If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. If you claim there is nothing to do around here, you aren’t even trying. I haven’t done one of these in a while, so let’s run through some upcoming local activities, because there is little in the world I enjoy more than being right.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times. If you claim there is nothing to do around here, you aren’t even trying. I haven’t done one of these in a while, so let’s run through some upcoming local activities, because there is little in the world I enjoy more than being right. I’ll be honest with you. This list took next to no time to put together, I didn’t even go further than Facebook. Imagine the list I could put together with slightly more effort and if I weren’t limited on column space. Since space is limited, let’s get into it.

In Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” the dysfunctional but wealthy Pollitt family gathers to celebrate aging patriarch Big Daddy’s birthday. But there is more to this gathering than a family reunion — Big Daddy is dying of cancer, and he hasn’t decided which of his sons will inherit the estate. His options include favorite son Brick, who drinks himself into oblivion in order to bear the oppressive expectations of his determined wife, Maggie, or his less-favored son Gooper, his fertile wife Mae, and their five “no-neck monster” children. While sensuous Maggie “the cat” tries to work her wiles to secure a future for them, Brick spirals deeper into despair, crippled by both physical pain and emotional loss. Sound interesting? You can see it live at the Community Theater League, April 21-30. Get your tickets at http://www.ctlshows.com.

The Uptown Music Collective’s next show is, “The Show Must Go On: The Music of Queen.” There are very few bands in rock and roll history whose music is as unique, exciting, entertaining, and unforgettable as the music of Queen. In the last performance of the Uptown Music Collective’s performance season, the students will take on these rock legends and perform this immortal music complete with an epic stage and light show, and with all the skill, passion, and excitement that people have come to expect from the school’s students. The show is Friday, April 28th at 7:30 p.m., at the Community Arts Center. You can find tickets at http://www.caclive.com.
Knoebel’s opening weekend is April 29th and 30th.
I’m starting to run out of space, but you get the idea. This list doesn’t even include all the great local bands playing every weekend, all of the art classes available, and more! And the weather is getting warmer, so don’t forget all the opportunities to hike, bike, fish, hunt and enjoy the beauty of central Pennsylvania!
