‘Pink Panther’ on the prowl at Colonial Playhouse

News Source: Delaware County Daily Times

ALDAN — Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau and his bizarre police techniques and results continue in the spotlight at Colonial Playhouse as “The Pink Panther Strikes Again” continues its run, Nov. 15-17

The world’s most unusual criminologist, Clouseau — a role originated by Peter Sellers and played at Colonial by Rich Lee — fights for his life and for the future of all mankind in the most bizarre and dangerous caper of his brilliantly successful and utterly clumsy career.

Paul Dreyfus, once his long-suffering boss played by Eric Rupp, now turned into a raving lunatic, holds the world at bay with the ultimate weapon, the Doomsday Machine. l

Based on the popular film series by Blake Edwards and Frank Waldman, and directed by Erin Guard of Drexel Hill, the production concludes Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22-23.

Friday and Saturday evening performances begin at 8 p.m., with the Sunday matinee beginning at 2 p.m.

Tickets are $14 for the evening performances, $12 for the matinee, and $8 for children under 12. Tickets may be purchased at the box office, which opens 45 minutes before showtime. They are also available online at the theater’s website:

As part of a benefit for Philabundance, Colonial is hosting a food drive for the duration of the show’s run. Patrons who bring in a non-perishable food item will receive $1 off the ticket price.

Colonial Playhouse is located at Ridley and Magnolia avenues. For more information on the show, or directions, call the box office at 610-622-5773 or visit
