Don't let the name fool ya. EPAC's production of Something Rotten is totally fresh. In fact, it is their best show post-pandemic, by far. (Any show that rhymes 'penis' and 'genius' in it's first ten minutes is gonna crack you up!)

WEST SIDE STORY, book by Arthur Laurents, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and music by Leonard Bernstein, a triple-header team, WEST SIDE STORY, that walked off with six Tony nominations in 1957, is somehow the musical that lost to THE MUSIC MAN for Best Musical that year. Now, there's not a thing wrong with THE MUSIC MAN, but everything has always been very right about the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet meet the gritty streets of New York.

There's no place like home and there's no place like the Ephrata Performing Arts Center for the holiday season. EPAC sidesteps the glut of 'A Christmas Carol' productions performed at community theaters this time of year, and instead, puts on Decembers shows that are big, fun, and targeted for the entire family.

by A.A. Cristi - Aug 22, 2016

David Mamet's award winning drama Glengarry Glen Ross, follows four real estate agents in Chicago as they come under intense pressure to be top performers at any cost. After successful runs in London and Chicago, Glengarry Glen Ross moved to Broadway in 1984 and to the silver screen in the 1992 film of the same name starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, and Kevin Spacey. The combined stage and film versions of Glengarry Glen Ross won the Pulitzer Prize, a Tony award, and several Academy Award nominations.
