Upside Allentown Artist in Residency Program Continues into August

Allentown Public Theatre is proud, through the help of Upside Allentown, to have been able to bring Wendy, An Adventure in Neverland and accompanying workshops to several additional locations in the Jordan Heights neighborhood! We thank our hosts, Grace Episcopal Church, Sacred Heart Church, and  Union Baptist Church.

APT’s final summer performance of this new and original take on the story of Peter Pan is Thursday, August 17, at 5:30pm in the Allentown Art Museum as part of Third Thursday, when admission to the Museum is free to all.
