Spring into Creativity!

We wanted to update you on some highlights the Arts Center has been working on this week!

In the meantime, please stay safe, stay healthy, and feel free to keep us posted by email or social media to let us know how you're doing!

Fairy Tale Art Challenge

We invite you and your family to join us in our Fairy Tale Art Challenge!

First, select a fairy tale and read it with your family.

Then create a board of 3–6 tableau scenes — still images to represent the action — that tell the whole story using yourself and/or family members.

You can arrange all images in a 2x3 grid like a comic strip with captions. Use Word/Google Docs or similar program to achieve this and export the board as a PDF. Younger kids can send in the pics, with the order in the image title and we will arrange.

To submit entries, send your Fairy Tale story title and photographs to by Monday, May 18. Have fun!!

Virtual Play Club

The Arts Center’s second Virtual Play Club reading was held on a Zoom call on Wednesday evening this week, led by Resident Assistant Director Whitaker Gannon. The group met on May 6 to read Act Two of Agatha Christie’s Black Coffee, where the murder investigation really gets exciting and Poirot (Warren Kelley) works his magic!

Everyone was excited to revisit their roles this week, and are looking forward to Act 3 followed by a lively dicussion next week! Stay tuned for our next offering!

Show Mom You Care

It’s not easy to get out and shop this year for our Moms, so we have the solution and it’s a win-win!

Get her an online gift card for Mother’s Day! With contactless purchasing, they’re a safe way to show Mom you care.

September kicks off our 25th Anniversary Season of the Arts Center, and that is thanks to you and your ongoing patronage.

And, by purchasing a gift card, you’ll be ensuring the arts are alive and well when we’re ready to return to the theater.

A Chorus Line: Quarantine Edition

We all know and love this show! Cast members from the Broadway Revival (featuring our own Kim Shriver and other familiar faces) recreate the opening combo from their homes and the result is brilliant!

Fun fact: other countries have followed suit with their own versions after the original (shown here) including Italy and the U.K.

Ta-Da! We Have a New Website!

We are thrilled to raise the curtain on a new website experience!

It’s evident the arts are vital to our lives — especially now — as a way to broaden our experiences, enrich our lives, and remain connected. Please stay tuned as we continue to expand our virtual arts community until we’re together again.
