Darke County Center for the Arts Riders in the Sky Salute to
Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys audience members will be given
the opportunity to own a very special memento of that performance,
with a silent auction for a  Riders In The Sky poster size framed
and signed show print.
When Darke County Center for the Arts presents Riders in the Sky performing their Salute to Roy Rogers, King of the Cowboys, at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, November 12, audience members will be given the opportunity to own a very special memento of that performance which begins at 8 p.m. “Our poster promoting the show has earned so many requests from fans hoping to buy it that we decided to give all those attending the show the opportunity to take it home with them,” explained Andrea Jordan, Executive Director of DCCA. A silent auction will be held, with bids taken prior to the show and continuing through intermission. The highest bidder will be announced and awarded the framed and signed print at the end of the concert.

“We first displayed this poster in our booth at the Great Darke County Fair, and were inundated with offers to buy it on the spot; subsequently we have had further inquiries from a large number of people, but we needed to keep it to promote the show,” Ms. Jordan stated. However, after the performance, and after Ranger Doug, Too Slim, Woody Paul, and Joey the CowPolka King have added their signatures, the large and colorful framed picture will have served its initial purpose and can move to a new home; auction proceeds will provide additional funds supporting DCCA's programs and services.

In addition to the tribute to Roy Rogers, Riders In the Sky will present “Round Up at Kids Corral” for youngsters and their families in a 2 p.m. matinee performance on Sunday, November 13. “Little cowpokes” will hear the Riders' award-winning music from Toy Story 2 and Monsters Inc., and be treated to the quartet's unique brand of wholesome humor featuring audience participation as well as rope tricks. Tickets for the Sunday matinee are $10, and can be purchased by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908,, or on-line at

Additionally, a few seats are available for the Salute to Roy Rogers; those tickets cost $30 and can also be obtained by contacting DCCA. If any remain by showtime, tickets will be sold at the door for both shows.
