The party, in Rochelle Freedman’s welcoming garden, begins with music and cool drinks on the lawn.

Then, at 3:30 we explore what makes show biz folks tick with  “Conversation in the Garden” – an informal panel of performing artists on their work and how they (and we) can draw on the creative muse. Panelists: Ryan Hill, standup comic; Jaime Karpovich, vegan TV show personality and blogger (“Save the Kales”); John Meckes, set designer; Rick Neulight, lifelong community theatre buff (ask him about “Ted Mack’s Original Amateur Hour”); and Zeke Zelker, filmmaker. Josh Neth (APT’s Artistic Director) will lob the questions.

Other party entertainment features Josh Neth and Jason Roth in a preview scene from APT’s upcoming True West, Sam Shepard’s play about two estranged brothers.  Plus a short comedy one-act, Sure Thing by David Ives, with Samantha Beedle and Troy Brokenshire.  And a silent auction.

Ticket price includes appetizers, dinner buffet and divine desserts. Cash bar. Rain date: Sunday, September 14. Tickets, $35 in advance; $40, at the door.  The party benefits Allentown Public Theatre.
