“The Laramie Project” Staged Reading
Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Twenty years ago, an openly gay college student named Matthew Shephard was kidnapped, beaten, and left tied to a fence on the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. A month later, a troupe of actors descended among the town to interview residents and probe the motives behind the murder. What resulted is the story of a town grappling with the truth of unmasked hatred. The Laramie Project became one of the most performed plays in America, and in 2005 it was Theatre Horizon’s very first production.

An all-star Philadelphia cast performs a staged reading of the iconic telling of one of the most infamous hate crimes in American history.

Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festival
Sep 30 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

This year, more than 150 artists and crafters from across the Mid-Atlantic region (and as far away as Hawaii) will line nearly 10 blocks of Germantown Avenue displaying works in oils, watercolors, sculpture, photography, drawings, and fine crafts. Also returning for 2018, the Makers Village will celebrate both the beauty of completed art pieces as well as the act of creating them. Makers Village invites attendees of all ages to experience the joy of “creating” with interactive activities along with demonstrations in stained glass, weaving, glass blowing, beading, jewelry making, yarn bombing, live painting, and more. The festival will also offer live entertainment on two stages, al fresco dining and festival foods, shopping along the avenue, amusement rides, and family-friendly activities.
