    “You get to meet, greet, and know the actors and actresses up close and personal.”

    John Callahan, Season Pass Holder since 2012

    "The end of the afternoon you leave with the great feeling you have enjoyed another theatrical production with your whole family. In a nutshell, you can't beat Candlelight and that's why Nunsense (2015) was our 48th trek down from Northeast Philly, 42 miles each afternoon with our extended family."

    "I have been to several shows here from a drag show to a classic play. The food has always been wonderful and the buffet gives everyone something to enjoy. As for views, given this is a small theater there is not a bad seat. So for a cost effective local show you can not beat this venu!"

    “Top rate performance and fun for the whole family”

    We have seen Annie and Bye bye Birdie and we had a wonderful experience both times. Our kids (7&9) loved it as much as we did. The performances are impressive and having your waiter be in the show is a fun feature. It is worth every penny.

    COLLEEN CLANCY is honored to be performing in this beautiful, classic piece of theatre. Most recently, Colleen was seen in the First National Tour of Amazing Grace. Some of her favorite roles include Cinderella (Into the Woods), Penelope Square (Polkadots…), Narrator (Joseph and…), and Charity (Sweet Charity). Colleen is eager to take on this role that her mom also played in 1979. She is a little less enthused about the notes her mom may give after the show. Thank you to Renee and Doug for this wonderful opportunity and this whole glorious cast for welcoming her to Candlelight. All love to God and her family.

    PETER CAMPBELL On his first day of class as a 3rd grader in a new school, future operatic bass, Peter Campbell, put his hand over his heart and said the Pledge of Allegiance aloud with all the other students. Everyone turned and stared at this boy with the freakishly deep voice. He has been on stage ever since. At first he ventured into acting, studying Character with Stella Adler in the 1980s. Ultimately, he found a home in opera, performing major roles, including Mephistopheles (Faust), both Don Giovanni and Leporello (Don Giovanni), Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro), and Don Basilio (Il barbieri di Siviglia). These days, Mr. Campbell performs solely for the sheer joy of performing.
