Martello, Lee Minora, and Ruby Wolf. The expanded six-week performance schedule opened Thursday, November 8 and runs through Sunday, December 16, 2018. In his notes for the first production of “The Heir Apparent” at Shakespeare Theatre Company, David Ives shared his first impression of his source material: “I had never heard of Regnard. Yet...I needed only a single reading to know I had to take on the piece. The off-color jokes made me howl even while I marveled at Regnard’s facility at rendering them in graceful yet conversational couplets.” Focusing on the exuberant and hilarious struggle that breaks out when the family of a wealthy geezer gets wind of his imminent demise, “The Heir Apparent” is Ives’ second self-described “translaptation,” following his similar treatment of Pierre Corneille’s “La Menteur” into “The Liar,” which was produced by the Lantern in 2012. Ives’ modern translations of classic French comedies have become one of his many calling cards as a writer, including “The School for Lies,” adapted See “The Heir Apparent” at Lantern Theater Company page 4

Photo/John Flak s “This Is The Week That Is” plays through the month of December, 1812 Productions will present a special two-night-only staged reading of David Sedaris’ “The Santaland Diaries.” A modern comedy classic about the author’s time as a Macy’s Christmas elf, this special event stars David Bardeen in his 1812 Productions debut.

Museum Makes the Season Merry and Bright with Holiday House Tour and Winter Arts Festival resented by the Delaware Art Museum Council, the Holiday House Tour returns for its 31st year on Saturday, December 8, 2018. Beginning at 10 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m., the self-guided tour features six spectacular homes, decorated for the holidays, and especially chosen for the theme “Celebrating Timeless Classics.” The Museum Council enlisted Dewson Construction, Period Architecture, and Porter Construction to identify homes built for today’s style of living and with designs that truly make them the new “grand homes” of the Brandywine Valley. These six gracious, relaxed, family-oriented homes will surely stand the test of time. The six area houses featured on the tour are all within a short drive of the Museum: • Elegant Highlands Classic – on Kentmere Parkway. • New English Country Manor – in Greenville. • Fox Hollow – this beautifully appointed home of one of the Tour’s sponsors. • Surprise Prairie Style – residence set among the Brandy-

P

wine Valley rolling hills. • Tranquil Retreat – minimalist in decoration yet so inviting and restful. • Chester County Hillside Estate – where attention to architectural detail and spacious rooms and vistas entice us to linger. Proceeds from 2018 Holiday House Tour will support the Delaware Art Museum’s vision to connect people to art and to each other. As part of that effort, the Red Apple Fund serves over a thousand local children each year by supporting vibrant educational programs and activities which include immersive class visits, art classes, and art camps. The Holiday House Tour will coincide with the Museum’s free annual Winter Arts Festival (December 7 & 8). Shop for holiday gifts from 18 regional artisans, listen to festive music performed by local choirs, and enjoy the Museum’s seasonal decorations. Winter-themed art projects will be available for children and their families. Beverages and snacks by Toscana See Holiday House Tour and Winter Arts Festival on page 5

PAFA Offers Shopping Opportunities this Holiday Season and into the New Year

Continued from front page

from Molière’s “The Misanthrope,” and Georges Feydeau’s “A Flea in Her Ear.” Other major works include “Venus in Fur,” a 2012 Tony Award nominee for Best Play, and “New Jerusalem, The Interrogation of Baruch de Spinoza at Talmud Torah Congregation: Amsterdam, July 27, 1656,” which won the prestigious Hull-Warriner Award and was produced by the Lantern in 2011 and 2012. “The Heir Apparent is a modern take on commedia dell’arte, which since Roman times has walked a fine line between entertainment and political subversion,” said Lantern Artistic Director Charles McMahon. “Ives’ great gift is showing a seamless elision point between the struggles of the rising middle class of the Ancien Régime and modern America. The conventions of the commedia provide just enough distance for us to get a bit of perspective, but the social climbers, greedy merchants, entitled offspring, and desperate underclass in this play are in action every day across the gleaming cites of modern America.” “There is much to recognize on stage in this play,” said “The Heir Apparent” director M. Craig Getting. “An aging man dictates the terms of his estate. A mother secures the best possible future for her daughter. Young lovers fight to be together. Servants plot and scheme to undermine their bosses. And a lawyer just tries to do his job. What makes this play sing is the way that David Ives – and Regnard before him – dials all of these understandable human impulses up to eleven. Time and money are two of the show’s biggest touchstones. How much time (or money) do we have left? How much more money (or time) can I have? Why am I running out of money and time so quickly? These are big questions, so why not laugh at them?” The Lantern delves into the world of “The Heir Apparent” on its Lantern Searchlight blog, available online at www.lanterntheater.org/searchlight. Published articles will explore the wild and witty life of Jean-François Regnard, commedia dell’arte’s influence on classic French comedy, modern approaches to Molière, the French aristocracy and the rise of the merchant class, and the ingeniously inventive David Ives. New content will be added throughout the production’s run. Tickets for “The Heir Apparent” are $28 - $43 and are available online at www.lanterntheater.org or by calling the Lantern Box Office at 215-829-0395. Student tickets are $15 in advance; $10 student rush tickets are available ten minutes before curtain with valid ID. Discounts are also available for theater industry professionals ($10 in advance or at the door), seniors 65 and up, groups of 10 or more, and U.S. military personnel. Four-play series and flex packs are also available for the rest of the Lantern’s 25th anniversary season, starting at $108. Lantern Theater Company is located at St. Stephen’s Theater, 10th & Ludlow Sts. in Center City Philadelphia.

Youth Suicide Parent Resource Program

Youth Suicide is a major health problem facing the youth in our nation, state and communities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2017 Youth Risk Behavioral Survey over ONE out of every FOURTEEN young people in our nation attempted suicide in the previous 12 months. Yet, most people are unaware of the danger suicide presents for our young people. The Parent Resource Program (PRP) is a webbased program designed specifically for parents; however, the information provided is an excellent resource for educators, coaches, youth workers, other adults, and young people. The Jason Foundation (JFI) believes that awareness and education are key elements to preventing youth suicide. The main focus of the PRP is to provide information that will assist parents to recognize changes in behaviors that may indicate suicidal thoughts and know what to do to help an at-risk child. The PRP provides: Youth Suicide Statistics, Common Nicotine Anonymous Meeting Suicide Myths, Signs of Concern, Higher Risk Groups, Risk Factors & Elevated Risk Factors, What a Parent Can This ongoing 12-step recovery program meets every Tuesday from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. at Lankenau Medical Do, Do’s and Don’ts, Resources for Assistance, Parent and Community Center, 100 E. Lancaster Road, Wynnewood, PA, Parking Lot “A” – Annenberg Building, Knorr Conference Seminar. For information, visit the Parent Resource Program website: Room #102, 1st floor. The only requirement is a desire to stop using nicotine. No dues or fees. Call Milton for http://prp.jasonfoundation.com/. details: 215-370-9955.

Renaissance Noël is a joyous musical journey through centuries-old European folk songs, carols, madrigals

and motets—many of which are still sung and beloved today. Our audience will travel back in time and enjoy hauntingly beautiful Christmas classics like O Come Emmanuel and Lo How a Rose, as well as glorious music of the season by renowned composers such as Michael Praetorius, Orlando di Lasso and Johann Pachelbel. Renaissance Noël is also a feast for the eyes: the professional musicians of the Vox Renaissance Consort are bedecked in beautiful High Renaissance attire. And every VoxAmaDeus concert is easy on the pocketbook!” Advance purchase of tickets by mail or online are $25 for general admission, $20 for seniors, and $10 for children and students.

Also, VoxAmaDeus does not card its patrons, but uses the honor system. If you look 65-ish, or like a student, that’s good enough for VoxAmaDeus! Come and enjoy this holiday treat!

The toys take Michael (P.J. Schweizer) on an adventure in Storybook Musical Theatre’s production of “Adventures in Toyland.” torybook Musical Theatre, the Abington, PA-based professional Equity children’s theatre company, presents the original play “Adventures in Toyland.” The production will run from December 12 through December 30, 2018 (no shows 12/15, 12/16, 12/17, 12/24 or 12/25) at the Gratz College Theater, Old York Road and Melrose Avenue, in Melrose Park, PA. Tickets are $14 for children and $16 for adults. For reservations or information, call 215659-8550 or visit www.storybookmusical.org. “Adventures in Toyland” is written and directed by Storybook’s Artistic Director, Patricia Goldberg, with music and lyrics by Jeff Reim. This creative tale tells the story of how four extraordinary toys come to life to help a young boy face his fears, build his confidence, and make his dreams come to life. The play opens late one night as young Michael, who awakes from a bad dream, runs into his playroom so no one will hear him crying. Rag Doll, Captain Combat, Pirate Pete, and Princess Ballerina Belle hearing his cries decide to come to life and help Michael. They encourage him to use his imagination to travel to new places, discover new things, and confront his fears, all without ever leaving the playroom. Together, the five explore the jungles of Africa, sail the high seas, skyrocket to the moon, and auto race back to the playroom. Along the way, Michael saves the Rag Doll from charging rhinos, helps Pirate Pete bury his treasure, sings and dances with the Man on the Moon, and manages to get everyone back to his playroom safely before the new day dawns. Throughout his adventures, Michael learns that he can be anything he wants to be just by using his imagination and believing in himself. This fun-filled production features, Emily Cheney, of Medford Lakes, NJ. Returning to the Storybook stage as Princess Ballerina Belle, Cheney was last seen as Peach, the shoemaker’s wife, in “Elves and the Shoemaker.” Cheney’s other regional credits include performances at Walnut Street Theatre, New Candlelight Theatre, and the Delaware Shakespeare Festival. Making his Storybook debut is Nathan Landis Funk, of Philadelphia, PA, playing Captain Combat. Funk has numerous credits including the PA Renaissance Faire, 11th Hour Theatre Company, and Walnut Street Theatre.

Goldberg, who was just seen as Princess Sapphira in “Aladdin,” has appeared at Olney Theatre Center in Maryland as well as Broadway Theater of Pitman, Bristol Riverside, and City Theatre Company. Chris McCollum, of Philadelphia, PA, is returning to the Storybook stage after playing the Genie in “Aladdin.” McCollum’s other regional credits include the Paper Mill Playhouse, Media Theatre, and 11th Hour Theatre Company. In the role of Michael is P.J. Schweizer, of Doylestown, PA.
