March 17th, 18th, 24th & 25th

Riverby Theatre Guide
59 Court Street
Gallipolis, OH 45631

The French Art Colony’s Riverby Theatre Guild production of “Hot Dames, Hot Lead” will take the stage this month, with performances on March 17th & 18th and March 24th & 25th in the RTG Studio on Court Street.
Gangsters and gals and P.I’s abound in this creative radio drama!  Directed by Linda Sigismondi, this production is sure to provide lots of laughs. Bring back the charm of the golden days of radio with this good old-fashioned cops and robbers drama set in a radio studio and performed by actors gathered around microphones. Catfish King, private eye, is chasing down a crook and maybe chasing Lola, the secretary, too. Corrupt politicians and mafia gunslingers give him a run for his money as he tries to crack the case. Featuring live sound effects and musical commercials, this is sure to be a unique night of theatre.
Limited seating is available and advance reservations are suggested call 740-446-3834 to reserve. Tickets are $10 ($8 for FAC members, when purchased in advance at the FAC.)
The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this organization with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.

St. Patrick’s Day Cultural Festival and Parade
March 18

The Artisan Shoppe & Studio
300 Second Avenue
Gallipolis, OH 45631

This will be the 3rd annual St. Patrick's Day Cultural Festival & Parade!
This event serves as an annual fundraiser for the Gallia County Artisan Market non-profit/501(c)(3) entity. We started the Gallia County Artisan Market events in February 2014 due to the need for local artisans to be able to display and sell their work. We expanded to open up The Artisan Shoppe in December 2014 so we could have a shoppe version of our markets for those who couldn't attend. We decided to expand even more by opening up The Artisan Studio in October 2015. The St. Patrick Day Cultural Parade started in March 2015 and the Festival part was added in March 2016 since there were no parades or events in the area to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Our mission is to educate the public and to promote arts and culture in our community. We are getting bigger and better every year and we hope you all join us in supporting our mission. All businesses, all arts, and all cultures are welcome to be involved.
Parade, park & sponsor forms are available to pick up/drop off at The Artisan Shoppe, the Gallia County Chamber of Commerce & the Gallia County Convention and Visitors Bureau. We can also email them upon request.
