Darke County Center for the Arts Family Theatre Series presents Theatreworks USA's production of SEUSSICAL, Sunday, January 26, at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville.

Darke County Center for the Arts will open their 2013-14 Family Theatre Series at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on January 26 with Theatreworks USA's production of Seussical, a musical based on the beloved works of Dr. Seuss. “This delightful musical will thrill youngsters and charm adults,” said DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan. “The production is Theatreworks' biggest show ever, and plays much larger venues at much higher prices; DCCA is proud and excited to be presenting Seussical at our regular low ticket price of $5,” Mrs. Jordan stated. The show starts at 2 p.m.

Adapted for young audiences from the original Broadway version by the show's creators, Seussical is recommended for ages 4 and up. Popular Seuss creation “The Cat in the Hat” plays host and emcee as the show moves through several well-known stories. Horton hears a cry for help coming from a small speck of dust, and audiences follow the exploits of the sweet, good-natured elephant as he works to rescue what turns out to be the entire population of Who-ville. Several other Dr. Seuss classic characters become intertwined in this incredibly crazy-quilt adventure as imaginative complications arise.

DCCA's Family Theatre Series is sponsored by Dayton Power and Light Company Foundation, Second National Bank, Greenville Federal, Darke Rural Electric Trust, Edison Community College, The Andersons Inc., Dr. Doug Gordon, Jordan Insurance Agency, Wayne Healthcare, Greenville Kiwanis Club, Greenville Rotary Club, and Dan and Marty Schipfer. Additionally, support for Family Theatre is received from Ketrow Foundation, Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust, Jean Louise Thieme Fund of the Hope Foundation, and the Greyson James Steyer Fund. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial and the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency that supports public programs in the arts.
