LIVINGSTON, NJ — As the Livingston Community Players’ (LCP) one-night-only “Holiday Musicale” concert and sing-along approaches, members of the LCP reminds area residents to reserve tickets to this musical holiday celebration in support of the award-winning community theater group.

All of the performers have a history with LCP—some going back nearly 40 years.

Accompanist Ann Marie Cerciello’s ties to LCP, for instance, go back to 1987, when at various points she produced, directed, music directed, and filled many other positions associated with community theater. Cerciello stated that she has kept LCP “next to her heart for many years” and is excited about having another opportunity to collaborate with her longtime theater friends.

Director Ilene Greenbaum began with LCP more than 40 years ago and has had a long career in music direction for numerous New Jersey theatre companies.

“I will always remember that it was LCP that gave me my start as a Music Director and Conductor,” said Greenbaum. “I am happy to be able to give something back after all these years and to be sharing this endeavor with many old LCP friends and colleagues.”

LCP is sponsored by Livingston Senior, Youth & Leisure Services and is a Member of the Arts Council of Livingston. In conformance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, participation of individuals with disabilities is welcome and valued. LCP strives for maximum inclusion and accommodation of individuals with a disability.
