Active Stages brings free professional theater to children in Davis and Weber
Layton, UT (October 17, 2017) Davis Arts Council (DAC) is proud to announce our 2017 Active Stages
season. Active stages is a free theater program the DAC takes into elementary schools around Davis
County. This year’s production is titled “River.Swamp.Cave.Mountain” and features 5 year old JJ (who
has lots of questions) and 8 year old Izzy (a know-it- all who doesn’t know it all), siblings who have
recently lost their grandmother. They embark on a funny and touching hero’s journey to try to make
sense of loss, grief, death and life.
The Davis County elementary school tour will take place October 23-27 and November 13-17. In addition
to these performances, the DAC is also hosting 3 performances open to the public at local libraries.
These performances are completely free and no ticket is required.

About Davis Arts Council:
The Davis Arts Council (DAC) was founded in 1979 and has grown steadily to proudly serve the Northern
Wasatch Front as the largest community-based, arts-focused non-profit organization in Davis County.
DAC’s mission is to “strengthen and enrich our community through the power of the arts.”
The heart of our mission rests on a starry summer night at the Edward A. Kenley Centennial
Amphitheater (the Kenley Amphitheater), which we consider to be the “front Porch” of Layton City and
northern Davis County. Each summer, DAC’s “Summer Nights with the Stars” season of music and dance
brings an eclectic mix of local, national, and international performers right to Layton City and northern
Davis County. Performances have included the incredible talent of Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Olivia
Newton-John, Foreigner, Marc Cohn, Judy Collins, Huey Lewis & The News, Amy Grant, The Beach Boys,
Mary Chapin Carpenter, Josh Turner, Styx, Indigo Girls, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Rhythmic Circus, Rita
Moreno, Alex Boyé, Thompson Square, Collin Raye, and so many more.
As accessibility is a key component to fulfilling our mission, DAC presents many free programs and
services as well, including our “Free Sunday Night Concert Series” at the Kenley Amphitheater; Active
Stages: Arts in Education, seen by Davis County Students annually; Senior Stages: The Art of Aging,
bringing theater to seniors in Davis County; Free Friday Family Film Festival, free movies for families in
the park; “Snow Horse Visual Arts Gallery,” a partnership with the Davis Conference Center; and the
“Davis Arts Chamber Music Series”. We then conclude our programmatic year with a holiday
celebration of music we like to call “DAC the Halls.”
The Davis Arts Council’s vision is to be an exemplary community arts organization recognized for
presenting the highest-quality artistic programs that are accessible year-round to our entire community.
