FLORHAM PARK, NJ- Less than one week remains until the Jerry Gibson Memorial Youth Summer Theater presents Peter Pan.
Beginning Tuesday, showings will be held August 2 through August 6 at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a matinee performance on Saturday, August 6 at 2 p.m. The box office originally opened on July 15. However, tickets are still on sale. They can be purchased at the door or by calling (973) 377-9078. Discounts are offered to senior citizens and students with I.D.
This summer’s performance was directed by William Brockman, choreographed by Bonnie Zwigard and produced by Mary Hupcey.
Beginning in 1981, the Florham Park Players have sponsored the summer youth theater, currently bringing the program to its 36th year. Beginning in 1949, the players have brought dramatic entertainment to the community through performances like Catch Me If You Can, Oklahoma! and The Wizard of Oz. In addition, the summer performances are also made possible through the donations of the Florham Park Recreation Department.
Each year, the seasonal musicals grant 50 to 60 local teenagers the chance to develop their theatrical skills. Some of the past performances include the following: Oliver, Bye Bye Birdie, Guys and Dolls, Grease, Anything Goes and last year’s Mary Poppins. Auditions are held in May, while the performances take place in August. For more information regarding the youth summer theater program, please call Jerry Gibson at (973) 377-9078 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All performances are held at the Ridgedale School Theater, which is located at 71 Ridgedale Avenue. Handicap accessibility is available, but it must be requested at the time of booking.
