    In May of 2020, Regional Performing Arts lost Colton Darr, one of our talented young actors. Colton had a condition called Long QT Syndrome that caused him to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest. After this loss, Regional wanted to take action to both honor Colt’s memory and continue his legacy by finding a way for students to participate in the performing arts who might not have the financial means to do so. Through a partnership with the Porter County Community Foundation, the Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund was born. The goal of this fund is to raise an untouched principal of at least $10,000, which will result in roughly $500 of awardable monies each year to help students afford performing arts experiences wherever they may go.
    Join us LIVE on YouTube for the first ever Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund Telethon! The evening will be filled with a variety of musical acts in a loving tribute to Colt's memory.
    If you would like to contribute to Colt's Memorial fund, text "COLT" to 44-321 or visit https://regionalperformingarts.org/the-colton-darr.../ for more information

    Complete your own collection or make a special gift for that special someone, all while staying in! RPAC will deliver all the materials for one finished canvas painting project to your doorstep. You provide the cookies, candy hearts, or beverages of choice and the painters. We will provide the step-by-step paint along via a private Zoom event. This is a great chance to get out without going out!

    (Our design is TBD. Once it is set, we will update this event with the correct photo. It will make for a great Valentine's day gift, especially for those who are hard to shop for!)

    $20 covers the cost of canvas, paint, and serves as admission to the event. If you would like to keep your easel and paintbrushes you may do so for an extra $5. (Our easels make a great display stand in a pinch!)

    Materials for this event will be delivered on January 21st to your patio via contactless delivery.

    Unpurchased easels and brushes will be picked up via our state-of-the-art patio delivery system after the event.
