Presenting the Creative Youth Center’s Characters that Lived Encore, an all-ages improv comedy show written by Grand Rapids students and performed by professional adult actors.

The show is a spin-off of last October’s production, where audience members met characters like Cimeon the good pirate, a cake-baking Parisian named Sophie, and Bow–as in, a hair bow–with a pet broom named Hop Lollypop. Come meet a new set of characters and see what your fellow participants–or maybe YOU!–contribute to the actors’ prompts as they take the hilarity to the next level.










About Creative Youth Center:

The Creative Youth Center (CYC) prepares kids for life’s adventures by supporting their writing and amplifying their voices. We believe that while nurturing kids’ writing can give them access to the world, fostering their creativity may allow them to change the world.

At the CYC, kids become published authors, leading to a strong sense of identity and an enthusiasm for learning. Our programs are free for all students attending Grand Rapids Public Schools.
