The Office actors visit Wilkes-Barre

wbs-office_200.jpgIn town for the first-ever The Office Convention this weekend, several members of the Emmy Award-winning sitcom stopped by the Wachovia Arena on Friday night for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins’ game against the Albany River Rats.

The winner of the 2006 Emmy Award for outstanding comedy series, The Office is set in Scranton, Pa., and follows the workaday world of employees of the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper company.

Pictured with Penguins mascot Tux are, from left, actors Craig Robinson (“Darryl”), Angela Kinsey (“Angela”), Brian Baumgartner (“Kevin”) and Kate Flannery (“Meredith”).

The show makes frequent references to the Scranton region, and a 2006 episode featured a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins jersey.
