“Queen of the Sun” is a profound, alternative look at the global bee crisis from award-winning filmmaker Taggart Siegel.

Stick around after the film for a lively and education panel discussion.
Miracle on South Division Street
DCP Theater, 795 Ridge Road, Telford
The story of the Nowak family, living amidst the urban rubble of Buffalo, NY’s East Side. Maybe the neighborhood is depressed, but not Clara, the family matriarch. She happily runs her soup kitchen and tends to the family heirloom – a twenty-foot shrine to the Blessed Mother which adjoins the house. This neighborhood beacon of faith commemorates the day in 1942 when the Blessed Virgin Mary materialized in her father’s barber shop!
One Act Festival
Town and Country Players, 4158 York Road, Buckingham
Featuring new directorial talent to the T&C stage. Enjoy several one-act plays in one entertaining show.
Robert Dubac’s The Book of Moron
Bristol Riverside Theater, 120 Radcliffe St, Bristol
“Hilarious,” “Intelligent,” “Provocative,” “Scorching” all describe Robert Dubac’s new solo show The Book of Moron! If you liked last season’s The Male Intellect, you’ll love this show. Combining theater with stand-up, Dubac crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. And he’s not alone. With mesmerizing ease, he portrays multiple characters who all take turns beating the hornet’s nest of hype and spin with the big stick of knowledge. It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it?
Philly Walk A Mile in Her Shoes
Core Creek Park, Langhorne
10:00am – 1:00pm
A Woman’s Place is thrilled to be the beneficiary recipient organization of the 2015 Philly Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event! This is the international men’s march which encourages men to walk a mile in women’s high-heeled shoes to protest rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. Leave your sneakers behind and throw on your comfiest pair of socks for this unique event! We won’t mind if you stash some Band-AIDS in your pockets… walking in heels is no easy feat.
Lemonade Stand to support Alex’s Lemonade Days
Upper Makefield Fire Company 1221 Taylorsville Road Washington Crossing
10:00am – 4:00pm
In an effort to join the battle against childhood cancer, the Upper Makefield Fire Company and Glazer family will host an Alex’s Lemonade Stand during the Alex’s Lemonade Days on June 13, 2015 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Upper Makefield Fire House, 1221 Taylorsville Road, Washington Crossing, Pa. 18977. The Glazer kids decided to hold a lemonade stand because they wanted to help find the cure for cancer. Ethan Glazer wanted to get the firehouse involved because, “cancer is like a fire that spreads throughout the body. We thought that since you (the firemen) put out fires, we could help put out the cancer fire.” Ethan and Elora will be passing out lemonade, cupcakes and gluten free cupcakes. All they ask for in return is for a donation for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Peace Valley Nature Center 170 North Chapman Road Doylestown
10:00am – 12:00pm
Bring your gloves and sunscreen to do various jobs at the nature center and help improve our outdoor classroom. Opportunities for all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
The Miracle Worker
Newtown Theater, 120 N. State St, Newtown
Immortalized onstage and screen by Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke, this classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. Winner of the 1960 TONY Award for Best Play, The Miracle Worker dramatizes the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: “water”.
