PATB Hosting Fundraiser April 15th at the Forge Theatre

Phoenixville Area Time Bank (PATB) has booked a special performance of the Forge Theatre production of Christopher Durang’s hilarious 2013 Tony Award-winning play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike on Sunday, April 15th. Proceeds will benefit PATB and their newest partner, Phoenixville Area Refugee Initiative (PARI).

Playbill’s synopsis of the play reads as follows: Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home in Bucks County, PA, while their sister Masha has been gallivanting around the world as a successful actress. A surprise visit from Masha and her 20-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval as its residents and visitors get swept up in an intoxicating mixture of lust, rivalry, regret, and the sudden possibility of escape.

Phoenixville's Forge Theatre, located at 241 1st Ave, is a wonderful live-performance venue presenting local talent in an intimate setting. Prior to the 2 p.m. performance, doors will open …

Art Exhibit at Phoenix Village

Richard Carlton London, a Chester County photographic artist is exhibiting his works at Phoenix Village in downtown Phoenixville for the first quarter of 2018. The exhibit of modern photography is titled “Window Reflections”.

Ever walked down the street and observe for a brief moment an amazing reflection in the window of a building here in Phoenixville? Of course you have. We all do! Richard Carlton London captures that moment in his unusual photographic moments of reflection. He observes, studies and deconstruct the moment most of us see in a brief glance in our hurried days. London calls his work “pedestrian” because he takes photographs from a pedestrian’s point of view. However the results are unique, colorful, often abstract and above all contemporary. “They are intended for interior spaces where color and conversation are sought. I price it affordably and prefer to print on metal - art should be temporary and recyclable.”
