In brief: Naughty musical coming to arts center

JOHNSTOWN — Tickets go on sale today for a new show at Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center, Richland Township.

Original songs include “They Get Nasty,” “I Don’t Make Love” and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me.”

Like the book series, the musical is not recommended for those younger than age 18.

Tickets are $39 and $35.
