Note: Over the next month, Mock Turtle will be bringing on a full new series of videos from past shows, our most recent work and backstage footage. Come back some time in late March or early April to see the project in bloom!
Mock Turtle is excited to announce our third year of presenting our evening program of regional and emerging Valley arts groups, the IceHouse Tonight. This year’s thirteen part, twenty-five show series bursts with talent and variety, featuring music, poetry dance and two theatrical productions!
Museum of Music
As we look forward to a great year of performances, none are more promising than our new take on our classical music production, Museum of Music. The “Madge and Sylvie” version of the show tells the story two endearing janitrex at the Museum of Music who strive to deliver a tour of the museum to a poor, lost audience. Look for the premiere sometime in early summer.
The Saturday’s Child Family Series enters its nineteenth year this January with a schedule full of fun shows and great performing arts workshops for kids. We are happy to welcome a brand new feature in this year’s programming- an introduction to tap dancing with Tap Ties, the tap dancing specialists of the Lehigh Valley.
Journey from the East
Meanwhile, look for the great new Touchstone Production, Journey from the East. Mock Turtle will be collaborating with some of the best artists in the Valley to create a truly amazing piece of outdoor theater.Category: Blog,Home,News | (0) Comments
