DCAC Theatre began back in 2009 under the Dawson County Arts Council with the show Godspell, Jr. At the time, there were 15 children involved with the program. Now, four years later, we regularly see 65+ kids come through our Youth Theatre Program every year, and the number keeps growing! Among our ongoing Youth Theatre projects is our award winning competition team, which recently saw three of its students receive the honor of being selected to fly to New York and workshop three new shows in the Broadway Jr and School Edition catalogs from Music Theatre International.
In 2010, we branched out and began working on our Mainstage Theatre. Our first adult production was Steel Magnolias. Our adult program lay dormant for a year until it was reborn in 2012 with new interest and inspiration. Our summer 2012 production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was a massive hit, and we plan to continue to develop our Mainstage program.
On the whole, DCAC Theatre is dedicated to providing North Georgia with quality theatre and exceptional education in the performing arts. Our education department is becoming more developed and expansive with each passing year.
