BWW Review: A CHORUS LINE at Susquehanna Stage Company BWW Review: A CHORUS LINE at Susquehanna Stage Company
by Allison Rambler on August 16, 2017 in Central Pennsylvania

Every so often, a show comes along that strikes a chord in the most difficult audience to please: actors. As people of show business, we as actors find ourselves in a difficult position when going to see a show that is not ours; we are critical, we are hopeful, we are looking to be impressed. Often times, we are pleasantly amused and surprised by other works of theatre, but rarely do we find a show that speaks to us as clearly as A CHORUS LINE. The mere title of the show aims itself directly at actors themselves, and has prided itself on representing the trials and tribulations of show business for several decades. Central PA's most recent incarnation, presented by Susquehanna Stage Company, invokes just the same feelings that inspire each and every actor to push just a little bit harder to reach their goals.

BWW Review: TAKING LEAVE at Oyster Mill Playhouse BWW Review: TAKING LEAVE at Oyster Mill Playhouse
by Allison Rambler on August 16, 2017 in Central Pennsylvania

Oyster Mill Playhouse in Camp Hill, PA, is perhaps known for their ability to bring plays previously lacking in recognition back into the public eye. Time and time again, they have proved themselves masters of the unknown, making us wonder how the theatre community has overlooked certain plays that are capable of provoking just as much thought and emotion as any work of Tennessee Williams or Arthur Miller. With their current production of TAKING LEAVE, Oyster Mill Playhouse once again breathes life into a show that may have otherwise slipped through the cracks. (more...)

BWW Feature: SUMMER ART MARKET at The Parliament Arts Organization in Downtown York, PA BWW Feature: SUMMER ART MARKET at The Parliament Arts Organization in Downtown York, PA
by Christy Brooks on August 14, 2017 in Central Pennsylvania

For the second year, the SUMMER ART MARKET, in coordination with THE PARLIAMENT ARTS ORGANIZATION located in Downtown York, Pennsylvania, has produced an opportunity for visual, fine and performing artists, to exhibit their talents for the area and surrounding communities. Kate Harmon, Director of Events and Marketing for The Parliament, states 'The Parliament Arts Organization is a nonprofit with a simple mission - Empowering artists. Transforming York. We do it several ways - through our art gallery with rotating shows, workshops to help creatives develop skills needed to make their business a success, and through hosting small and large events for the community. This year, the Summer Art Market was a way for us to really focus on giving local artists a platform to sell. By raising additional sponsorship dollars, we were able to waive the fee for local artists (and even rent them tents for free), so that nothing was in their way when it came to selling their wares.'
