“A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES” NOW ONSTAGE @ STNJ IN MADISON

I have seen this enchanting production at STNJ twice, and I am looking forward to seeing it again. Bring the family for a Welsh celebration of Christmas, told in Dylan Thomas’ beautiful, melodious language.

A Child's Christmas in Wales 
By Dylan Thomas
Adapted for the stage by Jeremy Brooks and Adrian Mitchell
Directed by Joseph Discher
Musical Direction by Robert Long

WHEN: November 30 and run through January 1
WHERE: F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre, 36 Madison Avenue in Madison (on the Drew University campus)
TICKETS: Single tickets start as low as $25 for preview performances and $32 for regular performances. Prices range from $25 - $75. This season, The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is initiating their 30 UNDER 30 Program, which offers $30 tickets for patrons aged 30 and under, with valid ID, tickets subject to availability.
For performance times and tickets to this musical celebration, call the Box Office 973-408-5600 or online at www.ShakespeareNJ.org.

Based on Thomas’ classic story about his childhood holidays in Wales in the early 1900s, this beautiful piece about a time gone by rejoices in the simple joys of childhood, the spirit of goodness, the comfort of family, and the magic that music and imagination bring to us all. Veteran company member Joseph Discher returns to direct, and Greg Jackson returns for his sixteenth season to play Dylan Thomas, after most recently appearing as the leading actor in A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder on Broadway. 

In its previous run at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, critics and audiences alike praised A Child’s Christmas in Wales, declaring, there’s “no other work that conveys the joy and spirit of Christmas as well” (The Star-Ledger). The production features traditional music from the British Isles, and in this 2016 production, actor Andy Paterson, who played Dylan Thomas in STNJ’s previous productions, will return, graduating to the role of Glyn.

Says Laurie Berkner, "One of my favorite things about the winter holidays is playing our Laurie Berkner Band holiday shows! I love singing the songs I grew up celebrating with (plus some new favorites!) and sharing them with the kids and families who so generously allow us to become part of their holiday traditions."

The Laurie Berkner Band's concerts will celebrate the season with such traditional, secular songs as "Jingle Bells," and "Frosty the Snowman," plus originals from Laurie's well-loved album, A Laurie Berkner Christmas, like "Santa's Coming to My House Tonight." Laurie and the band will pay tribute to Hanukkah with "Candle Chase" and "The Dreidel Song." They'll also perform an array of Laurie's greatest hits, such as "We Are The Dinosaurs," "Victor Vito," and "Pig On Her Head," along with several soon-to-be classics from Laurie's new album, Superhero. Kids should plan to bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads), and Laurie hopes everyone will join in the holiday spirit and sing along!

Laurie Berkner's holiday shows have become a beloved seasonal tradition for many families, as essential as chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Enthused Westchester Magazine, "Laurie Berkner is considered a godsend by parents for being one of a handful of children's musicians that all members of the family can enjoy in equal measure. If your kids are climbing the walls waiting for Santa to arrive and think they'll burst before December 25, have them let off some steam seeing Berkner in concert."

Dubbed "one of children's music's biggest success stories" by USA Today, Laurie Berkner's original songs, albums, DVDs, music videos, and books leave no doubt: Laurie is the uncrowned queen of children's music and the power behind the progressive "kindie rock" movement.

Laurie Berkner was the first artist to ever appear in music videos on Nick Jr. and was featured in nearly all the episodes of the channel's Jack's Big Music Show. She currently stars in the animated musical short-form series Sing It, Laurie! on the Sprout preschool channel and has made frequent appearances on Sprout's Sunny Side Up morning show. Laurie is also a familiar presence on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live.

A former preschool music teacher by day and indie rocker by night, Laurie Berkner started selling her music nearly twenty years ago out of her living room on her own label, Two Tomatoes Records. Laurie has received tremendous critical acclaim. Time Magazine lauded Laurie as "a kind of sippy-cup Sheryl Crow ... Berkner inhabits a kid's curious perspective in her lyrics and pens folk-pop melodies that bear repeated—very repeated—listenings." The Wall Street Journal called Laurie "one of the most popular children's performers in America ... her music is distinctive because it speaks to kids without talking down to them, charming youngsters without boring grown-ups."

Watch Laurie Berkner in action on her Youtube channel HERE.

The Laurie Berkner Band features Laurie Berkner, vocals/guitar; Susie Lampert, keyboards; Brady Rymer, bass; and Bobby Golden, drums/percussion.

In Tom Stoppard's best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

Please visit https://harmonium.yapsody.com/ to purchase tickets.  For assistance or more information, contact manager@harmonium.org or 973-538-6969.

Artistic Director Dr. Anne J. Matlack leads the acclaimed 100-voice choral society in presenting a luminous program featuring Frank Martin’s double choir Mass. The concert also features works by Esenvalds, Dove, Sweelinck, and Fairouz; Swiss and Dutch carols; and multicultural gems.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA“Frank Martin’s Mass has been called the perfect “Swiss” work—with its tension between Germanic counterpoint and sensuous French harmonies,” explains Dr. Matlack. “It is a hugely important work of the 20th century choral canon, often neglected because of its difficulty—yet it has amazing audience appeal. Because Martin spent much of his life in the Netherlands as well, we are performing a charming set of Dutch carols, which is a new language for Harmonium to sing in and a fun challenge.  We also continue our love affair with Latvian-American composer Erik Esenvalds, performing two works about the Northern Lights, including the use of water glasses and chimes.”

Harmonium Choral Society, based in Morris County, is one of New Jersey's leading choral arts organizations. The 100-voice choral society has been recognized for its musical excellence and innovative programming, and has commissioned and premiered works by Amanda Harberg, Matthew Harris, Elliot Z. Levine, Harmonium's composers-in-residence Mark Miller and Marty Sedek, and others. Directed by Dr. Anne J. Matlack of Madison, Harmonium’s season consists of four subscription concerts held in December, March, April, and June, as well as numerous special events and partnerships.  Harmonium, known for its eclectic programming, choral excellence, and community spirit, sponsors commissions and musicianship workshops, as well as an Outreach Chorus that performs in schools, nursing homes, and other venues.  Harmonium’s annual High School Student Choral Composition Contest, winner of the prestigious Chorus America Education and Outreach Award, celebrates its 20th anniversary this season. Harmonium has toured internationally to England and Wales, Eastern Europe, Northern Italy, Spain and Portugal, and Greece and Turkey, and most recently traveled to the Baltics this past summer.

A JOHN DENVER CHRISTMAS!

TICKETS: $29.00 to $44.00
Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the Box Office at 973-383-3700.

A John Denver Christmas!, starring Ted Vigil, is a heart-warming tribute which has become a holiday tradition at the Newton Theatre.

Celebrate the holidays with the beloved songs of the Rocky Mountain troubadour, featuring cherished songs such as Rocky Mountain High, Annie’s Song, Sunshine on My Shoulder and all of Denver’s hits, as well as some of the holiday season’s best loved songs. Vigil, whose remarkable physical and vocal resemblance to Denver, will charm the audience in this inspirational tribute to John Denver and his musical legacy!

Ted Vigil has always had a love of music and the stage. The Seattle native began singing for audiences at an early age, starting in the church folk band at eight years old, and continued singing in musical productions in high school. In 2006 Ted won the national title for "Talent Quest" in Laughlin Nevada, which prompted him to create his John Denver Tribute show.

Ted developed this tribute into a national act. He performs all over the country including the John Denver Festival and The CMA Fan Fair Festival in Nashville. In 2010 Ted performed with John Denver's lead guitarist Steve Weisberg, which became a highlight of his career.

His gift for music and his polished and energetic performing style have earned him many dedicated fans. The most common comments after his shows are, "I can't believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver!"

Like Denver, Ted shares his passion for bringing people together with his music, drawing in audiences of all ages. His love for people, family, and communities working together for great causes, continue to be his main inspiration.

BROADWAY STAR ROB MCCLURE RETURNS TO HIS ROOTS FOR BENEFIT CONCERT PERFORMANCE ON DECEMBER 11TH

AND BACK AGAIN!

One-Night-Only Benefit Kickstarts Bergen County Players' 85th Sapphire Anniversary Season

WHEN: Sunday, December 11th, at 7:30 PM
WHERE:
The Little Firehouse Theatre at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell
TICKETS: $65 and $50
Tickets can be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, or by calling 201-261-4200, or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell during regular box office hours. Included in the ticket price is a special dessert reception immediately following the performance where audience members can mingle with the artist. All net proceeds will go toward the purchase of new, comfortable seats and other d├ęcor renovations.

To help kickstart its upcoming 85th sapphire anniversary season, the Bergen County Players (BCP) is pleased to present acclaimed Tony Award-nominated and BCP alum Rob McClure (currently starring on Broadway as Nick Bottom in Something Rotten!) in a special one-night-only benefit concert performance. McClure returns to his roots at the Little Firehouse Theatre in Oradell to celebrate his own personal journey through story and song, special guests (both people and puppets!), and lots of laughs and memories from McClure's leading roles in Something Rotten!, Chaplin: The Musical, Honeymoon in Vegas, Noises Off and Avenue Q.

James Sampliner, veteran music director of New York and regional theater, will provide musical accompaniment and supervision.

Emerging over the last decade as one of the top stars of Broadway, Rob McClure has been described as "an immensely likeable star" (USA Today), "a gifted physical comedian" (Entertainment Weekly), a "Broadway star" (NY Newsday) and who, as Chaplin, provides "an enigmatic, career-making performance" (Chicago Tribune).

McClure is perhaps best known for his Tony-nominated portrayal of Charlie Chaplin in Chaplin: The Musical which earned him not only a Tony Nomination but Drama League, Astaire and Outer Critics Circle nominations and Theatre World and Clive Barnes awards. His additional Great White Way credits include starring roles in the critically-acclaimed Broadway musical Honeymoon in Vegas opposite Tony Danza, which garnered him a 2015 Drama League Award nomination, the acclaimed revival of Noises Off, the Tony Award-winning best musical Avenue Q, and the City Encores' production of Where's Charley?.

Born and raised in New Milford, McClure got his start on stage at New Milford High. He then branched out with the Bergen County Players, where he performed from 1998 to 2000 in Gypsy, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Oliver!, before being recognized with the Rising Star Award from the Paper Mill Playhouse. He received his professional start at the Paper Mill in the 2002 revival of I'm Not Rappaport, which later transferred to Broadway. With this benefit performance, McClure finds himself coming "home" to share some of his favorite songs and stories with those who helped him make his mark.

A favorite on the Philadelphia theater scene, McClure won two Barrymore Awards for Best Actor in a Musical for his performances at the Arden Theatre and 11th Hour Theatre Company, and he starred as Mozart in Amadeus at the Walnut Street Theatre. He made his film debut in the award-winning short, "Recursion," directed by Sam Buntrock, for which he won Best Actor at The Queen's World Film Festival and The Williamsburg Independent Film Festival. He made his TV debut guest starring on the CBS series, "Person Of Interest."

Those interested in learning more about the Bergen County Players, including remaining performances of their current season, can go to www.bcplayers.org or visit the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell, or call (201) 261-4200.

Parking is free for patrons at the Park Avenue municipal lot, across the street, one-half block north of the theater.

FREE STAGED READING OF “THE KILLING OF SISTER GEORGE” THIS SATURDAY IN CHESTER

 

WHEN: December 3 at 8:00 PM
WHERE: Chester Theatre Group, Black River Playhouse, 54 Grove Street (at the corner of Maple Avenue), Chester
TICKETS: This is a free event, so no ticket purchase is necessary. A suggested donation of $5 per person will gratefully be accepted at the theater. All seating is general admission.

A scathing examination of the public and private lives of so-called "cultural icons." "Sister George" is a beloved character on a popular BBC soap opera, a cheerful nurse who bicycles about the countryside singing hymns and doing good.

In private life, June Buckridge the actress, is a swaggering, foul-mouthed, alcoholic lesbian in a long-term relationship with waifish Alice "Childie" McNaught. Due to low ratings, cut-backs and June's own bad behavior, the BBC decides to "kill Sister George" on the series. A visit from Miss Mercy Croft, a no-nonsense network executive bearing the bad news, sends George into meltdown.

Featuring

  • Carla Kendall as Madame Xenia
  • Gloria Lamoureux as June Buckridge
  • Lauri MacMillan as Mercy Croft
  • Dawn Morvillo as Alice 'Childie' McNaught

Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.dreamcatcherrep.org, or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.

Kick off the holiday season with the Dreamcatcher Company with their annual irreverent spoof of the holiday specials of yesteryear. If you enjoyed the corny fun of those old-fashioned holiday variety shows starring Donny and Marie, Perry Como and The Mandrell Sisters, you’ll love A Very Special (Holiday) Special at Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre. Dreamcatcher takes a break from their mainstage schedule to perform their affectionate send-up of traditional holiday entertainment.

The Dreamcatcher Resident Acting Company will entertain with holiday songs, comic sketches and improv, and lots of good old-fashioned fun. Each year’s show is original; past years’ performances included an ode to binge shopping, a spoof of Hallmark Channel movies and a holiday cooking show gone bad. This year’s show will include musical spoofs, topical sketches, and unique silliness.  Performing in the show are Dreamcatcher Company members Clark Carmichael, Harry Patrick Christian, Laura Ekstrand, Noreen Farley, Scott McGowan, Jason Szamreta, and perhaps a special guest or two.

Parking is available in the lot behind the theatre on Ashwood Avenue and at the Summit Recreation Center on Morris Avenue, as well as on the street.  The facility is wheelchair accessible.
