Following a solid first season of presenting quality entertainment for the younger members of the Danville Community, the Pre-School Performance series returned for the Fall/Winter season. In late September the season got off to a great start with the charm and wit of Singer/Storyteller Kirk Waller.
The Town of Danville's Recreation Services Department works tirelessly to provide access to the arts to all levels of the community, and by instituting the Pre-School Performance series, the Town was able to reach out to our youth. The series brings in acts of varying media, from musical jamborees to bubble magic. The shows are meant to entertain and educate the youngsters, as well as open up an entire world of artistic expression to them.
The new season picks up where the last left off, with music and magic the the Town's children. Following Waller's mesmerizing performance, the Village Theatre Art Gallery next plays host to Singer/Songwriter Tim Cain on Oct. 29. At the 10:00 a.m. show, Cain will lead the audience through a rollicking sing-a-long. Other shows to come over the next few months include:
* Nov. 19, 2010 Boswick the Clown and his Circus of Fun
