Darke County Civic Theater to perform at Annie Oakley Festival

Darke County Civic Theater has been a community staple at the annual Annie Oakley Festival for many years. This year is no different, as DCCT will perform a classic old time melodrama once again. Melodramas have become very popular at the festival and many community members look forward to seeing this spectacular performance every year. This years melodrama selection is entitled “D.K. Molar, The Devious Dentist…Or…There’s gold in them Thar’ Teeth” by: Billy St John.

The depraved dentist, D.K. Molar (Mike Hamilton) and his noxious nurse, Nova Caine (Karen Hamilton) have crafted a dastardly scam: after putting their patients to sleep with nitrous oxide, they remove the gold crowns and replace them with fakes made of fool’s gold. The unsuspecting patients are none the wiser. That is until Dr. Molar’s new receptionist, the lovely Flossy Dailey (Christy Forthofer) starts chewing over some of the strange happenings in the office. With Phil de Tooth (Daniel Heymeyer) an upstanding young dentist, they discover Molar is prospecting for more than overbites. It’s guaranteed to be the most enjoyable visit to the dentist you have ever had! This performance features local residents performing a variety of entertaining characters. Also featured in the cast are Sandy Hartley and Jessica Setser. Dane Leeper has the responsibility of director for this production, along with his daughter Olivia Leeper, who will be running the lights and sound for the performances. Performances will take place at York Woods Friday July 28th at 7:00 p.m., Saturday July 29th at 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. and Sunday July 30th at 1:00 p.m.

All performances are free to attend and will take place under the melodrama tent. Bring your friends and family and get ready to boo, hiss, laugh, clap, cheer and “aww” with us under the melodrama tent!
