Christmas in July at Jerusalem Western Salisbury Church July 20

Have you ever taken your children to a live theater performance? DeSales University has one of the best children’s theaters in the Lehigh Valley. I used to take my boys there every summer and they loved it. Children have the option to sit in a regular seat or on the carpet surrounding the stage. After every performance, the actors come to the foyer for photos and autographs. This year they are performing “The Adventures of Robin Hood and Maid Marian.” Showtimes are 10 a.m. Tuesday-Saturday at the Schubert Theatre. Visit www.pashakespeare.org to purchase tickets.
