There's something magical on its way to Sauk Prairie on March 21, 2015. Will you join us?
"River Arts Inc.'s first ever Aspire production in 2012 was a homecoming of Sauk Prairie High School alumni who had gone on into the arts- received an arts related college degree and paved their way (plus paid the rent!) using their passion and education within their field. It brought together incredibly talented men and women now living across the country back home to perform for those that nurtured and inspired their first inklings and desires. If you didn't get to see that show, you missed a magical assemblage of talent and heartfelt moments- and let me encourage you not to miss this years show on March 21, 2015 when we bring together the next round of exquisite performers. Each of these artists so lovely and wanting to truly say thank you to a community who provided the foundation for what became lives dedicated to the arts. Please join us in March for an unforgettable performance of stellar talent and meaningful gratitude-filled messages." -Ellana Kelter, Artistic Director aSPire 2015
