“The Crucible” Now Playing At The Tri-County Performing Arts Center, Downtown Pottstown

THE CRUCIBLE at the Tri-County Performing Arts Center, Thursdays through Sundays, now through March 20th.  Log on to www.tripac.org for tickets

A Tony Award Winner for Best Play, this exciting drama about the Puritan purge of witchcraft in Salem is both a gripping historical play and a timely parable of our contemporary society. The story focuses upon a young farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife’s arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie – and it is here that the monstrous course of bigotry and deceit is terrifyingly depicted.

Parental guidance suggested due to themes about relationships

Join us for the 2nd weekend of this powerful performance.

THE CRUCIBLE (Mar 3 – 20) Thur. @ 7:30 pm/ Fri. @ 8:00 pm / Sat. @ 8:00 pm / Su. @ 3:00 pm

Talkback with Cast: Sundays March 13th

Pottstown Planning Commission To Get Another New Member

Long-time Pottstown political figure, Karen Weil has resigned her seat on the Pottstown Planning Commission effective March 1st.  Karen felt it was time to step down after many years of service.

It appears this newest vacancy will be filled by one of the four remaining applicants who submitted resumes when Thomas Hylton was up for reappointment last month.  Technically, Mr. Hylton would be included in the four remaining applicants for Ms. Weil’s seat.

Last month, Andrew Kefer was unanimously appointed to the Planning Commission to fill Mr. Hylton’s seat when Mr. Hylton was not reappointed by Borough Council.  Mr. Kefer is a Chestnut Street resident and neighbor of Thomas Hylton.
