June’s Ideal Date Night: The Game of Love and Chance This classic all-out comedy romp asks: “Are you in love with the right person? How do you know?” at Hedgerow Theatre edgerow Theatre’s production of Pierre de Marivaux’s The Game of Love and Chance, directed by Dan Hodge and starring Hedgerow’s corps of Acting Fellows in their final appearances, is the perfect entertainment for the month that’s filled with weddings: are you in love with the right person? How do you know? According to Hodge, this 300-year old play, which starts performances on June 5, is “full of heart and vitality that is almost astonishing. It’s incredible that the love and charm of three centuries ago was as alive and thrilling and confusing as it is for us today, and that can teach something to all us who love… or hope to.” Hodge explains more about the appeal of what he calls Marivaux’s “perfect” comedy: “I love comedies where people have something to learn. The main couple have to decide if they can defy the societal expectation that comes with their wealth and station in order to follow their hearts. They wrestle with whether you should marry who you love rather than who you’re supposed to. And who hasn’t wrestled with that question?” The seemingly simple plot involves a wealthy young woman whose parents have promised in marriage to a man she’s never met. Fiercely independent, she comes up with a secret scheme to learn the truth behind what her parents have told her. As it happens, the young man has the exact same plan. The result is a farcical tangle of young would-be lovers and their respective servants who get caught up in mistaken identities, class warfare, and high comedy as they decide whether it’s worth risking one’s heart… and more… in the game of love. Artistic Director Jared Reed says he added Marivaux’s rarely-produced gem to Hedgerow’s season because, “the characters are so playful, and the room for joyous invention is boundless as a bunch of featherbrains try to get out of a maze of their own making. Shaping broad comedy to live alongside gentle romance is my favorite kind of entertainment, and Dan is doing just that with our Acting Fellows in their swan-song performances at Hedgerow.” The Hedgerow Acting Fellows who are completing their time with Hedgerow in The Game of Love and Chance are Kevin Aoussou as Dorante, Julianne Schaub as Lisette, and Chris Waters as Mario. They’re joined by Susan Wefel, a Hedgerow Company Member at Hedgerow for 40 years, as Madame Orgon, and Fellowship Alumnus Mark Swift as Harlequin. The Hedgerow Acting Fellowship is a training program for young actors who spend a year at Hedgerow working in nearly every show, learning from and performing alongside the veteran artists in the Hedgerow Company. The Game of Love and Chance features set designs by Sebastian Kearney and costumes by Elizabeth Hanson. The show runs June 5 - 23 at Hedgerow Theatre, located at 64 Rose Valley Road, in Rose Valley, PA. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets range from $20 to $37, with some discounts available. Buy tickets by calling Hedgerow at 610-565-4211 or clicking on Hedgerow Theatre is the oldest repertory theater in the United States. Founded in 1923, it’s been a magnet for some of the most influential forces in theater and performance, including Edward Albee, Eugene O’Neill, George Bernard Shaw, Bertolt Brecht, Henrik Ibsen, and more recently, Keanu Reeves.

Blood cannot be manufactured. Healthy, volunteer blood donors are the only source of blood and platelets for those in need of transfusions. Volunteer blood donors of all types – particularly type O – are needed to help maintain a stable blood supply this summer.

Dan found a group of reenactors, encouraged the local council to loan emergency vehicles, and even persuaded Oscar nominated actor Terrence Howard, who lives locally, to play a cameo role. I think this is what encouraged him to give up acting and directing and focus on producing films. Dan takes a delight in solving problems and setting up special effects.” Jonathan concluded, “It’s what he calls ‘Making it Happen.’” There are performers and artists on both sides of Dan’s family. His English cousins have appeared in Downton Abbey and The Crown, and another cousin Rebecca Howell is a choreographer who worked on the new London production of Funny Girl, starring Sheridan Smith, which coincidentally was recently shown as a live broadcast from England the Bryn Mawr Film Institute!

Bench Dedicated in Memory of Mark Dombroski at Waldron Mercy Academy amily, friends, and former teachers gathered together to dedicate a bench in memory of Mark Dombroski, a member of the class of 2013 at Waldron Mercy Academy, in Merion Station. He tragically passed away last year while in Bermuda for a rugby tournament with his team from St. Joseph’s University.


Mark Dombroski’s Waldron Mercy Academy classmates gather around a bench installed on the playground in honor of his memory. “We’re incredibly touched that Mark’s classmates put together such a beautiful gesture in his memory,” said his mother Lisa Dombroski. Mark’s classmates raised money to fund the purchasing and installation of the Buddy Bench, which is intended to be a place for children to go to if they need someone to talk to or play with on the playground.

“We think it will impact children for years to come. It will carry Mark’s legacy of kindness forward if it helps a lonely child on the playground make a new friend,” explained Lisa. Waldron Mercy Academy is a Catholic, co-educational, private elementary school sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy. Waldron has been recognized twice as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and received a Program of Distinction accreditation for Service Learning from the Middle States Association.

Portraits of Irish Writers on Display at Neumann University eumann University is hosting an exhibit of photographs by Robin Hiteshew. Entitled Beyond the Words: Portraits of Irish Writers, the free exhibition runs June 5 to June 23 in the McNichol Art Gallery. Beyond the Words: Portraits of Irish Writers represents one of two long term projects he has worked on for over thirty-nine years. He first began taking photos of authors in 1969 and is still actively working to document the ongoing literary world. He has nearly one hundred authors represented in his collection of portraits including Moya Cannon, Michael Longlay, Seamus Heaney and Ann Enright. The Donegal Association of Philadelphia sponsors the exhibit, which is funded in large part by an Irish Heritage grant through the Irish government’s Emigrant Assistance Programme. The aim of the grant is to connect with Irish citizens living in the United States. This is the second grant Hiteshew has received from the Irish government. The first supported his project documenting Irish traditional musicians over the last forty years. That project, titled The Face of Irish Music, opened in February 2015 at the Irish Consulate in New York City. Over the past twenty years, his photographs have appeared in juried group shows, and he had several solo shows in the Philadelphia area. Hiteshew’s work has been published in numerous magazines, newspapers, and journals. His portraits have appeared on many book covers and CD covers. Robin Hiteshew was born in Norfolk, Virginia and grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs. He was educated at Temple University and Case Western Reserve University. He first began to learn photography at sixteen when he learned to develop prints and make enlargements in the dark room. While at Case Western Reserve University Hiteshaw took a photography course and later was mentored by photographer Charles Metzger. Admission is free. The McNichol Art Gallery is in the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center. The exhibit runs Wednesday, June 5 to Sunday, June 23. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Evening and weekend hours are by appointment only. For information, contact the Office of Cultural Programming at 610-558-5626 or by email dimarinn@

Through that mission of supporting women, we also advocate for a workplace that values people for what they can do – respecting differences in color, nationality, sexual orientation and learning differences.” SPW Trademark Events typically range from 150-250 attendees, and includes valuable networking opportunities prior to and at the conclusion of the program.

The stunning eatery transforms the space and invites visitors to relax and recharge while enjoying lunch or a snack, with expanded seating that extends from the café to a dedicated “itinerary planning” area. Some exciting features and experiences offered by the new Hershey’s Kitchens café include: • Hershey’s Signature S’mores: Permanent s’mores-making station that creates Hershey’s one-of-a-kind recipe using 4x4 in. graham crackers, custom marshmallow, and an entire milk chocolate bar. Guests can also customize their s’more with other Hershey’s and Reese’s favorites. • Warm Baked Goods: Filled brownies, cookies & soft pretzels with melted chocolate dipping sauce. • Indulgent Beverages: Signature Milkshakes, hot chocolate & Jolly Rancher Slushies. • La Colombe Coffee: Brewed, iced, and draft lattes by the Philadelphiabased coffee roaster. • Healthy Lunch Items: Freshly prepared salads & sandwiches with ingredients from local companies. • Custom Souvenirs: Apparel & home accessories featuring Hershey’s brand and Philly icons. Event Network, Inc., which oversees retail management and operations of the IVCC’s Independence Gift Shop, has been integral in the café’s development and will continue to manage its operations after opening. Event Network’s conservation initiatives are evident in its choices of local companies for sourcing non-Hershey ingredients (Dietz & Watson, La Colombe, Turkey Hill); and use of sustainable or compostable materials for cutlery, containers, paper straws, napkins, and bags. “This is an incredibly exciting partnership between The Hershey Company, Event Network, and the Independence Visitor Center Corporation. To bring to life a café anchored by such an iconic Pennsylvania company – Hershey’s – in this historic place is a very unique collaboration. For the millions of visitors who will get the opportunity to enjoy a warm, fresh s’more – among other savory and tasty treats – while planning their time in Philadelphia, their stop by Hershey’s Kitchens café will help to further commemorate their special experience. We are thrilled to be a part of delivering that experience,” said Jerry Gilbert, Principal and Chief Marketing Officer, Event Network. For its grand opening, the first Hershey’s Kitchens café will host an official “plume” cutting (an oversized version of the beloved ribbon on a Hershey’s Kiss) on Wednesday, May 29, 10:30 a.m., right in time for visitors to enjoy at the start of the busy tourist season. “We are thrilled to open our first Hershey’s Kitchens location and share the goodness of Hershey’s with visitors to Philadelphia,” said Suzanne Jones, Vice President, The Hershey Experience. “Hershey has a rich history of creating experiences for consumers to make memories at our Hershey’s Chocolate World locations, and we’ve packaged up the fun for the new Hershey’s Kitchens café with IVCC at the Visitor Center.” Hershey’s Kitchens café is located at 599 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106. It will be open daily, 8:30 a.m. - 7 p.m. The Independence Visitor Center Corporation (IVCC) is a Pennsylvania nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization, which operates in cooperation with the National Park Service, Visit Philadelphia, Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau, the City of Philadelphia, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
