Performances are Friday and Saturday, February 22 and 23, at 8:00p.m. and Sunday, February 24 at 2:00 p.m.
Maybe you’ve already been there, but come again to a South Sea island during World War II, where a self-declared “little hick,” Ensign Nellie Forbush, falls in love with a dashing French planter, Emile de Becque. Try to hold the theatre down when the full pit orchestra plays “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Wonderful Guy” and “Bali Ha'i” in this our valentine to Johnstown.
The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Theatre Department presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical South Pacific.
Tickets are $15 regular and $12 discount.
Remember those long, cold winters at UPJ? Well, we’re putting winter on
hold for one night! Join your fellow alumni and transport yourself to the
South Pacific, where warm ocean breezes carry the sounds of island music
and tropical aromas fill the air.

The Beth Sholom Weaving Room Project has been covered in several recent publications:
"Sandie Hinderliter: 2004 HGA/Interweave Press Teach-It-Forward Grant Recipient," by Sandra Bowles in Shuttle, Spindle, & Dyepot, Vol XXXVI No. 3, Issue 143, Summer 2005. [HGA—Handweaver's Guild of America, Inc.].
"Weaving a Jewish Future in Johnstown" in Hayom: Covering Pennsylvania Jewish Life Today, Vol, No. 2, p. 11. [King Publishing, LLC, State College, PA] (reprinted from The Jewish Chronicle of Pittsburgh).
Learn more about Sandra Hinderliter's artistic community building project at Beth Sholom. An important milestone of this project was the rededication of their rewoven, resized Torah Ark curtains on Friday August 27, 2004. For more than a year, Sandie (a professional weaver) has taught six Beth Sholom congregants how to weave. They have woven tallitot, kippahs, and tallit bags, true works of art and the heart. This has been a truly fantastic project.
The 2004 Beth Sholom weavers include: Amanda Yanella, Seymour Finkelstein, Leah Glass, Judith Finkelstein, and Rema Goldblatt.
