Edison Community College has donated funds to Darke County Center for the Arts’ Family Theatre Series and Arts In Education programs. “Edison Community College’s support of children’s programming makes it possible for us to present wonderful, creativity enhancing 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,” shared Andrea Jordan, DCCA Executive Director.

This season’s final Family Theatre Series performance, American Family Theatre’s musical rendition of Sleeping Beauty will be Sunday, April 14th at 2 pm. Due to the temporary closure of St. Clair Memorial Hall, the performance has been moved to the Versailles Performing Arts Center, inside the Versailles school.

Tickets for Sleeping Beauty are $5, and can be purchased at Readmore's Hallmark in downtown Greenville and Worch Memorial Public Library in Versailles, as well as at DCCA's office on the third floor of Greenville Public Library, and are available online at Additionally, tickets will be sold at the door the day of the show.

DCCA’s Arts In Education program annually takes professional performing artists to all grades of all Greenville City and Darke County schools. This season included Kid Power’s musical journey teaching K-3 students the value of nutrition in Operation Lunch Line; The Eisenhower Dance Ensemble’s Kid’s ‘n Motion inspired students in grades 4-6 to learn, create, and enjoy dance; TheatreWorksUSA’s Through the Eyes of a Friend which gave students in grades 7 & 8 a new perspective on the life of Anne Frank; and Freestyle Music Writing with Jonathan Kingham, who made song writing easy for high school students. Arts In Education programs are free of charge and are open to the public.
