Looking for some fun plans this weekend? Look no further than right here in Erie. Here is a list of some great activities that are taking place this weekend!
All An Act Presents “What the Bellhop Saw”
A nice fellow checks into an expensive suite in New York City’s finest hotel, precipitating a fantastic nightmare involving a Salman Rushdie-type author, a vengeful terrorist, a vile wife from hell, a conniving bellboy, an incompetent F.B.I. agent, a nubile celebrity-mad maid, a dimwitted secretary, and a little pig tailed girl. Gag lines are popping as events transpire at a whirlwind velocity. Topical humor blends with the traditional antics of farce: doors slamming, characters careening and confusion reigning supreme. Including the show stopping silent “Bellhop Ballet.” This show will take place on May 13 and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and May 15 at 3 p.m. Learn more about this show by visiting their website or by calling 814-450-8553.

Erie Philharmonic presents Symphonic Series Beethoven 7
The Erie Philharmonic is honored to commission a brand nee work by American Composer Timothy Adams based on the life of Harriet Tubman. Adams is the former Principal Timpanist of the Pittsburgh Symphony and the current chair of the Percussion Department at the University of Georgia. Adams brings electric and rich musical instincts to a subject so crucial to the understanding of our national identity. The evening will be capped by one of Beethoven’s most beloved symphonies, the Seventh. Dubbed the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ by Richard Wagner, Beethoven’s Seventh contrasts the powerful rhythmic profile of the outer movements with one of the most moving, elegiac slow movements Beethoven ever wrote all motivated by an unrelenting pulse that gives this work its reputation. This show will take place on Saturday May 14 at 8 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit their website or call 814-455-1375.
Station Dinner Theatre presents “Ghosts of a Chance”
A supernatural comedy that features uncanny “psychic” humor, unearthly twists and turns, and otherworldly one liners, as well as a strong ensemble cast. Eager to sell a posh penthouse that has been on the market for 10 years, a real estate agent thinks he’s in luck when he meets a mob boss and his wife who are keen on purchasing the apartment. However, there’s just one little problem: the penthouse is haunted by unhappily married, bickering ghosts who aren’t even sure if they’re dead. To salvage the sale, the real estate agent hires a “psychic” to rid the apartment of its quarrelsome ghosts and help them escape their penthouse purgatory and find a new lease on…death. This show will take place on May 7, 8, 11, 14, 15, 18, 21, and 22. To learn more or to purchase tickets, please visit their website or call 814-864-2022.
