages. For more about the world of puppets visit PuppetART’s website at https://www.puppetart.org/.

The kid’s music program by Audra Kubat comes from her interactive storytelling and songwriting workshops where kids can participate in creating the music. "It can be incredibly impactful for a child to find their creative voice. The moment when they hear their words reflected back in song, you understand that you have helped inspire a sense of accomplishment and creative wonder in them”, says Audra. Kubat’s music career spans more than two decades and encompasses teaching and songwriting to live performances locally and nationally. For more about Audra Kubat and her music visit her website at https://www.audrakubatmusic.com/

In the past the Foundation has held its annual event at the Bonstelle Theater during Wayne State University’s annual holiday production. “We love the Bonstelle and their productions,” says Aaron Timlin, the Foundation’s new Executive Director. “This year, with the help of some of our friends, we decided to do something different on our own. I’m happy to be working on this event for the Foundation with people and places I consider family, Audra, PuppetART and the Planet Ant.” 

All proceeds from the event support the Chalfonte Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. For nearly 20 years the Chalfonte Foundation has been providing support for special needs children and their families through cultural activities, kids camp camaraderie, financial aid, counsel and much more. The Foundation gives many of their tickets away each year to children and their families in need. “Of course we would like to realize a huge profit for the Foundation, but more important is to provide kids with a different experience in the performing arts”, says founder James L. Meyer. 

To purchase tickets for this event or sponsor a ticket to a “Chalfonte Kid” please send a check and self-addressed envelope to The Chalfonte Foundation 4600 Woodward Ave STE 308 Detroit MI 48201. Or visit our event page at https://chalfonte.brownpapertickets.com/

Pricing is as follows: Adults: $30.00; Youth & children: 5-18: $15.00; kids under 5: FREE; Sponsorship: $60.00 (sponsor 4 “Chalfonte Kids” to attend the event).
