Gadfly with the students in the morning and then a double-header Sunday afternoon

(31st in a series of posts on Touchstone Theatre)

Touchstone 1

Sleepy-eyed Gadfly plans this morning with the students:


A roaming group of misfit heroes follows a peculiar star; they find themselves in Bethlehem by accident but stay to fight the monsters that they find there– and face their fears– in this original production, devised and written by teens from Bethlehem high schools.

Directed by Emma Ackerman, coordinator of Touchstone Theatre’s Teen Ensemble.


Sunday, October 6 – 11:00a-12:30p

VENUE:  Payrow Plaza | 10 E. Church Street, Bethlehem, PA

In case of rain, venue will be Nitschmann Middle School. Decision will made by 8am– Check the Festival UnBound Facebook, or our voicemail to confirm.

And then, since Gadfly saw Prometheus/Redux yesterday with the panel, he plans to see The Secret — the H.D. play with the Mock Turtle Marionettes — likewise with panel — today and afterwards walk up to Zoellner to see “A Joyful Noise.”

He likes panels and will post on the Prometheus one in a day or two.
