Darke County Center for the Arts will present AudioBody in an Arts In Education performance for junior high students on Wednesday, December 14 and Thursday, December 15 at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville. The second of DCCA's 2016-2017 season of Arts In Education programs which are presented free of charge to students in all grades of each local public school, AudioBody combines the performing arts with technology to create a unique show featuring music, comedy, and their own cutting-edge inventions. These performances are also open to the public.

“AudioBody will engage students in an interactive discussion about science and technology, giving some lucky youngsters the opportunity to actually come up on stage and play with the musical inventions featured in the performance,” explained DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “Although critical thinking and problem solving will be enhanced and education will take place, the audience will mostly know that they are having a really good time during this amazing performance,” Mr. Rawlins concluded.

DCCA's Arts In Education program is sponsored by DP&L Company Foundation, Greenville Federal, Maid Rite Sandwich Shoppe, Edison State Community College, The Mandy Green Fund of the Darke County Foundation, The Helen Hawkey Music Project, Richard Baker, BASF, and Littman-Thomas Agency. Additionally, the Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. The A.I.E. Program is also funded by DCCA memberships and local schools. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation and Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.

AudioBody will also perform for the general public in a DCCA Coffeehouse Series presentation at St. Clair Memorial Hall on Thursday, December 15 at 7 p.m. Tickets for this show featuring a synthesis of comedy, music, circus arts, and technology cost $10 and can be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or or purchased online at as well as at the door prior to the performance.
