"There was a saying going around the theatre: It's a train, and you can jump on at any point whether you're a lover of musical theatre, or a lover of theatre, or a lover of hip-hop, or a lover of history - there was a way to jump on the train."
-Phillipa Soo (Hamilton, Amélie, The Parisian Woman)

The Community Arts Center of Cambria County will be continuing its Log Art Theatre division of performing arts with its August production of The Prisoner of Second Avenue. Join us for a charming comedy that engulfs the audience into the lives of husband and wife, Mel and Edna Edison, written by critically acclaimed Neil Simon. This production will be featured outdoors on the Center’s property to encourage social distancing and proper ventilation. As a creative spin, the production will be done in the style of a “LIVE RADIO SHOW,” marrying the simplicity and distance of the radio sketches with a live performance. The actors’ blocking will cater to the old-fashioned microphones strategically placed throughout the set. There will be minimal props, set, and costumes, and it will feature live sound effects by Jason Bolinger. The production will feature a cast of six, including Jill Henning, Dr. Christina Fosbrink, Trisha Schutte, Sara Fenimore, Randy Jeffreys, and Dr. Paul D. Newman under the direction of Angela R. Godin.
The performances will take place outdoors on the Community Arts Center's property, located at 1217 Menoher Blvd, Johnstown. Due to COVID-19, all performances will be held outside with social distancing protocols enforced for the safety of the community and the actors involved. Please wear a mask when attending a performance.

Mel Edison is a well-paid executive of a high-end Manhattan firm, which has suddenly hit the skids, and he gets the ax. His wife Edna takes a job to tide them over, then she too is sacked. Compounded by the air-pollution killing his plants, and with the walls of the apartment being paper-thin, allowing him a constant earfull of his neighbors private lives, things can't seem to get any worse...Then he's robbed, and his psychiatrist dies with $23,000 of his money. Mel does the only thing left for him to do-he has a nervous breakdown and it's the best thing that ever happened to him...
