Come and enjoy an afternoon of fun entertainment! The show will showcase Buster Keaton’s classic The General with accompaniment by Glenn Hough. One of the most revered comedies of the silent era, The General finds hapless Southern railroad engineer Johnny Gray (Buster Keaton) facing off against Union soldiers during the American Civil War. When Johnny’s fiancée, Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack), is accidentally taken away while on a train stolen by Northern forces, Gray pursues the soldiers, using various modes of transportation in comic action scenes that highlight Keaton’s boundless wit and dexterity.


Glenn Hough is a member of the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley and an accomplished entertainer. Glenn has delighted our audiences on numerous occasions and is very well known for his concertizing in the tri-state area.
