(POMPTON LAKES, NJ) -- StageWorks is presenting "Vanities" at Studio 237 from September 15-18. This bittersweet comedy is an astute, snapshot-sharp chronicle of the lives of three Texas girls. Photographer John Posada was at a dress rehearsal to take photos.

In 1963, Joanne, Kathy, and Mary are aggressively vivacious cheerleaders. Five years later in their college sorority house, they are confronting their futures with nervous jauntiness. In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York. Their lives have diverged and their friendship, which once thrived on assumptions as well-coordinated as sweater sets, is strained and ambiguous. Old time banter rings false. Their attempts at honest conversation only show they can no longer afford to have very much in common.

The cast includes Rachel Alt as Kathy; Leslie Darcy as Joanne, and Holly Cerelli as Mary.  The production is directed by Leslie Darcy.
