Darke County Center for the Arts
DP&L Foundation Sponsors Arts in Education, Family Theatre

The Dayton Power and Light Company Foundation has once again given a very generous donation to Darke County Center for the Arts in support of Family Theatre Series and Arts In Education programs.  According to DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan,  “DP&L Company Foundation’s support of children’s programming makes it possible for us to present wonderful, creativity enhancing Family Theatre Series programs at an affordable ticket price, and enables all Darke County public school students to experience a culturally enriching artistic program each year.”  Jordan continued, “DCCA thanks the Dayton Power and Light Company Foundation for their strong support of the arts; we are absolutely thrilled to see the children in our community receive the benefit of their generosity.” 
 
Upcoming Family Theatre Series shows include Theatreworks' production of E.B. White's treasured tale Charlotte's Web on February 18th; and Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia's production of the award winning classics Guess How Much I Love You and My Little Storybook on April 8th. The Series opened in December with a sold out performance of Lightwire Theatre's A Very Electric Christmas. All performances will be on Sundays starting at 2 pm, at St. Clair Memorial Hall. Thanks to continued community support, ticket prices have remained at $5 since the first Family Theatre Series performance in 1997.
 
Trough Arts In Education, and in conjunction with local schools, performing artists are taken to each grade of every public school in Darke County, ensuring that children in the community have the opportunity to learn and grow through the arts.  “DP&L Foundation's support of Arts In Education programming enables all Darke County public school students to experience a culturally enriching artistic program each year,” stated Andrea Jordan, DCCA Executive Director.
 
 DCCA Arts In Education programs for the 2017-2018 season include health and wellness enthusiast KID POWER (grades K-3) presenting "Operation Lunch Line" a 3D interactive production on nutrition and exercise. Two time Grammy award winner TERRANCE SIMIEN & The ZYDECO EXPEREINCE (grades 4-6) returns by popular demand to present “Creole for Kidz" sharing Creole music and culture. SIX APPEAL (grades 7 & 8) brings a capella with hands-on critical listening to St. Clair Memorial Hall, and SIX GUITARS (grades 9-12) presents the "Voices of Chase Padgett" portraying 6 different guitar playing characters, each presenting their own story and style of music.  Arts In Education artists are generally in residence for a week as they tour all of the eight public school districts in Darke County.  These programs are open to the public; contact the DCCA office for more information.
