Reading Civic Theatre


    ANNOUNCEMENT - Reading Civic Theatre announces performance dates for the Mystery/Comedy
    "Murder Inn". "Murder Inn" is set in New England, at the Barnsley Inn, a dilapidated eighteenth century
    inn, which is supposedly haunted by Marco, a knife-throwing poltergeist. A group of
    tourists, on a tour-Ghosts and Ghouls of New England-is forced, by a storm, to make an
    unscheduled stop at the Barnsley. What looks to be an unpleasant and uncomfortable
    detour soon turns into a night of mayhem and madness as knives begin to pop up… in
    the most unexpected places. As the storm builds and the body count rises, the survivors
    try to figure out who done it. And even more important- who’s likely to have it done to
    them next? For show dates please reference the BUY TICKETS page or click on the link "EVENTBRITE" on
    the right hand side of this page.


    The Greater Reading Alliance of Community Theatres has been approached to be part of the 2015 Senior Arts Festival to be held May 31 through June 6. We are thinking of doing a Senior (age 55+) Cabaret for the opening day, Sunday May 31 in the afternoon at the Miller Center. All the pieces have not been put together yet, but we are looking for "Senior" singers, dancers and actors willing to share their talents for this production. More information will be coming, so seniors start thinking. The Alliance will have a table set up for the week displaying what our organizations have been doing!!! Volunteers will be needed to support the information table.
