Take an enlightening journey through 5,000 years!
SHEN YUN’S unique artistic vision expands theatrical experience into a multi-dimensional, inspiring journey through one of humanity’s greatest treasures—the ﬁve millennia of traditional Chinese culture.
This epic production immerses you in stories reaching back to the most distant past. You’ll explore realms even beyond our visible world. Featuring one of the world’s oldest art forms— classical Chinese dance—along with patented scenographical eﬀects and all-original orchestral works, Shen Yun opens a portal to a civilization of enchanting beauty and enlightening wisdom.
Traditional Chinese culture—with its profoundly optimistic worldview and deep spiritual roots— was displaced by communism in China. Today, only the New York-based Shen Yun is keeping this precious heritage alive on stage. And it’s an experience that will take your breath away.

Their relationship is put on the line after responding to a domestic disturbance that takes a turn for the worse. Each man’s harrowing version of the truth becomes a fight for their own survival. Where the moral grey area exists, A Steady Rain begins.

February 21-March 31, 2018
Address: 39 Conestoga Rd, Malvern, PA 19355
Phone: (610) 644-3500
Amsterdam, 1942. In a cramped, secret annex, eight Jews attempt to evade Nazi deportation. One of them, a teenage girl with a vibrant spirit and a gift for writing, chronicles their harrowing experiences in her diary. Wendy Kesselman's adaptation captures the immediacy of Anne Frank's voice and the courage and terror of life in hiding from Hitler's genocide of the Jews. Our production, featuring a multi-racial cast, honors this "undeniably moving" (The New York Times) story as it speaks to today's increasingly nationalistic world.
Approximate run time is 2 hours and 10 minutes including a 15-minute intermission. Best enjoyed by ages 12+
