Pennsylvania Centre Stage, in its 24th season of professional theatre, will present "The Apple Tree," May 26 through June 7, in the Citizens Bank Theatre, at the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center, 146 S. Allen St., State College. Visit http://live.psu.edu/stilllife/2076 for a photo preview.
Directed by Richard Sabellico, "The Apple Tree," by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, is three witty, tuneful, and utterly charming fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek one-act musicals about men, women, and a little thing called temptation.
Sabellico directed last season's "Camelot", as well as countless New York City and regional productions, and has performed on Broadway in "Annie," "Dames at Sea," and "Gypsy." The cast of 16 includes Richard Roland, who starred on Broadway as Jimmy in "Thoroughly Modern Millie;" Erin Davie, who recently won a Theatre World Award for her performance as young Edith Bouvier Beale (Young Edie) in Broadway's "Grey Gardens;" and Raymond Sage, who performed on Broadway in "Beauty and the Beast," "Titanic," and "Camelot," prior to joining the Penn State Musical Theatre faculty as a singing teacher.
