GREENVILLE – Darke County Center for the Arts will open its Family Theatre Series season on Nov. 18 at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville with Playing By Air, a trio of artists in a comedic performance featuring juggling, music and circus.
According to DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, the show features an electrifying display of lights, color and motion featuring engaging characters and musical instruments that fly through the air.
“This imaginative theatrical experience is full of breathtaking feats, creative silly stuff and more,” Rawlins said. “Playing by Air’s contagious comedy and high energy performances are guaranteed to captivate audience members of all ages.”
The show starts at 2 p.m.
DCCA’s Family Theatre Series was inaugurated in 1997 to provide local youngsters and their parents the opportunity to experience the joy of theater at an accessible cost. Other productions in the 2018-19 season include Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s glowing production of “Rainbow Fish,” based on the classic children’s book, on Feb. 10, and on April 7 “Underneath a Magical Moon” from Tutti Fruitti Productions, a re-imagining of the Peter Pan tale as it would be told by Wendy. General admission tickets for each of the Family Theatre presentations cost $5; tickets for the entire season are available for $12.
Sponsors of DCCA’s Family Theatre Series are Dayton Power & Light Company Foundation, Second National Bank, Greenville Federal, James Steyer Fund of Darke County Foundation, Edison State Community College, Gordon Orthodontics, Jordan Insurance Agency, Wayne HealthCare, Greenville Rotary Club and Family Health. The series also receives support from the Jean Louise Thieme Fund of the Darke County Foundation and DCCA memberships.
