The Barn & Blanket theatre camp offered by Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company at Jenkintown Library closed with a performance of an original play created by the campers. Over 2 weeks, Siobhan Beauchamp, Violet Duffey, Tiernan Fitzpatrick, Niamh Montroy and Lilly Santee brainstormed the plot, made posters, and built set and costume pieces, assisted by Declan Beauchamp and Maggie Farr. Bridget Reilly Beauchamp, Artistic Director of PBTC, explains that the object of the camp is, “to show the kids that you don’t need fancy production values to make theatre—all you need is a space and a story.” Thank you to eveyone who participated.

Pulley & Buttonhole Theatre Company is Jenkintown’s only year-round performing arts organization. Next up is a “pay what you will” performance of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night at Abington Art Center on August 6-9. Their 2018-2019 season, "Outside US: Seeing the World through Global Eyes" opens with A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde in October. Season passes are available now.
