MADISON, NJ – Summer theater returns to Madison tonight with the debut of “Edges” at Drew University.

A contemporary song-cycle about young adults at the metaphorical edge of their lives, "Edges" has been performed by actors in theatres all over the world, according to Music Theatre International.

Performances will take place Aug. 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 12 at 2 p.m. in the Directing Lab at the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts, located inside Drew University at 36 Madison Ave.

“Edges” was written and directed by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who recently won an Oscar for their song “City of Stars” from the film “La La Land,” and multiple Tony Awards for their Broadway musical, “Dear Evan Hansen.” Danielle Constance, director; Karen Romero, musical director and James Sullivan, technical director, round out the play's behind-the-scenes heavy hitters.

Sponsored by Writers Theatre of New Jersey and the Madison Recreation Department, tonight's performance, known as the “Senior Show," features Madison-area residents ages 14-24 in three performances. These shows are part of the second installment of the Writers Theatre Summer Youth Theatre program.

Every summer, participants work for weeks to perfect their performances, Writers Theatre said.

“The emphasis of the experience is on the creative process, collaboration and professional craft,” Writers Theatre said. “The participants are treated like professionals and are expected to treat the work and their responsibilities in it as such.”
