The Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund has recently awarded funds to Darke County Center for the Arts to support the Family Theater Series and Arts in Education programs. According to a DCCA representative, DCCA presents and promotes performing and fine arts, encouraging cultural enrichment in the community. DCCA is also committed to the preservation of Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall as an important cultural center.

DCCA presents three shows annually in the Family Theatre Series; these programs are generally based on children’s literature. The next performance in this series, HOUSE AT POOH CORNER, will be presented by Theatre IV on Sunday, March 25, 2012, 2:00 P.M. at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville.

The Arts in Education program takes professional performing artists to every grade level in all Darke County and Greenville City schools. Artists are escorted to schools by volunteers during a week long residency, generally performing twice a day, with the exception of the Jr. High school artists who usually present at St. Clair Memorial Hall with students being transported from the schools. DCCA works in close cooperation with the Darke County Office of Education to choose presentations appropriate for grade levels and coordinate performance schedules with schools.

According to Executive Director Julie Strait, Darke County Center for the Arts is grateful for the generous and loyal support received from the Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust, enabling DCCA to provide programs that inspire creativity, educate, and entertain the children and youth of our community. For more information regarding these programs, contact Julie Strait at DCCA by telephone at 937-547-0908 or e-mail at .
