St. Charles, July 21 - The Norris Cultural Arts Center invites the community to join in a celebration of its 40th anniversary on Saturday, September 30, at 6pm in the Baker Community Center in downtown St. Charles.

The evening will feature a unique dinner-theater experience with a full buffet dinner including choice of entrees, combined with a professional production of the popular musical play, “Forever Plaid,” directed by Konnie Kay Sherry and produced by Encore Theatre Productions. Attendees also will have an opportunity to further support The Norris by participating in a raffle of valuable prize baskets, themed to appeal to a variety of interests. The event also includes pre- and post-dinner live music, exhibits of art and relevant historical artifacts and photos, and an open bar featuring premium wines and beers.

"We invite all supporters of the performing and visual arts to attend this event and celebrate the past, present and future of the community’s cultural cornerstone, the Dellora A. Norris Cultural Arts Center," said James L. Collins, Norris board chairman.

Funds raised at the event will support the operations of the Norris Cultural Arts Center, a qualified non-profit organization. The Norris soon will announce plans for its upcoming 40th anniversary season, including the fourth season of its "Music in the Gallery" concert series and a variety of art gallery exhibits. Named for its benefactor, Dellora A. Norris, who with her husband Lester Norris donated the funds and land for the center's construction, The Norris opened in early 1978 and has hosted thousands of performances and hundreds of art gallery exhibits throughout its history.

Seating for the 40th Anniversary Celebration event is limited to 150. Tickets are available online at https://norris-cultural-arts.ticketleap.com/40th-anniversary-celebration/ or by calling The Norris at 630-584-7200. For more information, please visit www.NorrisCulturalArts.com.

The Norris also welcomes the financial support of anyone who cannot attend. Contributions may be made to the Norris Fund for the Arts https://www.communityfoundationfrv.org/profile/norris-fund/administered on behalf of The Norris by the Community Foundation of the Fox River Valley.
