Act 1 Offers a Fresh New Take on a Holiday Classic!

The Christmas season is fast approaching. We always look forward to our holiday-themed December production. The semester is coming to a close and the holiday show sparks thoughts of the holiday break and time with family and friends.

Four years ago, we offered a new spin on the Dickens’ classic with our production of The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge. We were pleasantly surprised by how well that production was received. People were definitely looking for a new approach to the traditional story of transformation and rebirth.

Well this year, we’re so pleased to offer A Christmas Carol told in a new theatrical way.

Featuring a troupe of travelling actors who undertake all of the roles, this version – a circus-like world of movement, music, and hilarity – is sure to delight. Wayne Turney starred as Scrooge himself in a production of this version a few years back and he’s at the helm as director this time around introducing it to a new generation of actors.

Order your tickets now.

I hope you’ll join us to see Scrooge as you’ve never seen him presented before!

This year’s recipient of the DeSales Medal is Mr. Robert Breslin

Each year at the November meeting, the Board of Trustees select a recipient for the DeSales Medal, which is conferred during the January commencement ceremony.

The DeSales Medal is the highest non-academic award given by the University. It honors a person whose life embodies the principles so dear to the hearts of Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal.

We are fortunate to have many members of our University community who live in ways that transcend the limits of our worldliness. Their humility, gentleness, and charity point to a source of love more profound than is common in our ordinary lives. It is important to name and honor them.

This year’s recipient of the DeSales Medal is Mr. Robert Breslin.

Mr. Robert Breslin is a founder and CEO of Breslin Ridyard Fadero Architects of Allentown, PA.  Breslin Ridyard Fadero Architects is a 25-person firm of architects and supporting staff. Over a nearly 44- year history, the firm has established a reputation for producing cost effective and creative public architecture.  DeSales University is blessed to have five major buildings created by the firm:  the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts, the Trexler Library, the Priscilla Payne Hurd Science Center, and the DeSales University Center.  Each building gracefully fits with the natural beauty and expanse of the valley.  The entire Breslin family has been ardent supporters of the academic and cultural life of DeSales University. We are pleased to offer our heartfelt thanks to Mr. Robert Breslin for his gifts of beauty.

Please extend to Mr. Bob Breslin your individual congratulations and best wishes.
