ARC to host a Dessert Theatre

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The ARC of Southeast Mississippi will be hosting a Disney themed show choir event this weekend.

We've all heard of a dinner theatre but this will be a Dessert Theatre.

The event will be performed by about 40 individuals with disabilities who attend the ARC located on Bonhomie Road here in Hattiesburg.

Songs from many of the popular Disney movies will be featured.

Shows will be held on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. and a Sunday matinee at 3 p.m.

"Despite our disabilities with all of our individuals here at the ARC we give them the opportunity to get up on stage, learn songs, learn dances and perform," said Emily Hodges, administrative assistant ARC of Southeast MS. "They get all decked out, we have formal attire up here it's a big, big deal. Getting them up on the stage and letting them have that shining light moment of 'oh, I'm a superstar' and that's what we want them to do."

Tickets are $10 dollars and can be purchased at the door.

There will also be a silent auction and a pottery sale to go along with the program during it's intermission.

The desserts will be provided by Bops of Hattiesburg.
