Darke County Center for the Arts will present a unique blend of music, theatre, and comedy at The Bistro Off Broadway on Thursday, February 22 as part of their 2017-2018 Coffeehouse Series. The show entitled “6 Guitars” stars musician, singer, actor Chase Padgett who channels six different guitar players during his performance, each with a distinct voice and musical style. “This is a masterful tour de force performance that has earned numerous awards, rave reviews, and standing ovations all over the world,” DCCA Artistic Director said Keith Rawlins. “Chase Padgett convincingly creates unforgettable charismatic characters who share their stories and play their music; the show is hilarious, charming and sometimes surprisingly poignant, and can be enjoyed by fans of all music genres, be it blues, rock, jazz, classical, country and folk,” Rawlins concluded.

According to Mr. Rawlins, Chase Padgett created his one-man show in an attempt to combine all of the things he wanted to do—acting, music, and story-telling--while working at Orlando, Florida theme parks immediately after earning his college degree in arts and music. The resulting performance at the 2010 Orlando Fringe Festival was greeted with standing ovations and sold out houses, and the show has gone on to win the hearts of audiences across the globe.
