State Street Players present their 42nd annual show


The State Street Players present their 42nd Annual Assault on the Performing Arts, “Today Is Yesterday’s Tomorrow,” March 6, 7, 13, 14, 20 and 21.

This year’s production will be held in the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Auditorium, 225 E. Ashland St., Doylestown.

Eric Nitschke, director for the 2020 show, said the State Street Players’ annual shows are perfect for audiences who want to unplug their digital entertainment and spend an evening out enjoying live entertainment at a reasonable price.

“In the age of athletes and movie stars whose values and performances leave many people scratching their heads, the State Street Players offer a simpler form of entertainment provided by people who work for a living and volunteer their time and energy to the performing arts,” Nitschke said.

For each for the past 41 years, more than 100 Doylestown-area residents write, produce and perform the annual show, as well as build their own sets and construct the stage itself in the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School auditorium.

Nitschke explained this down-home theme takes audience members on a frolicking romp through the rich history of TV, film, Broadway, and Americana.

Tickets are $20 per person; tables of up to 10 are available; doors open at 6:45 p.m.; show time is 8 p.m.
