Ephrata Performing Arts Center | website | Ephrata, false 17522 event website

The Tragedy of King Lear is one of William Shakespeare's most famous plays. Join EPAC's talented actors in a night filled with betrayal, subterfuge, and redemption. Travel the harrowing heath of England and survive the treacherous storm to find out what will become of King Lear, his three beautiful daughters, and his kingdom.
The Ephrata Performing Arts Center returns to the works of Shakespeare with King Lear. It depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all. Derived from the legend of Leir of Britain, a mythological pre-Roman Celtic king, the play has been widely adapted for the stage and motion pictures, with the title role coveted by many of the world's most accomplished actors. Considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest play, if not the greatest play ever written, Lear has fascinated theater- goers for centurie

Hair at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

April 28-May 13
A product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, the rock musical Hair tells the story of the "tribe," a group of politically active, long- haired hippies of the "Age of Aquarius" living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War. Claude, his good friend Berger, their roommate Sheila, and their friends struggle to balance their young lives, loves, and the sexual revolution with their rebellion against the war and their conservative parents and society. Several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement as America searched for answers in a sea of purple haze. The American musical would never be the same.
