Cara DeChurch Presents



Dec. 17


The Main Stage, The Youngstown Playhouse

Cara DeChurch is a native of the Mahoning Valley. She is a singer, actor, and writer. In 2018, she graduated from Canfield High School and moved to New York City to study and train with the Institute for American Musical Theatre (IAMT). After learning from working Broadway professionals, she graduated from this program in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. This led her to put her future in her own hands. She has just finished recording a Christmas album that includes her first self written single and music video. Her album and single are called "Smells Like Snow" and they are sure to make you fall "snow in love".
Having recently moved back to the area, she has decided to put on a Christmas show to promote her album. However, the twist is that she wants to use it as an opportunity to help uplift the Youngstown area. She has made it her mission to find an upstanding organization to donate a profit to. This has led her to the SMARTS school in Youngstown. 
The SMARTS (Students Motivated by the Arts) school has provided free art classes/programs for children K-12 since 1997.   

On December 17th, 2022 she will be putting on a Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. at the Youngstown Playhouse. Her intention is that all ticket proceeds will go to the SMARTS school. She is currently collecting sponsors to fund the show, and feels extremely humbled by this whole experience.
Please, join us to make her dreams come true. With a show featuring local talent, and some SMARTS students, you will be in for a night of holiday merriment.
