JOIN US FOR THE 3RD ANNUAL
Three "neighborhoods" in the county will be celebrated: Harrisburg's Old Eighth Ward, Paxtang, and Steelton. The original production incorporates drama, storytelling, video, music, movement, and audience discussion to tell the stories connected to the diverse communities in each of the sites, including Bethel and Wesley AME churches, Tanner's Alley, the Bethlehem Steel Company, and the "Paxton Boys." The cast of STORIES FROM HOME: dauphin county includes actors who are new to Open Stage, as well as veteran performers. The ensemble includes John Bailey, Nina Beesley, Aaron Bomar, Ferris Evans, Jeremy Patterson, J. C. Payne, and Cassandra Porter. The script was assembled from local primary and secondary historical sources, including churches and historical societies. The cast collaborated with director Anne Alsedek to create scenes and vignettes depicting events dating from the 18th century to the present day. Videographer Morgan Darian has assembled footage of historical images and contemporary interviews. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.
