6:30-9 p.m.
Theatre Café with Allentown Public Theatre

Make history by attending the first-ever Theatre Café reading in the Museum Café, in partnership with Allentown Public Theatre. Tonight's Café showcases the playwrighting and performance talents of local high schoolers at the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Performing Arts, and in particular recent graduate Willow Reichard-Flynn's recent work Regret. Surreal in style, Regret focusses on the story of a lesbian couple with a disturbing past they can’t escape. Free, and the Museum Cafe will be open for snacks and refreshments.

To audition for upcoming Theater Café performances, actors and playwrights can contact Allentown Public Theatre here.
