|Dear Trilogy Repertory friends,|
Following a great run of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change at the beautiful Sieminski Theater at Fellowship Village in Bernards Township in April, Trilogy announced the rest of the 2023 productions:
In its 42nd year producing “Plays in the Park” at the Pleasant Valley Park amphitheater in Basking Ridge, Trilogy will stage Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, July 13,14,15, and 20, 21, 22. This popular Rice and Webber musical tells the biblical story of Joseph and his trials and tribulations after being sold off as a slave to Egypt by his brothers. There is drama, comedy, a very catchy musical score and, of course, a happy ending. Directing the musical will be Joseph Schmidt with musical direction by Emily Bengels.
Also, as part of the “Plays in the Park” for 2023 Trilogy will produce The Play that Went Wrong. This is a hilarious play within a play where audiences enjoy a series of on-stage and backstage disasters by cast, crew and an uncooperative set in an amateur effort to stage a murder mystery. Don’t ask what can go wrong, just come see it happen. Performances will be July 28,29 and August 3, 4, 5. Peter Curley will be directing the production.
On September 29, 30, October 6, 7 at 7:30PM and October 1 at 2:30 PM, Trilogy will once again be at the Sieminski Theater to stage A Man of No Importance, with music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and a book by Terrence McNally. The show tells of a director determined to present an amateur production of Oscar Wilde’s Salome at his local church as he is faced with objections and obstacles in his efforts. This clever and charming musical will be directed by Angela Masi.
