It seems hard to believe that A Christmas Carol is in its 27th year of being directed at Civic Theatre in Allentown. The show has evolved over the years, most notably on the number of actors, from a mere 31 when it started in 1989 to over 100 in today’s production.

Kids will love The Little Mermaid.

I’ve heard the rumors that opening day is the day to attend a show at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. This was definitely the case for the opening day of The Little Mermaid.

The actors occasionally engaged members of the audience, who relished their moments in the spotlight and were pretty comical themselves.
