DCCA Family Theatre Series presents FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS
Sunday, April 6 at 2 pm at St. Clair Memorial Hall.
Darke County Center for the Arts will close its Family Theatre Series season at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Sunday, April 6 by presenting Adventure Theatre MTC's production of Five Little Monkeys. Based on the popular books by Ellen Christelow, the play recounts the hilarious events ensuing when mischievous monkeys jump on a bed, go shopping, sit in a tree, and bake a birthday cake. “This highly entertaining, energetic and incredibly funny show will appeal to very young children as well as to everyone who has ever been a child,” said Keith Rawlins, DCCA Artistic Director. The show begins at 2 p.m.

According to Rawlins, Five Little Monkeys honors the experiences of both parents and children. “This zany play is a masterpiece of creativity, imaginatively bringing the books to life; every family can relate to the monkeys and their not-always-well-organized Mama,” Mr. Rawlins said.

DCCA's Family Theatre Series was established to provide culturally enriching shows for local families to enjoy at an accessible cost to those of all demographic levels.
