SUMMIT, NJ - Pebble Players will present the Tony Award-winning musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone November 8-10 and 15-17.  The hilarious show won 13 Tony Awards in 2006, including Best Book and Best Score.

The story begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan puts his favorite show album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a jazz-age Broadway starlet trying to choose between love and fame.  When a pair of scheming gangsters try to keep her on stage, and a love-sick leading man tries to pull her off, the story never slows.  Scheming, dancing, blackmail and mayhem ensue.  

Dance sequences feature tap and jazz numbers performed to a soundtrack that pays homage to the golden age of musicals.  A non-stop storyline and on-stage dramatics will have kids and adults equally entertained, making this feel-good musical good for all ages.  In it's Broadway incarnation, the New York Times described the show as a "revved-up spoof of a 1920's song-and-dance frolic... poised to become the sleeper hit of the Broadway season," with an "ingenious narrative framework" and songs "that [lift] the audience into a helium paradise of pure pleasure."
 
 
Pebble Players, Summit's treasured youth theater group, will knock your socks off with this incredible cast of actors ages 13-18 from all over northern New Jersey.  The teens produce professional work, and give adults in the business a run for their money.  Summit's own Jayne Myers is directing the show joined by choreographer Jaimie Bass, and Musical Director, Joe Moser.  The Drowsy Chaperone music and lyrics were written by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, with the book by Bob Martin and Don McKellar.
 
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for kids (18-under), and are available by visiting pebbleplayers.org or drowsychaperone.brownpapertickets.com.

Fear of Rising Rates? Remember The Reason You Own Bonds

If the current interest environment has you concerned about your bond portfolio, remember why you are investing in bonds.  The role bonds, or fixed income, play in a portfolio is not solely based on performance.  Bonds are used to offer stability, particularly when stock market volatility is rising. Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
