Live Theater Productions

On Stage in Valley Forge & Montgomery County

The arts come alive in Montco during the month of March in theater productions across the county! Here are a few to view:

Stuart Little at DCP Theatre

STUART LITTLE

Through March 5
DCP Theatre

The charming tail – er, tale – of Stuart Little will bring a smile to DCP Theatre audiences of all ages in this live presentation. For anyone not familiar with the story (as if!), it’s about a mouse who is born into an ordinary New York family, finding adventures both big and small.

THEATERS - PEOPLE'S LIGHT

THE MATCHMAKER

Through March 12
People's Light

This Thornton Wilder play from the 1950s was eventually given a musical treatment and a new title, Hello Dolly!, which is set to be revived on Broadway in 2017 with Bette Midler. The story, which unfolds at breakneck pace at People’s Light, is about a sweet and well-intentioned widow who can’t keep from interfering in the love lives (and business dealings) of those around her.

Tomfoolery

TOMFOOLERY

Through April 2
Act II Playhouse

This revue presents the unusual talent of Tom Lehrer, satiric songwriter from the 1950s and 1960s. His best-known work – tackled a while ago by Daniel Radcliffe on The Graham Norton Show – is “The Elements,” a list of chemicals from the Periodic Table performed lightning-fast song-style. This review at Act II Playhouse, breezes through Lehrer’s unique brand of satire.

Incorruptible

INCORRUPTIBLE

March 10 - 18
Variety Club Recreation Hall, Worcester

Methacton Community Theater presents this wild farce in a two-week run that relies heavily on the talented cast’s goofy-yet-precise sense of comic timing. The story involves a French monastery that has hit financial difficulties. No bones about it, the solution they devise is hilarious.

The Laramie Project

THE LARAMIE PROJECT

March 10-26
Steel River Playhouse

This drama at Steel River Playhouse uses the citizens of Laramie, Wyoming, to tell the tragic tale of Matthew Shepard, a 21 year-old student who was the victim of a fatal beating characterized as a hate crime. The author interviewed more than 200 locals, resulting in a compelling multi-view account of the horror. As staged, it is a compelling and moving theatrical experience.
