Beauty and the Beast Jr Summer Program

August 13 - 24, 2018
https://bit.ly/2IbVhJK

Based on the original Broadway production nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. Featuring songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for eternity.

If you are interested in joining the program, please email info@pixiedustplayers.org to join the waiting list.

Man Of The House

August 11, 2018
https://bit.ly/2r5O3x2

Use discount code EARLYBIRD only until 5/31 at 11:59 PM for $5 off a ticket in any section!

The #1 Urban Stageplay Man Of The House is a drama/comedy that tackles domestic abuse with a twist. In this scenario, the man is the victim as opposed to the abuser. The comedy never centers on the actual abuse. Therefore, audiences are being entertained and educated at the same time. This stageplay has also been picked up by various colleges, including the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and William Paterson University, and incorporated as an educational tool for domestic abuse. Now in its fourth year, this production is going on the road, with its first stop: Rahway, NJ. Don't wait! This show sells out very quickly. Purchase your tickets today and come out to see why "Man Of The House" is still The #1 Urban Stageplay.

VIP includes premiere seating, Meet and Greet with the cast, and (1) play soundtrack.

The McCartney Years

August 4, 2018
https://bit.ly/2I079w2

The McCartney Years is endorsed by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Denny Laine, and former Beatles promoter, Sid Bernstein, as being "...the BEST on the scene." One of the top touring tribute bands in the country, The McCartney Years takes the audience on a journey of Paul McCartney's greatest performances and songs.
YURI POOL AS PAUL MCCARTNEY (LEAD VOCALS, BASS, GUITAR, PIANO)
Yuri has made The McCartney Years a period-true and technically stunning show. Whether he’s playing a real McCartney-era Höfner or emulating the same wardrobe from the “Wings over America” mid-70s tour, Yuri is true to Sir Paul in his vocal stylings and presentation on tracks like “Live and Let Die,” “Let it Be,” “The Long and Winding Road,” and “Jet.” His commitment to 100% live and accurate reproductions of McCartney’s concert experience started in his native Holland, continued in one of the bigger travelling Beatles shows in the UK, and has set the standard for all who might follow in this body of work.

Les Paul From Start To Finish

June 29 - 30, 2018
https://bit.ly/2JR1NTr

Mr. James J. Wysocki is a retired police officer of Mahwah Township, NJ and an assistant curator with the Mahwah Museum. He spent 30 years with the force, but made one special friendship that would provide inspiration for years to come. After an evening snowfall in 1981, Jim received a call from resident Les Paul. To Jim, Les was simply a citizen in need of help, not the guitar legend that we know him to be. The events which transpired after this visit form the basis of Mr. Wysocki's program—Les Paul From Start To Finish. Jim presents a snapshot of their 29-year friendship—the honesty, the generosity, and the shared laughter included. After the 90 minute presentation, Jim will show the guitars and personal items given to him by Les. Patrons are encouraged to handle some items with supervision. Music aficionados and historians will walk away with a better understanding of Les Paul's contributions to electric guitar, sound recording, and his visionary examples within the music industry.

In Front of the Shadows

May 11 - 13, 2018
https://bit.ly/2KiW1uU

This is a collection of monologues and scenes written especially for women. Everyone has a story...a shadow. Something from the past they’ve overcome. Something that they’re still challenged with. Something that they’re about to confront. There’s an old saying that when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. When you find yourself hidden in the shadows of life, push through and demand your spotlight in front of the shadows. Not recommended for audiences under 16.

Anything But Goodbye

May 24, 2018
https://bit.ly/2HWKDGB

Anything But Goodbye is an original, one-act musical written to aid in the fight against teen suicide. Packed with intense scenes and a powerful contemporary score, this show provides an authentic window into the world of young adults, ultimately offering a vision of light. For many of the 500 students who attended the production’s first mounting, it was their first experience with theatre. Fostering an ongoing relationship with the arts is another important initiative for this event.

The shocking suicide of a student has sent a shockwave through Dumont High School. The heartbreak and confusion is only compounded by buried secrets, break-ups, college pressure, and broken home lives. While the school prepares for an anti-suicide rally, the students are forced to face the harsh truth of their realities head on. Some choose love and compassion. Others, hate and self-harm. Ultimately, they must decide who they want to be and how they will make their world a place they want to live in.
