DCTís 25TH ANNIVERSARY BIRTHDAY PARTY
LIGHTING UP THE STAGE FOR 25 YEARS

May 15 - 16, 2009

Recommended for all ages

Dallas Childrenís Theater (DCT) presents a birthday bash on Saturday, May 16, 2009 from 10am Ė 2pm to celebrate 25 remarkable years of family theater in Dallas.  Rosewood Center for Family Arts will be open to the public and ablaze with creative projects, performance, cakewalks and fun for the whole community.  

Headlining the weekend are two special evening concert performances by Trout Fishing in America, the long-standing musical partnership of Keigh Grimwood and Ezra Idlet.  Their infectious mix of folk/pop and family music is tempered by the diverse influences of reggae, latin, blues, jazz and classical music.  Their recordings have garnered three National Indie Awards and multiple Parents Choice Gold and American Library Awards as well as 4 Grammy nominations.  

During the party on Saturday from 10am Ė 2pm, DCT will feature workshops, arts and crafts, puppet-making, door prizes, raffle items, performances by DCTís Teen Conservatory Improv troupe, food, cakewalks, and a special birthday cake-cutting ceremony.  Adding to the excitement will be a live radio remote with DCTís season sponsor, 103.7 lite fm.  Kids of all ages will be invited to commemorate DCTís silver anniversary by creating a painted tile to be permanently displayed at the Rosewood Center for Family Arts. Everyone is invited to explore the senses through hands-on arts activities coordinated by the Baker Idea Institute.  Members of Trout Fishing in America will present an exclusive song-writing workshop for grades 3 and up (seating limited). The birthday party is free to the public; however, certain events require reservations, a ticket price or a modest fee.
