Allison Blaine (Marissa Hoover) thought her life with Danny Goldstein (Mark Elliot) was perfect. That is until her Southern Baptist parents, Elaine Blaine (Laura Stewart) and Edward Blaine (John Fielding) arrive unannounced on Christmas Eve. Mad antics ensue with the Irish landlady (Cheryl Crummett), Danny’s brother Jonah (Brian Miller) and his grandfather Aaron (Mike Pardo). Directed by Santo D. Marabella, assisted by Randy Miller, this Neil Simon-esque romantic comedy was written by Berks County’s own Landon Scott Heimbach, with Elizabeth McClain; additional dialogue by Cynthia Haynes DiSavino.

Reading Community Players is presenting HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS in the main ballroom of the Abraham Lincoln, a Wyndham hotel, November 21 – 24, 2013. Showtimes are Thursday through Saturday at 8:00pm; Sunday at 3:00pm. Come out the weekend before Thanksgiving to enjoy dinner and a show, or have drinks afterwards at this historic Reading landmark. Free and secure parking is available at the hotel; the garage entrance is on Washington St. off Fifth Street.

Ticket prices are $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $8 for students. Reserve your seat by phone by calling (610) 375-9106 or purchase at Brown Paper Tickets. For dinner reservations, call the hotel at (610) 372-3700.

The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, Jr.

Reading Community Players announces their upcoming children’s production of The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley, Jr.!

Lambchop is your ordinary, every day, run-of-the-mill ten-year-old: normal mom and dad, normal little brother, normal life. That’s just the problem…for Stanley, life is too normal. He wants to travel the world, do something amazing, something no one’s ever done before. Careful what you wish for, Stanley!  One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley’s bed comes loose and falls – right on top of Stanley! The next morning, Stanley Lambchop wakes up flat.  In a whirlwind musical travelogue, Stanley – the ultimate exchange student – scours the globe for a solution to his unusual problem. This story is included in many third grade anthologies and is known by many 8 and 9 year olds.

Heading the cast of young actors is Nicholas Panase playing the role of Stanley.  Alex Goshert plays his mother, Pete Clauser as his dad and the littlest Lambchop, Arthur, is played by Sharon BorkeyNina Botvin plays Mrs. Cartero, who acts as the story’s narrator,.  Rounding out the cast are Darian Bornmann, Qwyn Cephus, Joanna Fielding, John Fielding, James Ganster, Reese Ganster, Betsy Lucas, Madison Kemp and Samantha Pinero, who play a variety of comical ensemble roles.

The show, directed by Debbi Silas and assisted by Julia Minotto, opens Friday, August 9th, 2013 and runs two weekends at the playhouse on North 11th Street in Reading, PA.  Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 PM and Sunday shows begin at 3:00 PMTickets are $10.00 and are available by calling the theatre at 610-375-9106 or by visiting our Tickets page.
