A Pennsylvania Youth Theatre production of Beauty and the Beast was performed at the Ice House in Bethlehem and featured five Moravian students: Kyara Maeding ’26, Alicia Gordon ’24, Sofia Eckman ’23, Mackenzie Purinton ’27 and Rowan Taylor ’25.
Fifth-grader Rowan Taylor noted, “In the category of the performing arts there is dance, singing, and acting. I love performing because I enjoy the performing arts!”
Fifth grade traveled to the Ice House on May 14th to enjoy all of their friends’ hard work and dedication in this captivating show.
Fourth-grader Parker Boschen was in the Wizard of Oz at the Producer’s Club in New York City. His role as the Cowardly Lion was a theatrical hit this May. He will also be performing in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs this August.
Fifth-grader Colin Moore is currently rehearsing for Ragtime, a musical based on E.L. Doctorow’s 1975 novel. The show will run June 13 – July 1 on the Main Stage on the campus of DeSales University as part of the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. Colin plays the Little Boy (Edgar), who serves as a narrator in this early 20th century New York story. The musical celebrates the American experiences of an upper-class homemaker, an indefatigable Jewish immigrant, and a strong, young Harlem musician—all united by their courage and their pursuit of the American dream. Tickets are now available.
