Theater in February 2017

Perkiomen School middle school and upper school students have joined together to stage this year’s musical, Back to the ’80’s. Performances begin at 7:3o p.m. on Friday, February 17th, and Saturday, February 18th, and at 2 p.m .on Sunday, February 19th, 2017 at Kehs Theater, 200 Seminary Avenue, Pennsburg, PA.

On Opening Night, there will be a pre-show reception. Guests are encouraged to wear their finest 80’s gear. The pre-show party will be held in the Innovation Center, Carnegie Library (corner of 2nd and Seminary Avenue, Pennsburg, PA) at 6:30 pm.

The musical comedy 9-5 The Musical opened last weekend at Civic Theater, 19th Street, Allentown, PA, and continues its run through the end of the month (final night is February 26, 2016). Tickets may be bought online , over the phone ( (610) 432-8943), or at the box office.

9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton, is based on the beloved hit movie. Set in the late 1970s, this is the hilarious story of three unlikely friends who unwittingly kidnap their sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot boss and subsequently take over the office…to extraordinary results. Join us for this office party!

This is the closing weekend for Clybourne Park, currently being staged at Steel River Playhouse, 245 E. High Street, Pottstown, PA. Tickets may be bought at the door or online. The show begins at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening, Feb. 16-18, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 19, 2017.

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize, London’s Olivier Award for Best Play and the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a wickedly funny and fiercely provocative play about the volatile combination of race and real estate.

The Upper Perkiomen Middle School is staging the play Circus Olympus over the final weekend of the month, February 24-25, 2017.

No, not the circus with elephants on bicycles or lion tamers in the center ring,
Circus Olympus!! UPMS students from 6th, 7th and 8th grade are busily preparing this play for presentation on Friday, February 24 and Saturday, February 25.
The show starts each evening at 7 pm and offers Greek mythology with a circus atmosphere.The “Greek geeks” will share the stories of Demeter and Persephone, Perseus, Arachne and many more. The myths are served up with a healthy helping of circus silliness! The students have been rehearsing since December and are looking forward to sharing their talents with the audiences!
General admission tickets are $5.00 and will be available at the door.
It is not too early to reserve tickets for upcoming high school theater events (soon to be listed on ValleyArtScene Theater page), including for this year’s musical at the Upper Perkiomen High School; Beauty and the Beast, which will be performed March 9-12, 2017, in the UPHS auditorium, 2 Walt Road, Pennsburg, PA.

    Thanks for the link to Beauty and the Beast, I bought tickets tonight!

    I bought tickets for myself and Homer and 4 grandkids. If you decide you want to go and sit with us, there is one seat left in our row: K-21. Of course, you don’t have to sit with us if you don’t want to! ☺

    And I am taking Evie and Faith to see Back to the 80’s tomorrow evening.
