Buddy and Jovie
The Walnut Street Theatre, located at 825 Walnut Street, is presenting Elf through January 5.  This enchanting tale of merry holidays, Christmas spirit, and child-like innocence will warm your heart and have you bursting out in smiles. Be prepared to be captivated by the performance of Christopher Sutton who plays Buddy, the Elf.  His performance was awe-inspiring as he won a Barrymore for his portrayal of Buddy in The Buddy Holly Story.  This Buddy not only sings, but dances up a storm.  Singing and tapping by his side is an all-star ensemble well as the charismatic Kate Fahrner who portrays his girlfriend, Jovie. The sets, aptly gift wrapped for the season, take us from the North Pole to Manhattan and back.  Walnut Street’s mainstage is the place to be for all believers in Santa Claus.  If you are not a believer-, all the more reason for you to attend and suspend your belief for a delightful experience... Where else can you experience a snowfall without the accompanying cold? For more information or tickets, call 215-574-3550 or visit online at

Pride and Prejudice

Bristol Riverside Theatre, located at 120 Radcliffe Street in Bristol, Pa, is presenting Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice through November 24. Jon Jory’s adaption of Jane Austin’s 200 year old novel remains true to its original content. The creative team of set designer Megan Jones, costume designer Linda B. Stockton, lighting Designer Kate Ashton, sound designer Bradlee Milton, and choreographer Stephen Casey have all worked together to make the stage the embodiment of 19th Century salons and gardens. The balls which are held (not easy to accomplish without a huge stage and cast of thousands) give everyone the flavor of British society in 1813 .The ensemble cast performs well without exception. The quadrilles, clipped speech and stiff mannerisms provide a believable time warp to whisk the audience back to an earlier era.  For tickets or more information on how to see this delightful production, call 215-985-0100 or visit online at
