Although live theater possesses a spirit of unpredictability and spontaneity, releasing a Siberian tiger on stage to test the actors' dedication to their characters is generally frowned upon.

Girls Night: The Musical places five friends center stage as they fondly remember their past and celebrate the present during one comedic night of karaoke. After sold-out runs in Las Vegas and Fort Lauderdale and plugs on NBC and the Lifetime network, the acclaimed musical heads to the Sovereign Performing Arts Center for a limited engagement. As actresses harmonize to suffragette anthems such as “Lady Marmalade,” “It’s Raining Men," and "I Will Survive" amid vibrant set pieces, audiences laugh and cry as the theater transforms into a besties convention. Recently remodeled, the former 1920s movie palace features a new air-conditioning system, more comfortable seating, and a significantly reduced "robber barons only" section.
Entertainment Events has produced amateur and professional performances in more than 250 cities both domestic and abroad and also supports communities, schools, art groups, and civic organizations with fundraising efforts.
Sovereign Performing Arts Center
The Sovereign Performing Arts Center has been a part of Reading since 1870, and has played many roles in that time. Built as a market, with a Masonic Temple on the upper floors and a bird university on the roof, it soon became the Academy of Music. Then, in 1917, the Rajah Shriners purchased the facility and turned it into a venue for vaudeville, motion pictures, and live appearances, laying the foundation for its current incarnation. Decades later, the Berks County Convention Center Authority purchased the Rajah Theater and treated it to a $7 million renovation, including a new air-conditioning system and more comfortable seating.
