Our 2021 Festival
After kicking off our 12th season with our High School Musical Extravaganza, we spent our summer rediscovering the joy of live music! Stars of today and the stars of tomorrow created music in the mountains with concerts and events that transported us to the most sophisticated Opera Halls and the wildest Rock & Roll Concerts! Our 12th season didn't end just yet though! Join us on December 5th to help us celebrate the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!
Broadway & Beyond
a Musical Passport
Knowing that most of the local high schools had to cancel their 2020 & 2021 spring musicals we worked with the Pocono's stars of tomorrow to fill the void.
27 young artists performed alongside Festival favorite, world renowned pianist, John Boswell at The Sherman Theatre! The filmed performances were edited together to create a Musical Experience that will took everyone in the audience on an artistic adventure!
a tribute to Aretha Franklin
A musical tribute to the Queen of Soul and her impact on both music history and world events! The story of Aretha Franklin is the story of America in the second half of the twentieth century. A cast of award winning vocalists raised the roof at the Sherman Theater and celebrated Aretha, the singer, the icon, the leader, the woman!
An Evening with
Catherine Porter & Jim Vallance
He penned 80's anthems, she kissed Hugh Jackman, he co-wrote the musical, Pretty Woman, she sang with Brian May. He has written favorites such as "Summer of '69," "Heaven," and "What About Love" and she is going to sing the heck out of them. Every song has a story. Singer/Songwriter Catherine Porter and Songwriter Jim Vallance came together for a musical evening we will never forget.
