All the goats in the junkyard know the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff or do they? In this interactive and puppet-filled musical, a young goat leaves the junkyard for the first time and stumbles into the fantastical land of the trolls.

The Broadway comedy A Thousand Clowns opens at the Montgomery Theater on June 18th and continues through July 13, 2014.

This well-loved Broadway comedy produced one of theatre’s most beloved roles: Unconventional Murray, uncle to precocious nephew, Nick. Tired of writing cheap comedy gags for “Chipper the Chipmunk,” a children’s television star, Murray finds himself unemployed with plenty of free time with which to pursue his. . . pursuits. Lectured by his conventional brother Arnold and hounded by “the system” Murray’s behavior eventually inspires a visit from bickering and uptight social workers Sandra and Albert. Their meeting leads Murray to solve their problems as well as most of his own. 

Join us on Friday, June 27 before the performance for a special cooking demonstration by Chef Ed Varon from Peter Becker Community. Chef Varon will be cooking up some New York themed foods and offering samples to all audience members!  Call for more information (215) 723-9984
