The Renegade Theatre Festival will be back in Old Town Lansing for a ninth year this week. On Thursday through Saturday, there will be a variety of theatrical events in several Old Town locations, and a number of local theatre companies are again taking part.

Organizers Chad Badgero and Melissa Kaplan give us a preview of some of the events taking place this weekend. Chad is the founder and artistic director of the Peppermint Creek Theatre Company, and Melissa is the fine and performing arts coordinator at Lansing Community College. Together, they co-host a radio show called “So Much More” on LCC radio, WLNZ.
