Classic film fest joins RAA lineup


• The Rusty Griswolds will perform Friday, March 14, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. at Walhill Farm. The band, a Cincinnati favorite, is “dedicated to the best music of the 1980s” and even has played at a Reds game. Greene predicted the show will be “kind of like an adult prom with dancing .... People who want to have dinner can come early. I’m very excited about the event because I get to relive my middle school days!” Tickets are $15 for members and $18 for nonmembers.

• RAA will host a free Community Art Show reception at Batesville Community Church and street party on George Street Thursday, June 19, 2014, during the Batesville Music and Arts Festival.

• A community musical called “The Yankee Doodle” can be applauded June 27-29, 2014, at the Batesville High School auditorium. The show is similar to the 1942 movie “Yankee Doodle Dandy” (No. 98 on the AFI top 100) and “will feature a large cast of local talent. I can’t think of a better patriotic show for this time of year for Batesville.”

• For its 15th appearance, Minnesota-based Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre experts will bring in sets and costumes and coach local kids July 14-18, 2014, before two “Beauty and the Beast” performances July 18-19 at BHS.

The art auction, RAA’s major fundraiser, will remain in early May at the Hill-Rom Center.

Persons who want to become RAA members, volunteer to help with the auction or other events, learn details or order tickets may reach administrator Joan Kuhlman at 933-0355.

Treasurer Barb Greene reported, “The RAA had another great year financially.” The nonprofit had a year-end balance of $131,329, which does not include RCCF endowment funds or restricted Theatre Development Fund investments.

She observed, “By far, the largest source of income was the art auction,” chaired by Mary Ellen Rippe and Rita George. Total income was $94,088, including art auction, $51,055; program admissions, $18,213; memberships, $13,565; and grants, $10,487.
