Peace, Love and Cupcakes

Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre | website | Lancaster, false 17601 event website

July 12 – August 9, 2019

For Kylie Carson, middle school is a very scary and unfriendly place. So she cooks up a sweet solution: form a cupcake club that’s open to anyone seeking friendship. But the popular clique turns bitter with jealousy and vows to destroy the club’s efforts. Kylie is now faced with a tough choice: stoop to the mean girls’ level or take the higher road. The delicious pop-infused score by Rick Hip-Flores brings the bestselling children’s book by Sheryl and Carrie Berk to life, and drives home a message of empathy, love, and the power of young people to change the world.

Perhaps SummitPost.org says it best: "Chickies Rock is merely a hill if you look at it by the map. Yes, it looks a little steep, but nothing like what you see when you stand at the base and look up the 220 foot vertical wall. Impressive........yes, definitely, especially for Pennsylvania. Chickies Rock is without a doubt the premier natural rock climbing location in the state. You can go there any day of the year and there will be at any one time at least 5-10 climbers heading up the steep precipice ... It has history, history, and even more history. It is now part of the Chickies Rock County Park which contains more than 422 acres of preservation land. Much of this land along the river was part of the old Pennsylvania Canal. Prior to that it was one of the largest Indian villages discovered in Lancaster County. Even more than that, it ran lines for the PA Railroad and still is active in shipping by rail. Geologically speaking Chickies Rock is something special to many people on the east coast. It is the largest exposed Anticline on the east coast. This geological feature is very easy to pick out as the rock arches up on the north and south sides of the outcropping. The center of the anticline is located right around the northwest corner of the outcropping and it forms a mini-cave." Simply put, Chickies Rock is breathtaking, and is worth a visit on your next trip to Lancaster County.
