This Week at Malvern Arts…

Perspectives: Discussions around Race and Its Impact 

Tomorrow! Tuesday, May 31st, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm 

An informal, small gathering for structured discussion on racial, ethnic, and cultural differences, with an eye for how they impact the Malvern community.

From the mid 1990’s, Program Leaders Ajené Livingston and Danny Fruchter, along with Bob Jones and a core group of artists provided a safe place where theatre and other art forms nurtured interracial and cultural dialogue and exchange in Coatesville.

Ajené Livingston is also highly active in the Coatesville community as a board member of the Coatesville Youth Initiative, a fundraiser for a new community center in Coatesville, board president of Revival Productions and Conservatory, and Chair of Coatesville’s Parks and Recreation Commission.  

Danny Fruchter is a Malvern resident, publisher of The Malvernian, founder and Producing Director of People’s Light & Theatre Co. for its first 23 years, a co-founder of the Coatesville Cultural Society, and founding organizer of Malvern Arts.

Forgotten Films : The Man Who Would Be King

Wednesday, June 1st at 7:30 pm

Are there old films you miss or never got to see? Saw it decades ago and can’t remember why you liked it (or forgot the name)?  Program Leaders Kurt Leininger and Helen Rehl have combined their eclectic collections of DVDs – a mix of oldies, famous as well as obscure, ranging from crime & mystery to historical drama & documentary, to clever comedy, and invite you to view some favorites. They will introduce the selected film for the evening and lead post-film conversations.

The film for June is The Man Who Would Be Kingdirected by John Huston, starring Sean Connery, Peter O’Toole and Christopher Plummer. 

There is no cost to attend, but please let us know you are coming by email to Helen Rehl at, or .  Snacks, beverages and plastic cups will be available, and guests can also bring their own.
