Community Theater Interest Meeting

Have you ever wanted to be on stage? Are you curious about the ins and outs of live theatrical performances?

We’ll be discussing our first performance for spring 2014 and organizing a group of leaders for the future. Light refreshments will be served. Call 336.679.2941 or email lindsay@yadkinarts.org for more information.

September 13-November 1

Douglas Butler and Julian Charles—widely exhibited, award-winning photographers living in northwestern North Carolina—join at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center for their first collaborative exhibition.

Butler and Charles have much in common. Both are accomplished mountain climbers, international adventure travelers and both share a passion for the environment. While both men seek similar goals through photography, each has selected a complementary aspect of their work for this show.

Viewing hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Closed Sunday.

The Yadkin Cultural Arts Center is located at 226 E. Main Street in Yadkinville.

The 193-seat state-of-the-art theater offers live music, drama, dance performances, community theater and children’s theater. The theater meets ADA requirements. It is equipped with assisted listening devices for the hearing impaired and special seating for people in wheelchairs.
