Coming to you this March, PALCS’ Center for Performing and Fine Arts Program is putting on The City of Angels musical. The City of Angels is a musical comedy with music by Cy Coleman, book by Larry Gelbart, lyrics by David Zippel. This high-school musical production will be directed by CPFA theatre teacher, Mr. Seth Reich, and produced by special arrangement with Tams-Witmark: A Concord Music Company. Set in Hollywood during the 1940s, a disillusioned writer adapts his latest novel into a screenplay. Struggling with the realities of Hollywood and the complications of life, his screenplay strangely starts to mirror the world around him. “In this Tony-Award winning musical spoof of film noir crime movies and Hollywood’s treatment of writers, we watch our novelist and his main character come to terms with their own reality,” Mr. Reich tells us. Performances will take place each day, from March 13th to March 17th at the CPFA Atrium Theatre. You can find full schedule here! To purchase tickets, please visit http://www.cpfaboxoffice.com/!
Meet Dominic Corcoran, an 8th grader at PALCS, and an avid performer. Dominic and his older sister, Sofia, were born in Philadelphia and now reside in Delaware County. Growing up, Dominic was a very precocious child, reading and entertaining at a very young age. Dominic fell in love with the theater after seeing The Lion King on Broadway when he was 4 years old. “He has always enjoyed performing, acting and singing, as well as drawing and writing,” his mother, Trisha, explains. Dominic’s inspiration to draw and write came from simple stories such as the Captain Underpants series, with its simple but creative illustrations, and memorable characters and story lines.
