This weekend is all about the arts. See Penncrest's musical Notables, join in the teen forum at Media Theatre to discuss teen issues, or watch a renowned dancer teach ballet. If that doesn't interest you, hop on your hog and head over to Hannum's Harley All-Female Party or take a bus trip to New York City.
