(HACKETTSTOWN, NJ) -- Centenary Stage Company’s Young Performers Workshop heads into the final weekend of performances for their 2022 Summer Festival of Shows. Performances will run through August 14 in the Little Theatre located at 400 Jefferson St, Hackettstown, NJ. Registration for the Fall 2022 Session of the Young Performers Workshop is also open, and the deadline to register is September 9.
I Do! I Do! I Do! I Do! Is a musical with book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt. The story of soul mates navigating life together, the show begins with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day. Their vows behind them, they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. We watch as they go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family, and negotiate midlife crises. Michael eventually admits to his infidelity, and, although Agnes is angered by his actions, she forgives him, and the couple reconciles. They rediscover how much they really need each other. Then, after fifty years of marriage, the couple leaves their house to the next pair of newlyweds. Performances will take place on Saturday, August 13 at 7:00pm; and Sunday, August 14 at 7:00pm. Tickets are $12.50 for adults and $10.00 for students and children under 12.
A Coupla White Chicks Sitting Around Talking is a comedy set in the suburban Westchester County kitchen of Maude Mix, who is having a tough day: her husband is off on a weekend spree with his secretary, and she can't get rid of the pesky neighbor who has just moved up from Texas. Hannah Mae Bindler badgers Maude into friendship and the two eventually join forces against their errant and erring husbands. Performances will take place on Friday, August 12 at 8:00pm; Saturday, August 13 at 2:00pm; and Sunday, August 14 at 2:00pm. Tickets are $12.50 for adults and $10.00 for students and children under 12.
Two for Four is a series of one-act plays. A one-act play is a production that is shorter than a typical length play that features one act with no intermission.
