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: 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; plus some of your faves from Allentown Public Theatre.  Josh Neth (APT’s Artistic Director) will lob the questions.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOther entertainment features Josh Neth and Jason Roth (shown here) in a preview scene from APT’s upcoming True West, Sam Shepard’s play about two estranged brothers.    And a silent auction with art, handmade jewelry, gift baskets, celebrity-autographed items and more.

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