    - The Mersey Beatles are childhood friends who grew up in Liverpool. They had a record collection in common. The Beatles records were always sitting on the very top of that pile…& they still are to this day. Steven Howard, Mark Bloor & Brian Ambrose attended secondary school together in the city. David Howard and Steven Howard are cousins. Tony Cook, another friend from Liverpool, is the 5th Mersey Beatle. His keyboard skills make the hits of the later years come to life. The Mersey Beatles love of Beatles music shines through in every performance & together they capture the Beatles sound 100% live.

  • | 8:00pm - 10:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, musical theater, arts, Theatre Harrisburg, Big Fish
    - Theatre Harrisburg is delighted to present the Broadway musical, BIG FISH, April 29 - May 14, 2016 at The Whitaker Center, 222 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA. The production is very generously sponsored by Capital BlueCross, The Shearer Family Fund of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities on behalf of R. Scott Shearer
    and the Cultural Enrichment Fund.

    BIG FISH is a new Broadway musical featuring music and lyrics by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family, The Wild Party) and a new book by esteemed screenwriter John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest... and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him - most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father's epic tales.

    Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre - for an experience that's richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

    THE STORY: Big Fish tells the larger-than-life tale of Edward Bloom, a man who leads an extraordinary life-according to the stories he tells his son, Will. But Will, who is getting married and expecting a child of his own, doesn't think there's any truth to the extravagant tales his father tells about meeting witches, kissing mermaids or joining the circus. He doesn't even believe the story of how his father proposed to his mother, Sandra, in a field full of daffodils. When Edward's health begins to decline, Will visits his father and tries one last time to find out the truth behind the tall tales. As Edward and Will's relationship becomes increasingly strained, Will must decide whether to accept his father's wild stories as fact or risk losing him completely.

  • - York Little Theatre will present ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST, by Dale
    Wasserman, in The Bon Ton Studio April 29-May 1 & May 5-8. Ken Kesey’s novel, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” appeared in the early 1960’s, in the middle of
    Vietnam war protests, the civil rights movement, and the start of women's’
    liberation. The book touched a nerve. It was an instant best seller and was made
    first into a play and then into a multiple Oscar winning movie.

    Directed by Jack Hartman, the story focuses on Randle P. McMurphy, who chooses to
    serve a short sentence in a mental institution rather than one in a prison. This,
    he learns, was a mistake. Quickly, he takes over the ward and accomplishes what
    the medical profession has been unable to do; helping fellow patients improve
    their condition through unorthodox antics. He clashes with the head nurse Ratched, who resents his successes and retaliates by abusing her authority.

    The cast features David Kloser as Randle P. McMurphy, Jaci Keagy as Nurse Ratched,Bob Haag as Chief Bromden, Rogan Motter as Billy Bibbit, Rob Allison as Dale Harding, Bill Jones as Cheswick, Jim Clark as Dr. Spivey, Rich Mehrenberg as
    Martini, Chris McGuinness as Scanlon, Kevin Wilcox as Ruckly, Andy Trout, Andrew
    Smith, and Frank Jarrell as Aide Warren, Aide Williams and Aide Turkle, Kelly
    Warren as Nurse Flinn and Angel Pritts and Marisa Hoover round out the cast as the fun loving prostitutes Candy Starr and Sandra.

    Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays and 3pm on
    Sundays. Patrons can save $2 off regular admission price if they purchase tickets
    prior to opening night. Group sales are available. Go to ylt.org or call
    854-5715 for advance tickets and more information. Tickets will be available at
    the door one hour before the performance, if available.

    - The all-new Harrisburg Marathon will take you on a thrilling journey through beautiful Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Our fast, flat, newly-designed course is a Boston qualifier that’s sure to give plenty of runners a great PR!

    We’ve completely reimagined the Harrisburg Marathon event in 2015. We envision our Marathon as a “mini-Boston” — Second Street lined with people cheering, music playing, the energy of what has been dubbed “Restaurant Row” electrified as runners of our completely redesigned course round their way onto Second Street towards the new finish line at Locust.

    We completely redesigned our Marathon course so we could better integrate the city into it. We’ve added new sections that showcase some of Harrisburg’s landmarks like Fort Hunter. We’ve introduced two scenic bridge crossings to integrate our friends on the west shore of the Susquehanna. The crescendo of the new Marathon though, was to move the final mile and finish line right down Second Street to Locust Street —the epicenter of the downtown scene.
    Not running? Come to the Downtown Marathon Red Block Party!

    Don’t miss the first ever Marathon Red Block Party! We redesigned the Harrisburg Marathon course to integrate the event with the community that hosts it. Celebrate our “mini-Boston” and cheer on finishers in a huge downtown celebration!

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

  • | 8:00pm - 10:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, musical theater, arts, Theatre Harrisburg, Big Fish
    - Theatre Harrisburg is delighted to present the Broadway musical, BIG FISH, April 29 - May 14, 2016 at The Whitaker Center, 222 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA. The production is very generously sponsored by Capital BlueCross, The Shearer Family Fund of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities on behalf of R. Scott Shearer
    and the Cultural Enrichment Fund.

    BIG FISH is a new Broadway musical featuring music and lyrics by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family, The Wild Party) and a new book by esteemed screenwriter John August (Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed film directed by Tim Burton, BIG FISH centers on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to its fullest... and then some! Edward's incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him - most of all, his devoted wife Sandra. But their son Will, about to have a child of his own, is determined to find the truth behind his father's epic tales.

    Overflowing with heart, humor and spectacular stagecraft, BIG FISH is an extraordinary new Broadway musical that reminds us why we love going to the theatre - for an experience that's richer, funnier and BIGGER than life itself.

    THE STORY: Big Fish tells the larger-than-life tale of Edward Bloom, a man who leads an extraordinary life-according to the stories he tells his son, Will. But Will, who is getting married and expecting a child of his own, doesn't think there's any truth to the extravagant tales his father tells about meeting witches, kissing mermaids or joining the circus. He doesn't even believe the story of how his father proposed to his mother, Sandra, in a field full of daffodils. When Edward's health begins to decline, Will visits his father and tries one last time to find out the truth behind the tall tales. As Edward and Will's relationship becomes increasingly strained, Will must decide whether to accept his father's wild stories as fact or risk losing him completely.

    Tickets for this moving, delightful and inspirational musical are available by calling the Whitaker Center Box Office at 717.214.2787. Tickets are: orchestra $35, Mezzanine $29, Balcony $20 and a Family 5-pack is only $100. Special group rates available for 10 or more.
