Stage Right kicks off 20th anniversary season


The community is invited to join the fun as Stage Right School for the Performing Arts and Professional Theatre Company kicks off its 20th anniversary season.

A free “Celebration of Art, Family and Friendship” will be held from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. July 21 at St. Clair Park in Greensburg. Activities include family yoga by Satya at 10 a.m. and two “Books Come Alive” performances from Stage Right’s library outreach program, “Olivia the Ballerina” at noon and “The Magic School Bus” at 1:30 p.m.

There will be free dance classes, performances by The Stage Right Sensations and Inspirations and previews of Stage Right’s summer camp shows, “Disney’s The Lion King Jr.” and “Sweeney Todd,” which will be performed July 27-29 at Greensburg Garden and Civic Center.

At 6:30 p.m., Stage Right Artistic Director Tony Marino will announce details of Stage Right’s 2018-2019 20th anniversary professional season, which will open Sept. 21-23 with performances of “Shrek the Musical” at The Palace Theatre, Greensburg.

Throughout the day, there will be arts and crafts and a Shrek coloring table for kids by Greensburg Hempfield Area Library, as well as face painting, food trucks, McFeeley’s ice cream/shaved ice, games and appearances by Fiona and Shrek.

Renata Marino, Savannah Bruno, Tony Marino, Nick Lenz and Ben Pimental also will give performances.

“We say we are changing lives through theater and I believe it,” said JoAnne Salvatore, Stage Right’s general manager. “We give kids a safe place to go and the confidence that comes with performing.”

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
