Rainy Day Weekend Suggestions

Due to the wind and rain, the folks at Oktoberfest in Bethlehem have postponed their opening to noontime tomorrow, Saturday, October 3, 2015. And if you’d rather wait for a milder day, the Festival continues next weekend, October 9-11, 2015.

Meanwhile, several plays just opened locally, some of which are only playing this weekend.

This weekend only, you can attend performances of Nunsense at Cedar Crest College; 8 p..m. tonight and Saturday night, October 2-3, and matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4 (100 College Drive, Allentown, PA), and New Voices, 3 short plays written by students at Muhlenberg College; 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, October 2-3, and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, October 3-4 (2400 Chew Street, Allentown, PA). The family can get in the mood for fall and Halloween with the play Legend of Sleepy Hollow, on stage in Telford, PA (795 Ridge Road) at DCP Theater, opening tonight at 8 p.m., followed by four matinee performances; 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, October 3 and 4, 2015. One weekend only, this adaptation is intended for family audiences:

Here is the spooky classic story by Washington Irving, presented with all the thrills, chills and laughs that keep young audiences on the edge of their seats. The storybook tale revolves around the main characters—the bumbling, awkward schoolteacher, Ichabod, the coquettish Katrina and Ichabod’s brutish rival, Brom Bones. There are also six characters who play storytellers, keeping the action and pace moving throughout.

Also opening this weekend, but running a bit longer, are the plays God of Carnage at Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University (420 Packer Avenue, Bethlehem, PA), October 2-9, 2015 (ticket prices for Wednesday’s performance is “pay-what-you-wish” – contact Ticket Services for details), Bus Stop at DeSales University (2755 Station Ave, Center Valley, PA), September 30 – October 11, 2015, and the political comedy November at Pennsylvania Playhouse in Bethlehem (390 Illicks Mill Road), October 2 -11, 2015.
