PARADISE, Calif. -  Two "Joy Will Find a Way" performances are planned for Sunday, November 10th to experience Butte County's resilience after the Camp Fire through the arts.  The shows will take place at 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the Paradise Performing Arts Center, 777 Nunneley road.

There will be music, poetry, visual arts, theatre and dance performances by local artists, including Theatre on the Ridge, Paradise Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Opera Violinist Dawn Harms, and "A New Dawn" - poetry and film by Paradise Jr. and Sr. High School students.  You will also hear from performing Songwriters Mark McKinnon, Nate Smith, Maurice "Big Mo" Huffman, John-Michael Sun and David Leon Zink.  The Envy Hip hop Team from CSU, Chico will perform, so will the "Doin' It Justice" Chorus. And, you can experience film shorts by Allen Myers and Nirvan Mullick, along with artworks from the Paradise Art Center and Museum of Northern California Art as well as photography by Dave Bermann.

Director David Leon Zink said, "The metaphor for building the show is what we each experienced after the fire.  In the huge, black burn scar, after the first rain, there were tender shoots of green grass pushing up through the scar. Life coming back. And nowhere is that more exemplified than through the arts. When people start creating it makes sense of what they've come through and that's a positive thing, a sign of hope. This is all about that. " 

The event is a benefit for the Paradise Performing Arts Center and Norton Buffalo Hall. The PPAC survived the fire but the Hall did not.

Tickets by donation are available at Eventbrite.com. You can also get them in Paradise at Bobbi's Boutique and Paradise Coin & Gift. In Chico, they're available at Music Connection and Wilson's Printing.
