Family Event Added To January Schedule

Family programming at an affordable price can be hard to come by, so The Clayton Center has added a special event to our winter schedule that fits both bills.

Audiences ages 8 to 80 will love Tomáš Kubínek – Miracle Man. Kubínek is a comic genius, virtuoso vaudevillian and all-around charmer who gives audiences an utterly joyous experience. Part clown, part mime, part acrobat, Kubínek’s slapstick brand of humor will leave you clutching your sides with laughter.

Tickets for the Thursday, January 31, show are only $5, plus sales tax and fees. Children ages 8-12 are free with the purchase of an Individual $5 ticket. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Treat your family to a show they won’t soon forget! (Even though children are free; they still need a ticket for admission to the show.)

Due to the focused nature of the program, this performance is not suitable for children under 8 years old.

 

Clayton Couple Named Scene Stealers Of The Year

Stan and Vicki Hole of Clayton were named The Clayton Center’s Scene Stealer volunteers of the year for the 2016-17 Palladian Series season. Stan and Vicki, who volunteer as greeters, ushers and ticket scanners at shows throughout the season, were honored at the annual Scene Stealer Appreciation dinner held at The Clayton Center on Thursday, August 3.

All of the Scene Stealers who were active throughout the season were treated to dinner and tickets to Clayton Youth Theater’s production of Little Shop Of Horrors.

The Scene Stealers are a dedicated group of volunteers who work as greeters, ushers and ticket takers and who pass out programs and assist with concessions during events at the Clayton venue.

The Scene Stealer of the Year – chosen each year by the staff of The Clayton Center – is recognized for a commitment to ensuring that our patrons have an enjoyable experience when they attend an event at The Clayton Center.

Stan and Vicki are pictured at right with Scene Stealer coordinator and CYT director Nikki Dyke.

Millstock Morphs Into Mondo Roots

mondorootsclaytonncThe festival formerly known as Millstock took on a different flavor on Saturday, and drew crowds to downtown Clayton for a multicultural arts experience.

The first annual Mondo Roots festival featured music that was as diverse as the artists displaying their wares. Rap, reggae, jazz, soul and funk could be heard from the stage on Town Square from 1 until 8 pm on Saturday. Congratulations to the organizers on a successful event!
