Wayne Hospital’s recent donation to Darke County Center for the Arts will sponsor the local arts council’s Family Theatre Series. “Wayne Hospital has been a wonderful supporter of the arts for children and families in our community for many years; we greatly appreciate their sponsorship which enables DCCA to bring professional theatre groups to St. Clair Memorial Hall at an affordable ticket cost,” said DCCA Director Julie Strait.

According to Strait, the goal of DCCA’s Family Theatre Series is to encourage cultural enrichment in our community, inspiring the imaginations of the young and young at heart, and encouraging the expression of creativity. The series attracts a wide-ranging audience that includes many preschool children enjoying their first theater experience, as well as senior citizens who enjoy the shows’ strong depiction of traditional values.

Performance times are scheduled to fit conveniently into most schedules at 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoons. Most of the productions are original musicals based on popular tales adapted from current and classic children’s literature.

This season’s Family Theatre Series will open December 2 with TheatreworksUSA’s presentation of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie and other storybooks. Imaginative adaptations of Guess How Much I Love You and I Love My Little Storybook will be presented by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia on Janaury 27, 2013. American Family Theater’s musical rendition of Sleeping Beauty will end the series on April 24, 2013.

Tickets to the series, including all three shows, are only $12. Individual performances are $5 per ticket; all seats are general admission. Tickets are available at the DCCA office located on the third floor of the Greenville Public Library, by calling DCCA at (937) 547-0908 or online at
