The Republican Herald - - BUSINESS -

POTTSVILLE — The first Fes­ti­val of the Arts will be held at Fair­lane Vil­lage mall, Route 61, on May 5.

In a re­lease, San­dra Coyle, ad­min­is­tra­tive di­rec­tor of the Schuylkill County Coun­cil for the Arts, 1440 Ma­han­tongo St., said the fes­ti­val will be an “expo-type” event with “var­i­ous per­for­mances dur­ing the day, a free youth the­ater work­shop and a youth vo­cal com­pe­ti­tion.”

Or­ga­niz­ers hope it will be­come an an­nual event.

The fes­ti­val will be a “great time” for the “many or­ga­ni­za­tions in the area” to “show­case their tal­ents,” Coyle said, adding, “There is also a grow­ing in­ter­est in the per­form­ing arts in the area and we want to help give in­for­ma­tion on the op­por­tu­ni­ties in our area.”

The Schuylkill The­ater As­so­ci­a­tion is the event host and or­ga­niz­ers are “try­ing to get the word out on this first-of-akind per­form­ing arts event,” Coyle said.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Coyle at 570-622-2788.
