Pixie Dust Players Presents Home for the Holidays at UCPAC

(RAHWAY, NJ) -- To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Pixie Dust Players, Union County Performing Arts Center is happy to present Home for the Holidays on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 7:30pm. The event consists of a gala and a benefit concert featuring over 150 performers and music from 24 different shows, all from the past ten years of Pixie Dust Productions. Prior to the concert, there will be a gala with light fare, a magician, and more. Not only is this a fundraiser for UCPAC’s Youth Programming, but also a celebration supporting the continuance of this exciting partnership.

Pixie Dust Players was founded in 2007 by 12 year old Lindsay Maron. What began as a small troupe of young teens touring to nursing homes, children’s hospitals, and special education schools, soon became a full-fledged production company. Since 2008, Pixie Dust has produced 50+ productions including several world premieres and pilot productions.

Offering a wide variety of programs and productions for a large age range and differing experience levels, Pixie Dust strives to provide high quality theatrical opportunities for youth, teens, and young adults to allow them to be touched by the true magic of theatre, whether through performing, working backstage, or discovering new talents within the field. Pixie Dust also continues to fulfill the original mission of bringing the magic of theatre to as many people as possible by touring productions to outreach locations. Most recently, Pixie Dust has begun offering shows to schools as field trips or assembly programs. After taking residence at UCPAC in 2017, Pixie Dust has grown exponentially producing 10+ musicals a year and introducing incredibly exciting and groundbreaking titles. On December 21, we look forward to celebrating our history and looking ahead at what’s to come!

Laiona Michelle Talks About "Little Girl Blue: The Nina Simone Musical"
This might be the right time for Nina Simone—15 years after her death. That’s what Laiona Michelle thinks, and, in a way, Michelle will be testing that idea by bringing the singer-activist to life in a world-premiere musical show at George Street Playhouse. Michelle wrote the show—“Little Girl Blue: The Nina Simone Musical”—and she will appear in the title role at the New Brunswick theater from January 29 through February 24.

Every family has stories. Some are funny. Some are sweet. Some are sad. And some are never shared. Those are often the most powerful.
Rise of the Goatman
Theater For The New City presents Beltsville/Rockville, Part 1: Rise of the Goatman, an original play by Englewood resident Matt Okin (Artistic Director of Black Box Studios), from December 27 through January 13. In this pseudo-Southern Gothic dark comedy, a vibrant group of teens from two very different suburban neighborhoods clash over class differences, drugs, and sex - and the existence of the legendary ‘Goatman’ in 1986. Cut to 2013, and the adolescent kids of those very same teens are struggling to make sense of their family histories - and the same “mythological” creature - that could be holding them back in life.

REVIEW: "It's A Wonderful Life" At Mile Square Theatre
Nestled in a corner of Hoboken, on the second floor, lies the studios of radio station WMST.  It’s a wonderful art deco studio, replete with fine wooden walls, embedded with colorful lights an applause sign.  On stage, we’ve got a few chairs, several microphones and a whole corner wedged with all the necessary props – piano, men’s shoes, sheet metal – to create the audio effects for the production of “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

Betsy Aidem Puts A Woman's Touch On George Street Playhouse's "A Doll's House, Part 2"

Betsy Aidem Puts A Woman's Touch On George Street Playhouse's "A Doll's House, Part 2"

Betsy Aidem is a veteran actress you might have seen on Broadway. Or maybe on an episode of “Law & Order: SVU.” Or maybe on the big screen last year in “The Greatest Showman.” But over the next few weeks in New Brunswick, Aidem is adding a brand-new section to her résumé — by helming a sequel (of sorts) to a classic play that’s more than 100 years old.
