The Pennsylvania State Senate, in a proclamation from Senator Dominic Pileggi and Senator Edwin B. Erickson, recognized The Media Theatre for the momentous occasion of its twentieth anniversary in producing professional Broadway musicals.
The proclamation reads, in part, "The Senate of Pennsylvania takes great pride in recognizing those organizations which, through adherence to the highest standards of service, contribute in a meaningful way toward a better and more productive society."
It goes on to mention a brief history of The Media Theatre, followed by "Lauded as the only professional theatre in Delaware County, The Media Theatre for the Performing Arts produces five Broadway Series musicals and a children's series each year, and it is home to The Media Music Theatre Company."
A mention is given to the theatre's School of The Theatre, its outreach programs to the community, and its economic impact on the region.
Further, a wish is given for future success from The Pennsylvania State Senate.
Artistic Director Jesse Cline and Executive Director Patrick Ward said in a joint statement that "We are extremely honored to receive this proclamation and recognition."
The current production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Sunset Boulevard" starring Tony nominee Ann Crumb is playing April 16-May 18. For tickets or information call 610-891-0100 or visit mediatheatre.org
