The Central Penn Players Drama Club is primed for the curtain to rise in the Capital Blue Cross Theatre in The Underground at Fall Harvest on Saturday.
Central Penn Theater Director Janet Bixler said she is especially excited about this year’s lineup.
Grace in Motion
Pennsylvania Regional Ballet youth between the ages of 6 and 18 will present duets and group performances from noon to 12:30.
“I think it’s great that we as an East Penn Township nonprofit can give back to the community and to the Central Penn community with this performance,” the ballet’s executive director, and Central Penn marketing and merchandising alumna, Kathryn Aumiller said.
Also, from 12:45 to 1:15 p.m., the Central Penn Players will stage a play the members created.
The play, Mysterious Golden Rose, is particularly suitable for children 2 to 8.
Bixler said she’s especially proud of the drama club students for creating the play, and is excited about the performance.
In the play, two best friends take a walk through Fairyland and encounter several challenges. A stranger suddenly appears with a magical golden rose, leaving one friend to believe the rose will solve all their problems.
Bixler’s lips are sealed, so people will have to see the play to find out.
Have a Few Laughs
Giggles and guffaws will be sure to fly when standup comic Earl David Reed returns to Central Penn, taking center stage at 1:45.
Reed, a local favorite, and also popular in cities such as Las Vegas and Atlantic City, has performed at over 100 colleges and comedy clubs.
