ticketsmallTHE CENTRALIA EXPERIENCE

October 15, 2016 | 6:00 PM | Edward W. Powers Auditorium

Playwright/director/producer Roger “Teco” Trent was stirred by the story of real-life fires that have burned beneath the borough of Centralia, Pennsylvania ever since the 1960s. The result is the inspirational musical The Centralia Experience, about a town plagued by an underground coal fire, slowly burning and destroying everything in its path. There are reasons to stay — and reasons to go. In Centralia, every day is the same and no one changes or even dreams anymore. The Lady in the window watches as people make decisions on whether to stay in this town that is falling apart, or take a bold step into the unknown world of change. She ultimately comes face to face with having to make that same decision, but first she must overcome her personal Centralia lurking at home. She ultimately learns that although some residents would rather die than change, there are some who choose to die so that they can change.
