Brodhead Cultural Center Announces Summer Schedule

5/22/2008 —

The Penn State Beaver Brodhead Cultural Center’s 32nd summer season of programming will begin June 19 at the  J. P. Giusti Amphitheater, Brodhead Road, Monaca. This summer’s series sponsors are the Beaver County Times and ARA Corporation in Koppel.

Shows are open to the public and are free, except the musical. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and are held in the amphitheater, unless an alternate location is listed.

Performance dates vary each week, and some programs have no rain date or rain location.

The Beaver Valley Area Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association will sell Penn State Creamery ice cream prior to some of the shows and will sell concessions before and during every show. All ice cream and concession sale proceeds benefit Beaver campus student scholarships funded by the Alumni Chapter.

Advance ticket information for the musical is available by calling the Brodhead Cultural Center at 724-773-3610. Tickets are $13 for all ages. There is no discount for children or senior citizens and no reserved seating. If available, tickets will be sold at the door prior to each performance beginning at 6 p.m. Auditorium doors open for audience general seating at 6:45 p.m.       

The Mill Creek Valley Historical Association will staff and host free tours of the Baker-Dungan Museum located on the hill overlooking the Cultural Center’s amphitheater. The museum, which is free and open for one hour prior to all shows except the musical, contains a variety of local historical artifacts, tools, furniture, clothing, and other displays.
