David Myles
May 17 @ 8:00 pm

David MylesLike his trademark suit, David Myles music is timeless. From soulful, contemporary pop crooners to delicate, jazzy folk ditties, from down-home, back porch roots tunes to infectious hip-hop earworms, this Juno Award winner’s only artistic constants are his always growing, shape-shifting songwriting, and his exceptional ability to entertain.

David effortlessly injects any song with his irresistible energy, which has led him to numerous collaborations – with a Latin Grammy winner to a world-renowned opera diva to a Canadian hip hop star. His endearing live charm, coupled with an uplifting sense of humor, has gained David an increasingly large fanbase, and afforded him frequent festival appearances.

Hovering somewhere around a magic spot between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake, David’s diverse set of musical tools has garnered a staggering number of prestigious nominations and awards. He has earned a reputation as a great showman, and his flawless musicianship and unforgettable stories have made him a favorite with fans everywhere.

The Diviners presented by Clayton Youth Theater @ The Clayton Center

Clayton Youth Theater presents The Diviners, Thursday-Saturday, February 21-23, at 7 PM.

Winner of the American College Theatre Festival, The Diviners, is the story of a mentally challenged boy and his friendship with a disenchanted preacher. In the fictional town of Zion, Indiana, during the Great Depression, a widowed farmer is raising his teenage son Buddy, whose brain was damaged during a near drowning. Because of this experience, the boy is terrified of water, yet he has also developed a certain brand of giftedness. When C.C. Showers, a former preacher, comes to the farm seeking employment and food, a special (and ultimately tragic) bond develops between the two. Rated PG for mild language and tragedy.

Tickets for The Diviners are $12 for adults and​ $6 for students 18 and under, plus sales tax and fees. All seating for these performances is reserved.
