Experience comedy, dance, theatre, and film, all in one weekend. The Central PA Theatre and Dance Festival takes place June 21-23, 2019 in Downtown State College and the Reynolds Mansion is only 9 miles away. There are more than 100 activities planned including free community dance parties, Happy Valley’s Got Talent, Rocky Horror Picture Show dress up and sing-along, and Shakespeare in the Plaza. Additionally, you can learn how to develop a strong stage persona and discover the art of creating a unique cabaret performance in “Come Do a Cabaret” with Roxy Arrojo and Bruce Clough from New York. Other workshops include poetry readings, prop and costume making, new play reading series, and more. We invite you to discover all of the theatre and dance that Central PA has to offer. Please attend as many performances as you can in this three-day festival which is in its second year. The “PreVue” brochure is currently available online and the full agenda will be available shortly.
We are excited to add another wonderful summer festival to the already long list of things to do here in Happy Valley. We also just learned of several Centre Stage performances in June and July. There will be three shows: “The Last Day”, “A Year with Frog and Toad”, and “Albatross”. You can find show dates and times at www.theatre.psu.edu or Facebook: pennstatecentrestage.
The Reynolds Mansion is the perfect place to return to after your theatre and dance experiences. We offer beautifully decorated and fully air-conditioned guest rooms, a three-course gourmet breakfast, and many other wonderful amenities. You’ll not only be greeted by Tricia and Mike, but you’ll meet Tony and Nia, the owners’ two dogs. There are complimentary brandy and chocolates in the Snuggery – a room on the first floor that you’ll want to sit and relax in. There is also a 9-foot pool table in the Billiards Room if you’d rather shoot a game. Please visit our website to see all of the eight luxurious guest rooms.
