Hand to God

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

Hand to God is a dark comedy about a troubled teen and his puppet, written by Robert Askins. After the death of his father, Jason joins a Christian Puppet Ministry to help with his anxiety. It helps all right, but not in the way that he or his mother had hoped. Jason may be timid, but his puppet, Tyrone, is certainly not. Tyrone is rude, irreverent, dangerous, and not afraid to say all of the things that Jason knows he shouldn’t say to his mother, the bully, and the girl next door. Something like this shouldn’t happen in a small town like Cypress, Texas! Is the puppet possessed, or is Jason losing his grip on his sanity?
Join the fun at EPAC and watch Jason and Tyrone battle for his left hand!

Spelunk in Cold Cave

Wind / Cold Cave

Bucket, Cave
website | map it | Ridge Drive, Pequea, Pennsylvania,

Wind Cave is called Cold Cave because it's nearly freezing in there at all seasons.

It is one of the largest tectonic (created by moving rocks fracturing, not erosion) caves in the eastern United States. It is found in Pequea, Pennsylvania, about a 30 minute drive from Lancaster, in the Susquehanna valley.

To get there, follow 324 South from Lancaster. You will run into a T where the road ends when it hits the river. Take a left, onto Ridge Drive, before long on your right there will be a gated-off road entrance and several gravel parking spaces between the road and a guard-rail. Park here and follow the gated road about a hundred yards until you see a small path leading off to the left. Take this path, and keep going. It seems to wind on endlessly, but just keep going. You will come to a piling of rocks, and in this piling is a large entrance, with a sign posted by the York Grotto about taking care of the cave.
