After several weeks of hard work in their graphic design class, students David Wong and Celina Marzullo, both residents of Fairfield, were told that their work was selected to be used for the Masquers’ production.

According to their website, Masquers of West Essex is an after-school theatrical productions club. Students are exposed to the hands-on creation of a theatrical production from inception to closing night. Students can be involved both onstage and backstage as part of the cast and the many crews including stage, set, technical, costume, hair and makeup. Casting for productions is based on a non-biased, open audition in front of a panel of faculty.  All students are welcome to audition and participate on crew.
