Many Northeast Pennsylvania residents say that there is nothing to do. On the contrary, there are a lot of activities going on in the area this March.

Valley View High School, in Archbald, will be putting on a three-day production of “West Side Story” the weekend of March 1-3.

Interested in stage or screenwriting? Then, come on down to the Dietrich Theater in Tunkhannock for Writers’ Group on March 7 at 7 p.m.

The Northeast Pennsylvania Guitar Trio wil be performing at Marywood University’s Marian Chapel on March 2.

Look for some great Broadway shows coming to the Scranton Cultural Center this spring. According to Broadwayscranton.com, many great shows will be presented there including “Stomp,” March 2, and “Peter Pan” in April.

Scranton also offers a great nightlife at Poor Richard’s Pub. According to their website, Southsidebowl.com, they offer both karaoke and music.

Not your type of bar or club? Well, there are more varieties at Mulligan’s and Backyard Ale House.

Another annual tradition in Scranton this month is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 9. Party with friends or enjoy a fantastic day with the family.

The Northeast Pennsylvania area is full of so many fun and exciting activities. You just need to look into what’s going on everyday. Despite its negative criticisms, NEPA is definitely not a boring place to be.
