Each year, regional schools partner with the Community Arts Center to provide thousands of students the opportunity to experience live professional performances. These hand-picked programs align with the curriculum being taught in the classroom and provide students with opportunities they may not have access to otherwise. By collaborating with schools in our region, the Community Arts Center provides these children with fun scholastic outings that expand learning beyond the classroom.
In addition to the morning public school performances, select shows will be open to the public with evening performances. Tickets for these shows are on sale now, with every ticket costing only $5. Executive Director Jim Dougherty says “The Community Arts Center has a longstanding tradition of offering quality educational entertainment each year to participating schools via our Educational Series, but we felt that the community-at-large could benefit from these performances as well. Generous support from a variety of sources has allowed us to offer these evening shows at a significantly reduced ticket price to a wider audience, and we’re excited to do so.” This year’s evening performances include the following:

Mad River Theatre Works presents Freedom Flight
February 21 at 7:30 p.m.
The turbulent period of slavery and abolition in American history is the backdrop for Mad River’s one -act play with music, Freedom Flight. Centered around the telling of family history and the role of generational sharing in understanding, growth and self-worth, the play wrestles with the ongoing legacy of slavery and identity. When Evelyn, a descendant of Addison White, confronts her own difficulties with racism, an array of characters tell and relive their family history, illustrating the tension, drama, and the promise of deliverance from bigotry. Freedom Flight explores the unwritten roadmap between past and present, and the relationship between the things that we leave behind and those that carry us forward.
