HERSHEY, Pa., Sept. 10, 2015 – Hershey Area Playhouse will host the award-winning folk band, Molasses Creek, for the third straight year on Friday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m., as part of its Dark Night Series productions.

Hailing from Ocracoke Island, N.C., Molasses Creek combines high-energy performances and phenomenal songwriting to bring the love of their coastal home to the stage. The band's elegant harmonies and arrangements, blazing instrumentals, and quirky sense of humor have won loyal followers throughout the United States and around the world.
