Rumors by Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, PA March 12, 2019 Review submitted by Patrick McCann of Harriton High School Rumor has it that the Belfry Club of Germantown Academy is putting on a farcical comedy, and that it is every bit as frantic, chaotic, and hilariously messy as any farce enthusiast could hope for!
