'Newhart' actors featured in 'Deer Camp' musical

| Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, 12:02 a.m.

Westmoreland Cultural Trust presents the national tour of “Deer Camp: The Musical” at 8 p.m. Nov. 16 at The Palace Theatre, 21 W. Otterman St., Greensburg. The musical comedy stars Tony Papenfuss and John Voldstad, best known as brothers “Darryl and Darryl” on the 1980s “Newhart” television show set in a Vermont inn. Rounding out the cast are John Kunick and Anthony Zadra.

After decades of hunting trips, the four men have yet to bring home a single deer and the wives are getting suspicious. This season they need to show their wives that they are the mighty hunters they claim to be. This is not so easy when the thought of drinking beer and hanging out in the deer shack is more appealing than freezing in a deer stand. But the men hatch a plan to save their hunting paradise without firing a shot.

The show's songs include “She's Playing Bingo,” “If I Were A Male Dancer,” “Coupon Clippin' Ladies” and “Mighty Hunters.”

Tickets are priced at $20, $25 and $30 and are on sale through The Palace Theatre Box Office at 724-836-8000 or online at

Attendees are invited to wear camo or hunter orange to the show but should leave any weapons at home. The best-dressed hunter will get to meet Papenfuss and Voldstad.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
