Take a peek into the imagination of children at Touchstone Theatre’s “Young Playwrights’ Festival” playing one night only at Zoellner Arts Center in Bethlehem.
The festival, unlike any other theater program in the Lehigh Valley, presents one-act plays written by students from fourth grade through high school on May 12 for the festival’s 13th year.
Emmaus native and award-winning filmmaker Stephanie Gardner wanted to spotlight local films directed by and starring women in her second film festival in her hometown.
“I was excited to find out how many women are making films in the Lehigh Valley,” Gardner says. “It was bigger than I expected.”
When Civic Theatre of Allentown first staged “Tuesdays With Morrie” in 2008 it was an intimate production presented on the then new black box stage of Theatre514.
This time around, the two-person play about a student and his teacher dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease, opens May 4 on the much larger stage of Cedar Crest’s Alumnae Hall.
Emmaus High School Chorale has a reputation for bursting into song pretty much anywhere. But when they decided to spontaneously sing John Lennon’s “Imagine” on a boat in Boston Harbor, their song ended up reaching tens of thousands more people than they ever dreamed.
A little over a week ago, the chorale went on a three-day trip to Boston combining concerts and touring. Among their plans was to perform at Old South Meeting House and at Old North Church, two historic sites in Boston.
