Ways to Connect

Local, live theater is one of the many benefits of living in Washtenaw County. One local theater production infuses old time music with a classic story designed to make theater goers laugh with their production of "The Philadelphia Story."

High school students from across Washtenaw County are seeing the legal process in action when the Michigan Supreme Court hears a case in Ann Arbor Pioneer High School. 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry had a chance to speak about the event with  State Supreme Court Justice, Bridget Mary McCormack.
