Camphill Village Kimberton Hills Presents The Prince and the Pauper

CVKH Orchestra
1/25/11: Showtime for Friday's show has changed.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills presents The Prince and the Pauper, a musical comedy by Lewis Hardee, February 18-20, 2011.

Directed by Veronika Roemer, The Prince and the Pauper is based on the story by Mark Twain. Prince Edward, son of King Henry XIII, and a poor boy of the slums of London have a chance encounter. They discover that they look very much alike and decided to change clothes “for an hour or two.” The exchange lasts much longer and both boys, as well as everyone around them, discover many new things about life and each other.

The musical is freely based on Twain’s story, making even more fun of stiff royalty and showing the audience that poverty of goods does not mean poverty of heart. The music is a delightful mix of modern show tunes and Elizabethan era songs, with many catchy tunes.

This is the sixth show produced by Roemer, who lives and works in Camphill Kimberton, an intentional community that includes adults with developmental disabilities. Each production features residents of Camphill Kimberton and the wider community. Members of the Kimberton Hills orchestra will provide musical accompaniment of piano and various percussion instruments.

Show times are:
  • Friday, Feb. 18, 2011 – 7 p.m. 3:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb. 19, 2011 – 2:30 and 7 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb. 20, 2011 – 2:30 p.m.

All shows are in Rose Hall. Suggested donations are $12 for adults, $6 for children, and $35 for a family.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is located at 1601 Pughtown Road , Kimberton , Pa.

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
