Pets and Their Humans, an award-winning play that takes a quirky look at the relationship between pets and their families, will be performed at the First Avenue Playhouse on weekends through September; Friday and Saturday nights between September 7 and 28th, beginning at 8:30 p.m.  A Sunday matinee will take place at 2:30 on September 15.

 In “Pets and Their Humans,” a widower named Brad finds solace by talking to his pets after his wife dies. But then his pets start taking back.  Is Brad going crazy or can he really talk to animals? Jersey Shore playwright Mike Sockol says his own pets inspired for the play. “We give our pets so many human qualities, and I started to wonder why.  What if there is more here than meets the eye? So,I decided to write a play that offers an answer why we have pets in the first place,” said Sockol. “Pets” has been previously performed by theater groups in Rahway and Ocean Grove, New Jersey, and it received two Perry Awards from the New Jersey Association of Community Theaters, including best original play.  More than a dozen of Sockol’s plays have been performed in recent years in New York, New Jersey and West Virginia. The show is directed by Gina Shuster and features a local cast of talented actors, including David Clarke, Danielle Pecchioli, Kathy Janovic, Dani Vogel, Stephen Russo, Kylie Mulvihill and Allegra Tumbleson.  Most of the actors in this family-friendly production range from ages 6 to 15. 

The First Avenue Playhouse, located on 123 First Ave. Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey, is one of the oldest continuously running community theatres in Monmouth County. Located in downtown Atlantic Highlands, The First Avenue Playhouse is a dessert theatre that will soon celebrate its 30th anniversary of providing a variety of live theatre choices, such as comedies, musicals and original productions by local playwrights.
