Popcorn Hat Players ON TOUR!
All shows performed by Popcorn Hat Players run from 30-45 minutes in length, and are appropriate for preschool ages up to 6th grade. They are also great family shows, because parents and older brothers and sisters love the shows as much as the youngsters do!
Gamut Theatre is Central PA’s only professional classical theatre and has been entertaining audiences throughout the Susquehanna Valley since 1993. Gamut performs a full season of mainstage plays at Gamut Classic Theatre, located on the 3rd floor of Strawberry Square in downtown Harrisburg, and produces the wildly popular “Free Shakespeare in the Park” each June in Reservoir Park, Harrisburg. Created by the husband-and-wife team of Clark and Melissa Nicholson, this innovative and energetic troupe consists of seven full-time core company members and tours throughout the eastern United States from Connecticut through South Carolina, performing quality productions, teaching companion workshops, and conducting educational residencies reaching over 30,000 people each year. In addition to the year-round core company, Gamut highlights the talents of many other professional actors and artists through the production of its mainstage plays.
Gamut Theatre’s goal is to present quality, professional theatrical productions of the plays of William Shakespeare and other thematically classic works for the cultural enrichment of Pennsylvania’s Capital Region and beyond. Our pledge is to produce innovative, accessible theatre and to provide a community outreach program that educates, entertains and inspires.
