The Delaware County Symphony hosts free Instrument Petting Zoo

The Delaware County Symphony in collaboration with the Haverford Township Free Library welcome all families to a free Instrument Petting Zoo for children. Nine classically trained musicians will explain and demonstrate  to the children how their specific instruments:  Flute, Violin, Viola, Bassoon, Cello, Oboe, French Horn, Bass, and Clarinet, individually sound and are uniquely used in classical music to make a full symphonic sound.

The program will conclude with an ensemble performance of a popular composition so the children may hear the sounds of the instruments performing together. Saturday, Feb. 24 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm in the upper level children’s department. The program is free and open to the public.

February brings ‘The Marvelous Wonderettes’

Featuring the top hits of the 1950s and ’60s, the hit musical “The Marvelous Wonderettes” is a musical trip down memory lane to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts!

“Everyone has memories of high school prom…the laughs, the music, the love, the heartache,” says Servant Stage Artistic Director, Wally Calderon. “We have done our best to pack all of those feelings into two hours. This show is packed with hit music that standing alone makes you just want to smile. But we have also worked hard to surround the music with a true and honest story of young love, friendship, humor, and what happens when best friends drift apart over the next 10 years.”

The show will be double cast, with eight local favorites playing the the four roles. The cast features Brittany Adair Beitzel, Aimee Bohner, Amanda Holsinger, Nicole Horton, Kayla Klase, Kat Prickett, Jennifer Wolcott and Kelsey Zimmerman.

“Wonderettes is the perfect show to remember your past or introduce a new generation to the wonderful music of the 1950’s and 60’s!” says Prickett, who plays the role of Cindy Lou. “I am having an absolute blast singing these great, fun songs, with super talented ladies. The vocals are tight, the acting on point, and the comedy…you won’t want to miss the comedy!”

In keeping with Servant Stage’s mission to make professional theatre accessible to everyone in the community, all performances are offered as Pay-What-You-Will. Performances run February 16th through March 4th (Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 3:00pm and 7:30pm, and Sundays at 3:00pm) at the Emerald Foundation Community Campus, 2120 Oregon Pike, Lancaster.
