Darke County Center for the Arts recognizes Gordon Orthodontics for their support of the 2015-2016 Voices Season and thanks Dr. Doug Gordon for being an outstanding voice for the arts in our community. “We are touched by Dr. Doug Gordon’s commitment to enhancing the quality of life for children in our community both in his orthodontics practice and by helping provide opportunities for youngsters to learn and grow through the arts,” stated DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan. Dr. Gordon and Gordon Orthodontics have been long time supporters of DCCA’s Family theatre Series and this season will also be helping DCCA to present the a cappella group VoicePlay as part of the Artists Series and Arts in Education Outreach for local public High School Students.

Family Theater Series programs are presented at St. Clair Memorial Hall. Programs are generally based on children’s literature; ticket prices are just $5. Through Arts In Education, and in conjunction with local schools, performing artists are annually taken to each grade of every public school in Darke County, ensuring that children in the community have the opportunity to learn and grow through the arts. “Gordon Orthodontic’s support of children’s programming makes it possible for us to present professional Family Theatre Series programs at an affordable ticket price, and enables all Darke County public school students to experience a culturally enriching artistic program each year,” stated Andrea Jordan, DCCA Executive Director.

DCCA’s 2015/2016 Family Theatre Series includes three performances - Theatreworks USA presented The Lightning Thief on October 4th; ArtsPower will present a colorful musical production of the storybook favorite Madeline & the Bad Hat on November 15th; Lightwire Theater returns to Darke County with a cosmic adventure of their latest electroluminescent puppetry production Moon Mouse A Space Odyssey on April 3, 2016.

DCCA’s 2015-2016 Artist Series continues with VoicePlay in concert at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, January 23. VoicePlay began as a street corner barbershop act before evolving into an internationally acclaimed touring sensation. The group takes the timeless sound of vocal music, and turns it into an amazing stage show, moving between eras and styles and incorporating hilarious on-stage theatrics, ultimately producing the orchestrated sound of an entire musical using nothing but the human voice. Fans of pop, rock, doo-wop, rhythm and blues, and jazz are all drawn to contemporary a cappella groups; a cappella music has officially hit the mainstream, and is popular with listeners of all ages. Curtain time for the show is 8 p.m.

Tickets for the January 23 show by VoicePlay cost $20 and student tickets are $10. Tickets can be purchased through the DCCA office (937) 547-0908, located within Greenville Public Library, as well as online at If any remain by show time, tickets will also be available at the door prior to the performance.
