The goal of DCCA’s Family Theatre Series is to encourage cultural enrichment in our community, inspire the imaginations of the young and young at heart, and encourage the expression of creativity. The series attracts a wide-ranging audience that includes many preschool children enjoying their first theater experience, as well as senior citizens who enjoy the shows’ strong depiction of traditional values.
