Young Audiences of Southeast Texas and the Vidor Business Network (BVN) are sponsoring a free program at the Vidor High School Auditorium Nov. 29. The “Really Big Show” will feature Robert Kikuchi-Yngojo’s “Asia Fanstasia,” “The New Little Red Riding Hood” by Storybook Theater, and the Grammy-winning Mr. Blue Shoes.

Kikuchi-Yngojo will weave magical tales of Southeast Asia and perform with unique musical instruments to mesmerize the crowd.

According to his website, Mr. Blue Shoes is the brainchild of Michael Dyson, producer, youth entertainer, guitarist and performer. Dyson co-founded The Blue Shoes Project, a nonprofit dedicated to introducing young audiences to living blues legends. To date, the award-winning Dyson has shared his unique version of the blues story with over 240,000 children.

The event is open to the public, and door prizes will be awarded. Door open at 6 p.m., and seating is limited so arrive early to make sure you get seats. The program starts at 6 p.m. The Vidor High School Auditorium is inside the high school at 500 Orange St. in Vidor.

Vidor City Manager Mike Kunst invites visitors to have dinner in town before going to the show.

“This is going to be a fun event,” he said.

The Vidor Business Network includes Comtex Wireless, Nellie’s Cottage, Cathy Cook Jewelry, Roberts and Leblanc Tax Professionals, Remax, Open Mortgage, Keffer’s Photography, Heart of Texas, HHGC Elite Gymnastics Center, I-Salon, Skatetown, Trophy Wives Boutique and the City of Vidor.
