Postcard_PictureAlthough the Studio Level is one of four levels in the Prairie Arts Center that has opened it has recorded a successful first year. North Platte Community College has been conducting its 3 dimensional art classes in the building for nearly a year. This completed level of the Prairie Arts center houses space for ceramic and pottery classes plus a drying room and a room for firing art creations. There is also spaces for woodworking and a variety of art classes. In addition this level houses much of the new infrastructure for heating, electricity and air conditioning. A new four level staircase and elevator are also part of the Studio Level. Two new restrooms, office space and a reception area round out the completed floor.

The Prairie Arts center also introduced the “Create A Canvas” art class to North Platte where participants of all ages paint a canvass under the direction of an art instructor. From January through October 2014 we offered 30 classes bringing in 404 new “artists” and had 120 volunteers help with the classes.

A few unexpected benefits of the arts have been demonstrated in recent national research showing that students who participate in the arts at school and in the community have higher grades and test scores and lower drop-out rates. Students with 4 years of art or music in high school average 100 points better on their ACT scores that students with just one-half year of music or art.

It has also been shown that the arts improve health care. Hospitals that offer art programming for patients, families and staff do so because of the healing benefits to patients—shorter hospital stays, better pain management and less medication.

The Prairie Arts Center is working hard to bring more benefits to our community and area by completing our next major project—the opening of the Gallery Level. We depend on and appreciate your continued support.

church basement ladies logo

The second production of the 2014/15 season at the North Platte Community Playhouse, Away in the Basement: A Church Basement Ladies Christmas, opens Friday, November 14.

Come celebrate the holidays with the Church Basement Ladies in this all-new musical show filled with their heart-warming humor and wisdom. The year is 1959, and the ladies are putting the final touches on the annual Sunday School Christmas Program. You can almost smell the cookies baking as these ladies dish out more than holiday goodies. “Away in the Basement” is a delightfully funny way to celebrate the holiday season.

The Playhouse is excited to announce that each production will now offer six night of performances. In the past, the majority of NPCP productions have ran for five nights, but, due to demand and busy schedules, an additional performance will be added to each production.

Tickets sales begin Monday, November 10, 2014. Tickets are available at the Playhouse Box Officer Monday-Friday from Noon-5:00, online at the Playhouse website, or at the door prior to each performance. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students. Special group rates are available.

Performances will be held November 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23, with evening performances beginning at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday matinees beginning at 2:00 p.m.

This production is made possible, in part, by the support of the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment of the Arts.
