It is Christmas Eve in Victorian London as DaySpring Arts and Education presents "A Christmas Carol" . With ghosts, goodwill, and redemption this well-known stage play presents a beautiful story of the true spirit of Christmas. You will go on a journey, along with Ebeneezer Scrooge, as he is visited by the nostalgic spirit of Christmas past, the humorous and poignant spirit of Christmas present, and the sobering and soaring spirit of Christmas future.  This show is full of endearing, familiar characters, splendid costumes and special effects that will make it a highlight of the Christmas season for you and your family.

In this spirit of giving freely, you are encouraged to bring food goods to Dayspring through the month of December, and to these performances, for Loaves and Fishes, a local homeless shelter.

Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates is an uplifting holiday celebration of family, generosity and an exhilarating tale of courage and determination that culminates with a spectacular speed skating race on St. Nicholas Day.
 
This modern interpretation has been adapted by House of Cards screenwriter Laura Eason. Set on the ice-covered canals of 19th century Holland, Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates is the story of siblings Hans and Gretel Brinker, who strive to provide for their family and prove their own worth by entering a local speed skating contest—first prize is a pair of gleaming silver skates. The original novel by Mary Mapes Dodge has been in consistent print since 1865, and introduced the sport of speed skating in the United States.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge – not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

In pursuit of a dream, not many people would choose to leave their job and their home. Sean Coray decided to take a life changing leap. “I gave up my apartment, everything…I have so much less, but I’m a lot happier,” Coray says. With every song, he’s confronting all the doubt faced from his self and distractors.

“Find a Way” is Sean Coray’s third EP, a follow up to his 2016 release “Encinitas”. While that EP served as a reawakening of his music career, “Find a Way” shows the progression that Coray has made as a songwriter and artist, and that he continues to press forward and chase his dreams.

“This was a challenging collection of songs to make; my team pushed me every day to step outside of my comfort zone; I believe I did that with ‘Find a Way’”, he said.

Mixing his personal life with his love of creative storytelling, Sean Coray’s new EP still draws influences from rock, folk, soul and pop. To help develop his unique sound, he packed a bag and drove south to music city.

Recorded at Deaf Dog Studios and Pentavarit in Nashville, Sean Coray worked with Nashville producer and singer-songwriter, Randall Kent. Randall Kent has been at the helm and collaborated on records by Matt Hires (Rock Ridge Music), WILD (Nettwerk), and Volunteer. As a result, Sean Coray put together a creative and memorable collection of songs.

“It’s about not giving up,” Coray said of his new EP. “We must continue to push forward and get to where we want to be in life. We have our good days, and we have our bad days. Those who never quit, ultimately find their peace.”

"Find a Way" is coming December 8, 2017.

THE SILVER CREEK BLUEGRASS BAND is a traditional 5-piece bluegrass band.

THE MATCHSELLERS is a Warsaw, Indiana native Andrew Morris and Julie Bates of Kansas City, Missouri. Their exciting, gritty, and often hilarious stage show has been developed over three years of relentless touring across the US and Europe. Though deeply rooted in bluegrass and old time tradition, the pair’s respective backgrounds in electric blues guitar and classical violin– as well as a penchant for the absurd– offer a refreshing point of view. The group has been featured on various NPR and international radio stations as well as blogs including The Bluegrass Situation, Dying For Bad Music and more

BONGOJAK VS. THE LOOP MACHINE
BongoJak vs The Loop Machine is based out of St. Louis, MO. with a sound that fits best in the reggae genre, BongoJak also taps into psychedelic/electronic/classic rock. He plays originals along with cover tunes with a BongoJak twist like Bob Marley, Sublime, The Who, Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, & many more! BongoJak uses a loop machine which is a recording device that allows you to take live created sounds and play it back over & over (in a loop). An example would be, he records a riff with his guitar then plays bongos over it all while singing all at the same time.
