Lincoln Park Students Excited Over New Series of Shows For 2017-18 Season

On April 28, the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center made an announcement about their new series of shows coming up next season, beginning on October 6th with Mary Poppins.

Student reception was highly positive during the announcement, and Beaver County Radio spoke to a few students about the new series. Jordan Walker announced her joy for the new shows coming to Lincoln Park, because of the experience it will bring for actors and audience alike…

 

Meanwhile, the challenges of such a new repertoire include different types of material, as discussed by LP student Nick Hermick…

 

Now you’d think that doing 8 different shows in the short amount of time would be hectic and difficult for the actors involved. But according to Noah Plinick, the process is actually quick and smooth…
