February can be a pretty dull month, there isn’t usually a whole lot going on, but fortunately for you, Darke County Civic Theater and Darke County Humane Society have teamed up to bring a hint of summer fun to February! They will be hosting “Wild West Family Fun Day” on Saturday, February 28th, at Paws Bingo Hall in Greenville. This will be a fun event for the whole family! Be sure to come out in your best western attire and enjoy family friendly games, a western themed costume contest, and of course, an old time melodrama! That’s right, The Darke County Civic Theater is proud to present “Dogsbreath Devereaux: The Dastardly Doctor!” How often do you get to see an old time melodrama in the winter?!

All the proceeds of the event will benefit both Darke County Civic Theater and Darke County Humane Society. Tickets are on sale at Roots Hair Salon on Broadway and Paws Bingo Hall. Of course, you can always purchase tickets at the door as well! Adults are $5 and K-12 students and senior citizens are $3. Children’s games will start at 4pm and game tickets are available at the event, plus sandwiches, snacks and drinks will be available for purchase as well. Remember, your admission includes a fun filled melodrama, that will begin at 6:00 PM. It will be your job to boo the villain and cheer for the hero as Dogsbreath Devereaux, plots to wed and do away with the wealthy widow Lotta Cash so he can inherit her fortune and her late husband’s medical clinic. He enlists the aid of the nasty nurse, Hilda Hatchet, and promises to marry her once he disposes of Lotta. Problems arise when the insanely jealous Hilda catches Dogsbreath flirting with Wendy March, the heroine of our show. It seems only our hero, Dr. Phil Good, can save Wendy and the unsuspecting Lotta Cash from certain death. Set in a clinic filled with zany patients, this melodrama is sure to leave your whole family stitches. Mark your calendar and enjoy a bit of summer fun while benefiting local organizations!
