BERGEN COUNTY PLAYERS OPENS ITS 82ND SEASON WITH FIVE-TIME TONY AWARD WINNING MUSICAL

1735THE DROWSY CHAPERONE
book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar
music and lyrics by Lisa Lambert and Reg Morrison
directed by Steve Bell

WHEN: September 6 through October 11, 2014. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM (with the exception of October 3rd and 4th) and Sundays at 2 PM.
WHERE: T
he Little FirehouseTheatre, 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell
TICKETS: $24 for all performances. Discount tickets for students age 25 and under with proper ID are available for $14 by phone or walk-up only.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, by calling 201-261-4200 or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell during regular box office hours. Visa, Master Card, and American Express are accepted.
Those interested in Group Sales of 20 or more tickets can call 201.261.4200 (Mailbox #6).
Parking is free at the Park Avenue municipal lot, across the street, one-half block north of the theater.

As it has for the past few seasons, BCP will continue to offer a “Questions & Artists” (Q&A) discussion following select performances. The Drowsy Chaperone Q&A will kick off immediately following the September 12, 2014 performance. Admission is included in the cost of the ticket.

This charming and slightly wacky tribute to the musicals of the 1920s is a rare combination of modern wit and classic musical comedy. Regarded as “a musical within a comedy,” The Drowsy Chaperone begins when a modern day, die-hard musical theater fan known simply as “Man in Chair” plays his favorite cast album, the fictional 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone, on his turntable. As the overture starts the musical bursts to life in his studio apartment, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet giving up her life on the stage to marry her true love, and her producer so desperate to keep his showgirl that he will go to great lengths to stop the nuptials. With an elaborate cast of over-the-top characters, including the dashing groom, his best man, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a Latin lover, and a drunken chaperone, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in everyone’s heart - to be entertained.

The talented cast of The Drowsy Chaperone includes Will Nolan (Man in Chair), Janica Carpenter (Mrs. Tottendale), Brian Feldman (Underling), Craig Woodward (Robert Martin), Bill Cantor (Feldzieg), Debbie Zika (Kitty), Paul Aiello (Aldolpho), Danielle Valencia (Janet Van de Graaff), Marian McCabe (Drowsy Chaperone), Nadiya Braham (Trix), Marisa Gore (Gangster), George Kelly (Gangster), Elisabeth Erdmann (Ensemble), Justin Flores (Ensemble), Dan Giordano (Ensemble) and Nikki Simz (Ensemble).

The production team is comprised of Steve Bell (Director), Michele Roth (Producer), Jalm Vanamo (Music Director), Sharla Herbert (Choreographer), Jim Kelly (Assistant to the Director); Paul Reitnauer III (Stage Manager), Greg Cilmi (Set Design), Allan Seward (Lighting Designer), Kathleen Ruland (Lighting Operation), Peter Oliff (Sound Operation), Ellyn Essig (Décor), Lynne Lupfer (Décor), Lauren Zenreich (Décor), Katie Lupfer (Costumes), Melissa Miller (Costumes), Annette Jacobs (Props), Rosemary Deflorio (Props), Marty Obolsky (Props), Pat Bain (Props), Marian Mccabe (Makeup), Joyce Ghia (Dresser), Larry Braverman (Crew), Andrew Whitney (Crew), Alan Zenreich (Photography), Steve Mintz (Photography), Barbara Mintz (Photography) Marci K. Weinstein (Program Notes), Jennifer Cottone (Publicity) and Andrea Pieper (Member At Large).

Bergen County Players has grown tremendously from its roots as a small community theater when it was founded in 1932. Today, nearly 300 volunteer members, working on and off stage, make possible the nine productions presented each season.

Bergen County Players, Inc. is a non-equity, non-profit community theater company dedicated to presenting quality productions for the enrichment of the community.

THE JEWISH PLAYS PROJECT NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR 2015 SEASON

Well hello, folks.

We are delighted to announce that the Jewish Plays Project is now accepting Project Submissions for its 2015 season.

What's New this Year?

In past seasons, we have accepted new work formally through the Jewish Playwriting Contest and informally through a variety of industry channels. This year, we’re combining the two. Every project will go through the same online channel, and it will be up to the primary creative on each to select to which programs they want to submit.

We’re aiming to keep control of your work in the artists' hands. Do the writers want as many opportunities for your new work to be seen, developed, appreciated, and advanced? So do we. They can check all the boxes. Writers want us to look at your new play but don’t want it in the public eye of the Contest? No problem. They can just leave that Contest box blank, and we’ll keep it to ourselves.

We’re also accepting musicals this time around! We developed our first musical last year (Sharyn Rothstein and Kris Kukul’s modern Megillah, Beauty Queen) and really liked it. While musicals don’t quite fit into our Contest or OPEN structure yet, we want to survey the field and find out what’s being created. Can't wait to see 'em!

Click Here for the Full Submission Guidelines

CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT YOUR PLAY

What’s the Same This Year?

Our two main development programs – the Contest and OPEN: Festival of New Jewish Theater at the 14th Street Y - rock on. The Contest will take us around the country, bringing more than 500 diverse and committed lay leaders into the conversation to help us find the material that best represents our community right now. OPEN will light up New York in June, 2015 with the Contest winner and a few additional projects selected by the JPP staff.

What Do We Want To See?

 

Be bold.

Plays that think differently about what Jewish theater can be, strive for epic size and impact, and embrace the emotional, the mystical, the theatrical.

 

 


Be topical.

Writers grappling with social justice, economic justice, diversity, strong women in Jewish life, LGBTQ inclusion, new perspectives on Israel, environmentalism, and interfaith relations. Artists tackling the challenging, the controversial, the provocative. We are unafraid to walk these roads.

 

Be Jewy.

We're asking the field to take a deep look at Jewish ideas, traditions, stories, myths, culture (and yes, even religion). We hope they get into this ancient balagan that’s full of really smart, useful, ethical and moral rules. We want them to show us how they Jew.

That’s it really. Stay tuned to this space to see what we get. Submissiosn are open until October 9.


Submit a play today.

THE NEW JERSEY PREMIERE OF AWARD-WINNING CONTEMPORARY PLAY “WITTENBERG” ​AT THE SHAKESPEARE THEATRE

I am so excited to post this notice about WITTENBERG, being produced at STNJ this September. I attended a staged reading last winter and we recommended that it be produced on the STNJ stage. It is a hilarious take on WHAT IF? And it stars (and is directed) by some of the most talented actors in NJ. Here it is!

STNJ_McKowen WITTENBERG iconWITTENBERG
By David Davalos
Directed by Joseph Discher 

WHEN: begins September 10; Performances are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays at 7:30 PM; Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM; and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 PM
WHERE:
F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre, 36 Madison Ave., Madison
TICKETS: $25 for preview performances and $32 for regular performances. Student rush tickets for all performances are $15, available a half-hour before curtain for with a valid student ID.  
For tickets, call the Box Office at 973.408.5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.

The Shakespeare Theatre is proud to present the New Jersey premiere of the award-winning play Wittenberg by David Davalos, in which he ingeniously manipulates time and space to unite an unusual trio—Doctor Faustus, Martin Luther, and Hamlet—for a witty and provocative debate about faith, fate, existence, and tennis. The “big questions,” the enigmas that eternally puzzle mankind, are given clever and delightfully quirky forum in this contemporary riff on the age-old and eternal conudrums. The Washington Post promises, Wittenberg “should delight Tom Stoppard fans, recovering English majors, disillusioned academics and anyone who has ever wondered what Helen of Troy was like in the sack.”

A play that the Philadelphia Inquirer winkingly celebrates as “Finally—a decent Protestant Reformation comedy!”, Wittenberg begins in northern Germany, the year 1517, on the University of Wittenberg campus. Young Hamlet, prince of Denmark, is a senior, unsure of his beliefs after an eye-opening summer spent studying abroad. Upon his return to school, he seeks guidance from his two trusted professors—philosopher John Faustus and theologian Martin Luther.

Inspiration struck when Davalos, an actor as well as playwright, worked on a production of Hamlet. As he listened in the wings to the young prince’s speeches, he considered the prince’s intellectual and religious background, the foundation of Shakespeare’s tragedy. Both Hamlet’s mother Gertrude and his scheming uncle, the new king Claudius, plead with the prince to “go not to Wittenberg,” declaring “for your intent in going back to school in Wittenberg, it is most retrograde to our desire” (Act I, scene ii). Davalos, speaking with the San Antonio Current, said he began to wonder, “what was Hamlet doing in school before Hamlet?”

After nearly eight years of research, Wittenberg premiered in 2008 at Philadelphia’s Arden Theatre Company. The New York premiere followed in 2011; The New York Times declared, “Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.

Davalos deftly combines historical fact and literary fiction in Wittenberg. Martin Luther was the Catholic priest and German monk who protested, amongst many other things, the Catholic Church’s practice of selling indulgences and confronted the practice by penning his Ninety-Five Theses, a scalding indictment of the Catholic Church’s abuses of power.  He famously nailed the pages to the doors of the All Saint’s Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517. Luther was excommunicated and exiled; he became the figurehead of the Protestant Reformation, the movement that ruptured the Catholic Church.

Davalos sets his play Wittenberg mere weeks before Luther’s rebellious act. The university depicted in the play, moments before the start of the Protestant Reformation, is, as Davalos described to the San Antonio Current, “a time and place somewhat like Berkeley in the 1960s, a center for intellectual ferment” and “a certain amount of rebellion.”

Unlike Luther, the character of Doctor Faust is literary fiction, nearly as famous as Hamlet. Beginning as a German legend about a learned scholar who strikes a deal with the Devil—exchanging his soul for earthly pleasures—Faust was most famously depicted in Elizabethan dramatist Christopher Marlowe’s 1604 play The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus and Goethe’s early-19th century editions of Faust. In Goethe’s interpretations, Faust and the Devil travel through time, meeting Helen of Troy; the infamous beauty appears in Davalos’s script as well.

The Studio Museum in Harlem
