Penn Center presents live nativity scene

Historic Penn Center presented its annual Nativity Scene on Sunday, Dec. 16, in the Frissell Community House. According to Penn’s website, the play was originally called Penn School’s Mystery Play and performed at the center’s Darrah Hall. The play ran uninterrupted from 1916 to 1953. The current adaptation was the creation of the late Agnes C. Sherman, who coordinated the production from 1971 through 1997.
