Rich Mehrenberg was introduced to the magic of theater when he played "The Boy" in his first grade class production of "The Giving Tree". It has been a long term love affair ever since. He enjoys being both on stage and in the audience of Central Pennsylvania theaters and beyond.
Dutch Apple's production of White Christmas is a great night of theater for those wishing for some nostalgic memories of holidays from long ago. Simply put, If the Ghost of Christmas Past had a favorite musical, this would be it.BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS STORY at Fulton Theatre November 17, 2017

Sean Young and Bobbi Bear play Sweeney Todd and his partner in crime, Mrs Lovett. Young's singing and speaking voice has a clear deep register that is especially adept in expressing menace. Bear's voice and demeanor is complimentary with a more energetic, bubbly quality. The pair have good chemistry together.BWW Interview: Director, Jack Hartman of FRANKENSTEIN at The Belmont Theatre October 7, 2017

A long time ago, my drama professor told me that 'the surest sign of a good play is that you leave the theater thinking about something other than where you parked your car'. This particular quote nicely summarizes the strengths of Doubt, playing through September 16th at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center.BWW Interview: Jim Johnson of A CHORUS LINE at Susquehanna Stage Company August 10, 2017
"Guilty Parties" tells the true story of Jim Garrison, the only man to ever bring a trial in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The play examines the suspicion toward "the establishment" that began to take root in this country at that time, and which is alive and well more than 50 years lateBWW Interview: Pat Kautter of HAIR at Ephrata Performing Arts Center April 17, 2017
Hair is an upbeat assertion of life and freedom with a classic rock score that fueled the charts of the late 60's. In our own era of uncertainty, hopefully the audience will join in the show's classic anthem to 'Let the Sunshine In'.
