The Excellence Of Ellington: An Evening With Dave Chappelle

THE EXCELLENCE OF ELLINGTON: AN EVENING WITH DAVE CHAPPELLE

Ellington Community Members, Donors and Sponsors and Friends are invited to attend!

‍On June 20, DESA will name the performance arts theatre at Ellington after one of its most noted alumni — comedian and actor Dave Chappelle. The event will include an unveiling, theater dedication, and a production filled with surprises for Dave and the audience. The naming comes in appreciation for his ongoing commitment and service to the school and advocacy for the arts. Ellington’s co-founder Peggy Cooper Cafritz was a fierce believer in the transformative power of the arts and it was her hope that the theatre would be named after Chappelle and that he would use his platform to bring more resources and attention to the school.
