img-promo-artShow-178x275Spring is here and Center Stage is ready to bring the community the best of all the arts have to offer. To kick off the fundraising season, Center Stage is presenting their Arts and Crafts Show on Saturday, May 17th from 9am to 5 pm, with tons of vendors showcasing the talents of local potters, painters, jewelry makers and many others that create unique items.
Center Stage Event Planner, Carol Thomas said, “Theater pulls the community together. Many people don’t realize how much money it takes to keep our doors open. We rely on our generous sponsors who provide our endeavors with the funds needed to bring the community quality entertainment.”
New this year at CS is the Theater for Students for elementary thru high school. This special time for the students includes after school classes, Saturday classes and classes for home schooled children.
The Center Stage Arts and Crafts Show, an outdoor event, will use the proceeds to benefit their mission to bring the best to the community. With 47 food and arts and craft vendors on site, the free event will offer something for everyone! A variety of local food vendors will serve up some of the best dishes that the Coast has to offer.
