Illumine, Camelot, and Tartuffe

Here’s another opportunity to hear the very talented trio illumine. The concert’s theme chosen by the Philadelphia based chamber music ensemble is Spanish Fire (Fuego Español) and will consist entirely of music by Spanish composers. Friday night’s program, July 22, 2016,  will be held at Shenkel United Church of Christ (1580 Shenkel Road, Pottstown, PA 19465) beginning  at 7:00, and lasting roughly 2 hours. If you’ve already made plans for tonight, you can also catch them in Devon on Friday, July 29, 2016 at the Main Line Unitarian Church (816 South Valley Forge Road, Devon, PA), at 7 p.m. Admission for both concerts is free.

Illumine---Spanish-Fire

The well known musical Camelot opens tonight at the DCP Theater in Telford.

The magical tale of King Arthur, his beloved Queen Guenevere,
and the Knights of the Round Table, told through such enchanting
songs as “I Wonder What The King Is Doing Tonight”,
“If Ever I Would Leave You”, and “What Do The Simple Folk Do?”

Tickets may be bought online, or at the door. The show runs from July 22 – August 6, 2016. DCP Theater, 795 Ridge Road, Telford, PA     215-234-0966

Camelot

And for one night only, at Green Lane Park Amphitheater on Saturday, July 23, 2016, Tartuffe;

This summer begins with a “Free Theatre in the Parks” production of Moliere’s comic masterpiece, TARTUFFE.  Moliere’s play pokes fun at both individual and societal moral smugness, and reveals (and revels in) the outrageousness of religious hypocrisy. Orgon, the head of a wealthy family, deceives himself into believing that Tartuffe, a seemingly devout, but actually rapacious vagrant is, in fact, a man of impeccable morality and goodness. But Tartuffe is not heaven sent, and all hell breaks loose when Tartuffe sets his sights on Orgon’s fortune…and his wife. The fun heats up once the family, and the family maid, put a plan in place to prove Tartuffe to be a fraud.

Bring a chair or blanket, maybe a cooler with cold drinks (no alcohol), and find a spot on the lawn for this free performance, which begins at 7 p.m. You might also have a picnic at the nearby picnic tables before the show. Last year’s theater in the park in Green Lane (Shakespeare’s Tempest) was fantastic, and there’s no reason to think that this year’s show will not be as well. The Green Lane Park Amphitheater is located on Green Lane Road in Green Lane, PA. From Route 29 take Park Road and stay left onto Green Lane Road to the park entrance. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. All ages; free.
