(BRANCHBURG, NJ) -- Raritan Valley Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Department will present a student theatre production of Bernard Slade’s Return Engagements, November 15-18, at 7:00pm. This ingenious comedy, written by the author of Same Time Next Year, is composed of six vignette scenes taking place from 1954-1986. It features nine characters who grow, age, learn where they belong, and discover how they are ultimately linked together as “family.”
Slade’s clever romance introduces us to a panorama of characters including a Polish World War II refugee, an acid-tongued columnist and his psychotherapist spouse, an anxiety-ridden dentist, a besotted bellboy and his true love, and an ambitious actress.
The play is directed by Danielle Barry (Somerville), RVCC Adjunct Associate Professor. Technical direction is by David Porter (Clinton Township) and Kenny Savoy (Piscataway). Paige Hann is acting as stage manager (Phillipsburg).
The cast consists of Kevin Asiain (Somerset), Allyson DeMarco (Flemington), Aubrey Holzman (Washington Township), Philip Husbands (Somerset), Fred Lopatosky (North Plainfield), Renae Raymond (Washington Township), Ashley Tirado (High Bridge), and Zachary Volk (Hampton).
Additional technical crew members include Matt Binkowitz (Westfield), Gabriel Bonilla (Bridgewater), Leah Conner (Manville), Stephanie Garzon (Bound Brook), Christa Iazzetta (South Plainfield), James Meier (Bridgewater), Christian Ramos-Salazar (Somerville), and Laura Ryan (Oxford).
