Summer at The Mann Center

Located in lovely Fairmount Park, off the Penn's Landing of  Philadelphia.....

 The Mann Center for the Performing Arts has a 13,000 seats outdoor theater, celebrating 75th year.

Very big capacity performing arts center; their education department got a big heart and it was an exciting experience to perform for their summer program. When I got to the stage, away from the main stage, at the hill top, there was a long white tent to cover 200 seats and extra tables to serve a glass of water for all the kids. Ms. Rhoda Blount, the director of the educational department was busy arranging all the details with hard working assistant and interns. Creative learning has been served here every summer. Applause to the team!!

Behind the scene there are people who connects community and The Mann Center. I met one of them and she took a photo of me and her granddaughters. It was wonderful to meet her! (Sorry, I forgot asking her name spelling and hope to see her again to catch her name!)

Thank you and see you next summer! - Kuniko
