Back in 1863, a Union soldier returned home to Chester from the fields at Antietam
and Gettysburg to begin a very profitable stone quarry business. That soldier, Alfred O. Deshong, would eventually amass such a fortune that he would bequeath the city of Chester his estate, which, when adjusted for inflation, had a value of just over $24 million. Part of that estate

It might seem improbable that a high-quality community theater would spring up as a result of a women’s club fundraising event more than a hundred years ago, but that’s exactly what happened. From that humble beginning, the Players Club of Swarthmore (PCS) now produces seven mainstage shows a year,

Let us give you the inside scoop on the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center: get your tickets early. With a year-long calendar

(Did we mention the free parking and concession stand prices that won’t make you lose your appetite?) From orchestras to jugglers, ballerinas to show tunes, these shows are worth the price of admission ... and then some.
