FANWOOD, NJ -- The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Next Stage Ensemble will present William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the front lawn of the Fanwood Memorial Library on Friday, August 8th from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. 

One of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy that portrays the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors (mechanicals) who are controlled by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set.

“Every summer we have programs for children and families on Mondays as part of our summer schedule,” said Susan Staub, children’s librarian and Fanwood Memorial Library.  “This year we had a small Shakespeare workshop for young people to put on some scenes and this presentation (rescheduled from July 14) is in conjunction with it.  Bring blankets or lawn chairs; we are hoping for wonderful weather and a great turnout.”

Politics IS Government in Union County

April 21, 2018

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County Freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting Freeholder, I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
