One of my favorites is Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. (The fact that it is set in Punxsutawney just makes it that more engaging!) Theres something simple and comforting about watching the same events play over and over. On a more complex level, its a study of human nature and how people and small, insignificant things can have a great impact on our lives. Most times, the characters dont even notice the change thats occurring be-cause theyre too caught up in the importance of self.</p><p>How often are we guilty of just being, rather than participating in the game of life like the characters in Groundhog Day? Too often! Indulging in the arts is a perfect way to get our creativity, love and compassion for ourselves, our neighbors and our communities back in sync. It can start simply, as a very basic need to be entertained. Being entertained can lead to a giggle, a laugh, a tear. That feeling can lead to an action of a smile, a word, a helping hand. </p><p>Just like the movie, it wont matter if we have six more weeks of winter or not. Its what we do with those six weeks that matter! Attend a play, dinner theatre, or event. Volunteer your time and thank those that make these events possible. An investment of yourself, your time and your money will strengthen your commu-nity. The change will be subtle at first, and you may not even see it coming, but the rewards will be great!</p><p>So, what will your perfect Groundhog Day look like? </p></li><li><p>8 - W&amp;W Winter 2012</p><p>It may be considered the old stand-by, and for good reason. Dinner and a show is still the quintessential date night of choice. When you con-sider the price of movie tickets, popcorn, Raisinets and a Coke these days, you might as well spring for a great dinner and live theater without ever leaving your table.</p><p>Dinner theatre likely got its start in the 16th century with the Madrigal feasts held during the Twelve Days of Christ-</p><p>mas. If you lived in England during the Middle Ages and your connections to nobility garnered you an invitation, you would be dazzled with stunning pag-eantry, bawdy humor, endless amounts of succulent food, and delightful music. Plays, or masques, as they were known, were often performed for over-fed guests at these Madrigal Feasts. </p><p>The heyday of modern dinner the-atre was probably in the 1970s, but it has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity </p></li><li><p>9 - W&amp;W Winter 2012</p><p>since 2000. Pennsylvania has several full-time dinner theatres, as well as locations where you can enjoy the occasional mur-der mystery or Madrigal Feast. </p><p>Its this time of year that we all feel a little overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I cant think of a better way to relax and enjoy a twinge of nostalgia and a belly laugh with the ones you love. </p><p>Q</p><p>The Music Box Dinner Playhouse196 Hughes Street, Swoyersville, PA 18704www.musicbox.org</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 26 Dec. 18, Irving Berlins White Christmas</p><p>January 2012: Avenue </p><p>Q</p><p>Pines Dinner Theatre 448 N. 17th Street, Allentown, PA 18104www.pinesdinnertheatre.com</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 4 Dec. 23, Christmas at the PinesJanuary 2012: Rockin in the Country</p><p>Q</p><p>Fishers Tudor HouseMurder Mystery Dinner Theater1858 Street Road, Bensalem, PA 19020</p><p>www.fisherstudor.com/theater.html</p><p>Now showing: Deadly Dancing</p><p>Q</p><p>Allenberry Resort and Playhouse1559 Boiling Springs Road, Boiling Springs, PA 17007</p><p>www.allenberry.com</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 2 Dec. 23, </p><p>Mistletoe Magic</p><p>April 2012: Forever Plaid</p></li><li><p>10 - W&amp;W Winter 2012</p><p>Q</p><p>Rainbow Dinner Theatre (all comedy)3065 Lincoln Highway East, Para-dise, PA 17562www.rainbowdinnertheatre.com</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 8 Dec. 30, Home for the HolidaysJan. 27 Mar 14, Lets Murder Marsha</p><p>Q</p><p>Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre510 Centerville Road, Lancaster, PA 17601www.dutchapple.com</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 17 - Dec. 23, Mira-cle on 34th StreetDec. 30 Feb. 4, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline</p><p>Q</p><p>Gettysburg Civil War Era Dinner The-atreThe Fair eld Inn 1757, 15 West Main Street, Fair eld, PA 17320www.civilwartheater.com</p><p>Year-round: Civil War Stories (one-man show featuring an old-time storyteller with Civil War Era ghost stories and magic)</p><p>Q</p><p>The Riverside Inn &amp; Dinner TheatreOne Fountain Ave., Cambridge Springs, PA 16403www.theriversideinn.com</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 26 Dec. 18, All I Want for Christmas</p><p>Q</p><p>The Station Dinner Theatre,4940 Peach Street, Erie, PA 16509www.canterburyfeast.com</p><p>Christmas Show: Nov. 19 Dec. 21, Christmas Memories</p></li><li><p>11 - W&amp;W Winter 2012</p><p>Jan 20-22Heart of Lewisburg</p><p>Ice FestivalLewisburg</p><p>www.lewisburgpa.com/events</p><p>Feb 3-5Warren County WinterfestChapman State Park, Clarendonhttp://warrencountywinterfest.com</p><p>whereandwhen.comCheck out all the events on </p><p> MiddleburgState College </p><p> WarrenWellsboro </p><p>Lewisburg </p><p>Tunkhannock </p><p>Clear eld </p><p>Williamsport </p><p>Johnsonburg </p><p> Bradford</p><p> Boalsburg</p><p>Pitts eld </p><p>Nicholson </p><p>Use your smart-phone to scan this QR Code</p><p>and gain access to more than 800</p><p>PA events!</p></li><li><p>Dec 1-24.
