The Dakota Prairie Regional Center for the Arts in New Rockford opens its spring show, “Country Is, The Music of Main Street,” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 17, in the Old Church Theatre. There will be 10 performances through April 9, including evenings and matinees.

Directed by DPRCA founder and managing director Deb Belquist, “Country Is, The Music of Main Street” is a theatrical country concert celebrating the traditional themes at the heart of the American main street. The two-hour show includes a range of timeless classics and contemporary country performed by a live fivepiece band and a dozen vocal performers.

Belquist said the show has a lot of energy and she’s excited to welcome some new faces to the stage.

“We are always thrilled to work with bright and talented performers from throughout the area,” she said. “This show has something for everyone and celebrates the powerful stories that are told through country music.”

In addition to the vocals, Belquist said one of the highlights of the show is the talented live band that brings the music to life.
