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

According to Jordan, 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 seasoned theatergoers who enjoy the shows’ strong depiction of traditional values.

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.

American Family Theater’s adaptation from the original story, follows the plot of the traditional fairy tale, but adds delightful comic situations and surprises. Featuring the music and lyrics of Don Kersey & Jimmy Hammer, the production creatively illustrates that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that true goodness is found only in a loving heart.

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 or by phone. Additionally, tickets will be sold at the door the day of the show. For more information, contact DCCA at 937-547-0908 or visit www.centerforarts.net.
