Forge Theatre Presents "The Mystery of Irma Vep"

Lord Edgar takes a new wife after his first wife meets her untimely demise in the jaws of a werewolf. But ... is his first wife really dead? What’s the secret known only to the one-legged butler? And who is Irma Vep anyway? The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam, a deliciously funny tribute to Gothic melodrama, opens January 8 at Forge Theatre in Phoenixville. The script bristles with horror-movie themes and boasts a large cast of quirky characters. But here's the twist: all the characters are played by two actors, who race through a breathtaking stampede of costume changes to bring the story to life. Performances are January 8, 9, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at 8pm; January 17 at 2pm; at Forge Theater, 241 First Avenue, Phoenixville. Tickets are $12; ages 18 and under, $10. For reservations, call 610-935-1920. For more information, http://forgetheatre.org/.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
