EPAC to present the charismatic Cabaret

"'Cabaret' at EPAC packs a punch"

Jane Holahan, Lancaster Online

EPAC recommends "Cabaret" for adult audiences

Few Broadway shows possess the alluring appeal of Kander and Ebb’s classic Cabaret! This sensual and romantic tale of the young British dance girl Sally Bowles and the optimistic American writer Cliff Bradshaw is told through their many experiences as they struggle in depression-era Berlin.

"Lavish musical 'Cabaret' entertains and challenges at Ephrata theater"

David Dunkle, Penn Live

Perhaps no other theater in the region is better suited for this type of material than EPAC. Come see for yourself, as the intimate space that is EPAC's Sharadin Bigler Theater is transformed into the German Kit Kat Klub. And don’t worry…we won’t tell mama you came.

Premier! Staged reading of Countenance by Chet Williamson

On the hundredth anniversary of the start of The Great War, Countenance presents an unflinching look at how society welcomes the return of its fragile and damaged heroes. In 1916, the hideously wounded David Hardy returns to London, where his deformities prove too great a barrier for his wife. His old school friend Ted takes him to the solitude of his family lodge, where David tries to accept his new life with the aid of a young housekeeper and Ted's father, a former officer who may be partly responsible for David's injuries. But conflicts and manipulation encroach upon the idyllic surroundings and threaten to destroy old friendships and new loves. This is a wonderful opportunity to see a premier reading of a theatrical work from renowned writer Chet Williamson! Tickets for this concert event are are available online .
