HERSHEY THEATRE

HERSHEY, PA

 

 

The Community Center Building, designed by C. Emlen Urban, houses this beautiful theatre.  It was built between 1929-1933, dedicated September 1933 and has been a constant draw to theatre goers and architecture lovers alike.

From the imported materials…to the design styles, this building is a virtual feast for the eyes.  The Theatre itself features a “stars and clouds” ceiling which changes from sunset to dusk with the help of small wattage light bulbs. To read in much more detail please check out the Web site. In the “About Hershey Theatre” tab, click “Celebrating 80 Years” from the scroll down menu.

For those architectural  aficionados,  a Spotlight Tour of the theatre and its history is available. Tours take place year round and there is a nominal fee (adults: $8, Children: $6).  Please call (717) 533-6299 for information.

Interesting to note:  Almost 600 skilled workers who were unemployed due to the Great Depression, found work as part of Mr. Hershey’s “Great Building Campaign.”… count the number of lions the architect placed throughout the theater…

Lewis Black The Rant Is Due: Part Deux at Hershey Theatre 8 Dec 2014, 7:00 am

 

LEWIS BLACK

HERSHEY THEATRE

 

 

 

Returning to the Hershey Theatre is Grammy Award winning stand up comedian Lewis Black…

Garnering quite a few titles behind that name: Comedian, playwright, author, social critic and actor; Mr. Black is known for his comedic discordance.  Rants about the ridiculous are his bailiwick, and successfully so!

In his latest tour of Lewis Black The Rant Is Due: Part Deux, he takes on everything and everybody “and anything else that exposes the hypocrisy and madness he sees in the world”….from politics to social media, nothing is sacred (which is also the title of one of the books he has authored, Nothing’s Sacred). He has described his humor as “being on the Titanic every single day and being the only person who knows what is going to happen.”

His educational background is in drama and includes degrees and time spent at University of Maryland,  UNC at Chapel Hill and the Yale School of Drama.

Note: While his performances are hugely funny, they are geared toward an adult audience.

Date: Sunday, January 18, 2015

Show Time: 7:00 PM

Admission: $42.50, $49.50 and $65.00

It would seem the perfect time of year to take a brief time out to thank all our guests and friends for a wonderful year..

We have met those from near and some from very far, who have made us smile and laugh and even shed a tear or two.. we have been touched in so many different ways and been genuinely grateful to have crossed paths..

For all those moments, we are thankful and would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  And, as many do these days, if you are traveling to loved ones…we wish you a safe journey.

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Pennsylvania Farm Show, Harrisburg, PA 17 Nov 2014, 7:00 am

PENNSYLVANIA FARM SHOW

HARRISBURG, PA

A Pennsylvania tradition for nearly one hundred years..99 years in 2015, to be exact. Our State is proud to host the largest indoor agricultural exposition in the nation…over 13,000 competitive exhibits, close to 6,000 animals and an impressive number of commercial exhibits..300 expected..

Housed in 24 acres under roof and spread over 11 buildings, the show rounds up the best of farming innovation, new equipment, education, fun activities and competitions, and all sorts of tasty treats for visitors…and the visitors do come each year.. hundreds of thousands.

No visit would be complete without seeing the annual 1,000 pound butter sculpture, experiencing the now famous sheep to shawl competition or sampling some of the local fare.

There is so much to see and do, it would be difficult to fit it all into one day. And so the show runs a full week, the 2015 show runs from Saturday, January 10, 2015 – Saturday, January 17, 2015. There are those who wonder why an event this huge would be held during a time of year when adverse weather conditions could be a factor..and they usually are! But January is the time of year when farmers are not out working their land…

The official website has an abundance of information, so do visit!
