SHOW & CONCERT SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
MARCH 1 - 3, 8 - 10   Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center presents The Three Musketeers. This adaptation is based on the timeless swashbuckler by Alexandre Dumas.  A tale of heroism, treachery, close escapes, and above all, honor.  In 1625 d'Artagnan sets off to Paris for adventure along with his tomboy younger sister Sabine, who unbeknownst to him ultimately saves the day.  This show features a new seating arrangement in the BlackBox theater ensuring the action is up close and exciting.  Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m and Sunday shows are at 2 p.m.
MARCH 29 - 31, APRIL 5 - 7, 12 - 14   Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center presents Singin' In The Rain.  What a glorious feeling!  A wonderful parody centering around the birth of the 'talkies" filled with great wit, terrific music and dancing that can't be beat!  This ultimate feel-good production is sure to leave audiences singin' and dancin' in the rain!  Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday shows are at 2 p.m.
APRIL 5, 6, 11, 12, 13   The Bobcat Players present the romantic comedy Enchanted April - Spring Show. Dreary London winters in the 1920s have grown unbearable for Lottie Wilton, a bored housewife who longs for more adventure in her predictable life.  When she stumbles upon an advertisement for an Italian castle for rent the entire month of April, she sets out to find a group of women to join her.  Before long she has enlisted another repressed homemaker, a daring socialite and a stodgy, aristocratic widow.  Together they escape rain-weary England for the sun-washed splendor of San Salvatore.  And through their escape they find renewal, redemption and plenty of enchantment as an unlikely band of sisters.  Shows are at the Ed Schaughency Theatre in the Beaver Area Middle School.  All shows are at 7:30 p.m.
APRIL 24  The Beaver Valley Community Concert Association presents The Malpass Brothers, retro traditional country artists with magnetic personalities.  They were Mele Haggard's opening act for many years and give new life to country music.  Their smooth vocal blend and off-the-cuff quips are typical of the legends to which they pay tribute ... Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Merle Haggard and others.  It's an authentic "down-home" entertainment experience!  This show is held at the Beaver Falls Middle School Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
