Drive-In Shows Will Bring Fun & Support for a Good Cause

Young actors rehearse on an outdoor stage

Thank you to Black Hills Energy for supporting a weekend of youth, education, and theatre! Black Hills Energy is generously supporting a drive-in film screening performance of The Big One-Oh and live drive-in performance of COATS.

We are excited to announce that any ticket sale or “pay what you can” up to $5,000 will be matched by Black Hills Energy. These three events will take place Saturday, November 14, and Sunday, November 15, at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

Coat & Denim Drive

Giving back does not stop there. Black Hills Energy, Scotch Fabric Care, and the Lawrence Arts Center are teaming up to collect coats and denim for the community. Clean out your closet, tubs, and basements and bring your items to the performances that weekend to donate to those in need. Attend the following events and help give back!

Blue Jeans Go Green – Give Old Denim New Purpose: Denim collected will promote energy efficiency by being recycled into insulation and used to help with building efforts around the country. Denim should be clean, 90% cotton or greater, and be free from hangers, tags, stickers, or plastic.

Share the Warmth Coat Drive: Bring a coat in good condition, and Scotch Fabric Care will clean it and work with the Salvation Army to get it to someone in need in our community.

The Events 

Two ways to view: Drive-In and Video On Demand!

In this new “Zoomsical,” Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties – that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning 10—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course, things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh… becomes the big OH-NO!?
