We’re putting on a show! With support from several other organizations, Dayton Metro is creating a brand new, original theatrical production, FELIX & FIONA’S MUSICAL ADVENTURE. Before the premier takes place in June, there is a lot of work to be done! There are backdrops, sets, and props to build, and theatrical lighting to coordinate.
“We are very excited to have the guidance of Sinclair Community College’s Theatre Department for our pre-production work, but we’d love to get some help from anyone who is interested,” said Jayne Klose, Community Engagement Manager. “There are opportunities for kids, teenagers, adults and families to lend a hand with sets, props and other behind-the-scenes theater work.”
All sessions are free and take place at the Main Library, 215 E. Third Street.

Members of the Sinclair Community College Theatre Department will paint the backdrop for Dayton Metro Library’s musical production that will debut at the Party in the Park on Saturday, June 29. Lend a hand with the painting or just drop in and watch how a backdrop is made.
