Hello, my name is Amy Latchaw and I am the director of the Education Wing at the Harrisburg Christian Performing Arts Center located in Middletown, Pa. We are an educational theater that serves hundreds of students and families from Cumberland, Dauphin, York, Lancaster, Perry and Juniata counties. The mission of our organization is to make Jesus Christ known back-stage, on-stage and off-stage.
Tickets are now on sale for our 42nd annual Passion Play, "The Broken Beautiful," playing at HCPAC March 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. and March 29 at 2:30 p.m. The story parallels Christ's journey to the cross with the modern-day story of Tucker, a young boy who loses his military father in the war in Afghanistan.
The young cast of our passion play, "The Broken Beautiful" will host a community outreach to share Christ with our community on Saturday, March 21, from 9:30-11 a.m. The day will include an egg scramble, crafts, games and a special preview from "The Broken Beautiful" cast. We need YOU to help make our "Easter Explosion" a success!
For this summer we have decided to focus our resources on the exciting final show of this season, "Mary Poppins", instead of starting a Summer I Company Show. This decision was made due to the limited selection of show titles available at this time which meet our performance standards and to staff work loads. We encourage all performers seventh grade through adult to come out for "Mary Poppins" auditions Wednesday, May 6, at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 9, at 9 a.m. The show will be directed by Nanette Kimmel and will run July 24-26 and 31 as well as Aug. 1-2. Hope to see you there!
Congratulations, everyone! Shrek the Musical JR is going to be a very strong ensemble piece with such an incredibly gifted group of artists! We can’t wait to begin the rehearsal process. Please remember that our first rehearsal is Sat., Feb. 7, beginning with the Mandatory Actor/Parent/Guardian Orientation from 2-3PM. You will receive the Informational Packet, all paperwork and forms, as well as the schedule. The Full Company rehearsal will conclude at 6PM. Everyone is encouraged to bring a labeled bottle of water, a snack, pencil and dance shoes (if you already own a pair).
