Lost Girls by John Pollono
Feb 16 @ 7:00 pm – Mar 12 @ 5:00 pm

Theatre Exile presents the Philadelphia premiere of Lost Girls by John Pollono, from February 16 – March 12, 2017, at Studio X (1340 S. 13th Street). When Erica, their sixteen-year- old daughter, goes missing during a winter storm, Maggie and Lou—former high school sweethearts, now divorced—are forced to confront the legacy of their past decisions. Filled with poignant passions and dark humor, LOST GIRLS is a hard-hitting drama about the women of a blue-collar family struggling to rise above their limited prospects, in a world indifferent to their struggles, to prevent history from repeating itself. Directed by Joe Canuso. Tickets are on sale now for $10 to $40 by visiting www.theatreexile.org or calling 215-218-4022.

Norristown Remembered: The Art of Frank Batson
Feb 21 all-day

The Historical Society of Montgomery County is pleased to announce a new exhibition in its gallery that will run from February 21, 2017, to April 29, 2017.  “Norristown Remembered” will feature Frank Batson’s paintings of Norristown and the surrounding region.

A Norristown native, Batson has been interested in art nearly all of his life.  Batson graduated from Norristown High School in 1954, and many of his paintings are inspired by his memories of Norristown and the surrounding area from the 1940s, ‘50s, and ‘60s.  Some of the buildings and places still remain; other scenes are long gone, but Batson’s paintings bring these places back to life.   Batson, now a resident of Worcester, paints from both photographs and personal memory to bring back these views of Montgomery County with remarkable accuracy.

The exhibit is open during Society normal hours of operation and is free and open to the public. The Historical Society is open Monday and Thursday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 1 p.m.-8 p.m. For Saturday hours call 610-272-0297.
