Our Whiz Kids this week are North Penn High School Theatre's Erica Tolton, Dani Corradetti and Justin Dumke, who, as a team, took first place at the recent Shakespeare Festival High School Competition
Erica Tolton, Dani Corradetti and Justin Dumke know their destinies are not held in the stars, but in themselves. Shakespeare, whose quote is paraphrased above, would be proud of this week's trio of Montgomeryville-Lansdale Patch Whiz Kids. To be or not to be wasn’t a question at the recent Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival high school competition at DeSales University in Center Valley. The students in Andrea Roney’s theatre class were either going to win or lose at the festival. They came, they performed, they conquered first place as a team for the highest total combined scores. For all four years of the annual festival, a North Penn High School theatre team has won one of the top three spots. North Penn is the only school to have …

A smart comedy without contempt for the audience
The satirical newspaper "The Onion" ran an article a few years ago with the brilliant headline "Rural Nebraskan Not Sure He Could Handle Frantic Pace Of Omaha."

Helms is Tim Lippe, an insurance salesman who appears to have never set foot outside of his small Wisconsin hometown. He doesn't smoke, doesn't drink and isn't a …

Get a taste of Broadway for the younger set.
It’s that time of week once again for a little Mom Talk. Patch takes the chance to inform our readers: moms, dads, grandparents and family friends alike, to inform you of something new each week. This week, we take a question from a reader in Norristown. Dear Patch: I want my kids to have a little bit of culture in their lives. I don’t think they are quite ready for a Broadway show, but I’d love to work more live theater into their routine. Do you know of any good spots in Montgomery County to have them experience that? I feel like a trip downtown might be too much, and at their ages (6 and 10), I am not sure what levels would be best. Any suggestions? Sincerely, Janet M., of Norristown Thanks Janet for the question. There are a …
