“He danced

on the Grand”
Entertainer Peter Allen walked,
danced and sat on Horsham
Town Hall’s $8,500 grand
piano Wednesday night.
His lithe, athletic frame slipped
from the keyboard seat and
onto the grand’s gleaming
grand’s surface.
About 600 people cheered
as Allen moved suggestively

Mayors Message
In 2019 the Horsham Town Hall will
celebrate it’s 80th year.

The visionary team at the Horsham Town


Hall proudly present their fourth season
of visual arts, performances and special
events for our community and regional
audiences. Collectively they have sought
work of scale and generosity, work that
contests, interprets, and connects us to
ideas and challenges of our time; as well
as intimate, personal stories that represent
equality that are truly magnificent and
resonant. I encourage you to meet, play,
dance and look again soon at the
Horsham Town Hall in 2019.

THREE BIRDS THEATRE

Enter Ophelia
In a world of mad men and murdering uncles, Ophelia
wanders an empty castle, clutching rotting flowers - told
what to do, where to stand, what to think. No one really
listens to her, no one really sees her.
Enter Ophelia is a darkly funny gothic riff centering
Shakespeare’s iconic drowned damsel into the spotlight of
Denmark, where Ophelia must question and navigate the
darkest corners and secrets of her world in order to take
charge of her own fate.
Enter Ophelia promises to be a dark and thrilling exploration
of femininity, isolation and silliness. Be lured into the
heightened and absurd world of Shakespeare’s Denmark.
