In 2003 due to school funding cuts the Children's Theater became dependent on contributions from private clubs and individuals to pay for this one month local children's program. This year the play will be Lucky, Luck Hudson. It will be performed June 29 and June 30 at Greenfield-Central High Auditorium, Anyone interested in contributing financial support can mail their checks to Hancock County Children's Theater, 1339 Greenhills Rd, Greenfield, Indian.a 46140
