Editor's Note from Susan Richman: Once again the homeschool Encore! drama group in Central PA is putting on a major production, and they've also gotten great press coverage already in the Patriot News out of Harrisburg. Our best wishes on this musical! I know that the whole cast and support team of countless other students and parents have put in hours and hours and hours of dedicated work!
If you've never been to one of Encore's main stage productions, you're in for a treat. I'm still amazed after seven years of involvement! This year's show, set in St. Louis at the time of the 1904 World's Fair, is fast-moving with familiar songs, lively dances, and memorable characters. I recommend it for anyone from age 5 - 105!
Tickets available at www.showtix4u.com for the April 5, 6 and 7 performances.
