This evening I was given access to take photos for The Lamp Theatre in Irwin, PA. The Lamp Theatre originally opened in 1937 and closed it doors in 2004 after more than seven decades of operation. A project was launched to revive the theater, grants were obtained, and then a huge set-back came in 2009 when the Irwin Hotel caught fire with flames spreading to the theater. Following the re-grouping of supporters, the extension of grant deadlines, and massive construction; the theater had a grand re-opening in 2016 under the ownership of the Borough and the operation of the non-profit Lamp Theatre Corporation.
The current production of the Lamp Theatre Players is the musical "All Shook Up" which is inspired by and features the songs of Elvis Presley. The story is based on William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. The year is 1955 and a young man with the moves and music of Elvis rides into a backwoods town in a backwoods state. You'll hear such classics as “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” and “Don’t Be Cruel.”
A huge thanks goes out to their General manager, Dani Haggerson, for granting me access to this amazing show.
This is the third show I have covered at The Lamp Theatre, and with every visit I am more and more impressed both by the shows they put on and by the friendliness of the staff and volunteers. They have always made made me feel welcome. Tonight's show was no exception and proves that you don't need to go very far in this area to experience a night with a talented cast putting on a great show.
This production features two casts, each performing separate shows, so for more fun you can see it twice. If you are looking for a night out for your family be sure to visit The Lamp web site for more information. https://www.lamptheatre.org

We believe in bridging the gap between KISS fans from the '70's and the new legions of the KISS Army. With a show combining a lot of the elements that are reminiscent of a KISS performance, and enough hits to go double platinum we bring you back to a time when lips everywhere were coming together in unison to welcome the hottest band in the world!
This Past weekend I attended the RWA Renegade Wrestling Alliance show in West Newton Pa
to do some photos of the show. Prior to the show I had the opportunity to sit and have a short chat with one of the shows co-owners and learn a little about the promotion operating out of the West Newton Gym
Derek made it clear from the start that the show is and always will be about and for the fans. and as I spent the evening at what turned about to be an exciting and action packed show I found myself seeing all around me exactly what he means when he says "We are not a Universe, We are not a Nation We are a Family"
Now in its 10th year Derek shared with me the 2 shows he ahs been the proudest of, One Honoring our Veterans and the Second which featured current WWE superstar Matt Hardy.
When asked about stars he would like to have perform at one of his promotions shows Derek thought for a moment and settled on 2 one Past legend Nature Boy Rick Flair and current WWE star Bray Wyatt.
If you are looking for a night out filled with family fun and excitement be sure to check out the next show
