Laramie Project: Bergen County Players

The Laramie Project

Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 2pm
Sunday, May 20, 2012 at 7pm
An intense one-act drama described by Time Magazine as “a pioneering and powerful stage event” about the gay-bashing murder of Matthew Shepard on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming.

An award-winning play that was turned into both a powerful film and TV movie, this dramatic 90 minute production draws on the hundreds of interviews conducted by the Tectonic Theater Project following this highly-publicized 1998 hate crime.

Please be prepared for mature content and language.

Please join us for a special post-show Talkback session immediately following each performance of The Laramie Project.

Portions of the proceeds will benefit
The Tyler Clementi Foundation.

Is There Life After High School: Bergen County Players

The musical
Is There Life After High School?

May 5 – June 3, 2012
Is There Life After High School? If there is, what are its lingering effects on our lives? Join this group of “alumni” as they explore this theme through music, dance and monologues when they look back on their high school years with a mixture of nostalgia, horror, humor and emotions.

Both hilariously awkward and heartbreakingly painful, this tuneful pastiche reflects upon the momentously traumatic high school moments that last a lifetime. Remember your first kiss? That time you took first place? How about the kids who were your best friends…and the ones who weren’t?

Reserve your spot early as this “class” will fill up quickly!

Parade: 4th Wall Theatre


With lyrics and music by Jason Robert Brown, and a book by Alfred Uhry, PARADE is based on the true story of the 1913 trial of Jewish factory manager Leo Frank, who was accused and convicted of raping and murdering a thirteen-year-old employee, Mary Phagan in Atlanta, Georgia. The sensationalized trial aroused anti-Semitic tensions in Georgia. When Frank’s death sentence was commuted to life in prison by the Governor, Frank was kidnapped and killed. The events surrounding the investigation and trial led to two groups emerging, the revival of the defunct KKK and the birth of the Jewish Anti-Defamation League.

Brown and Uhry won Tony awards for their work on this musical. Brown also wrote the musicals 13, The Last Five Years, Urban Cowboy and Songs for a New World, which 4th Wall produced 2002. Uhry is best known for writing Driving Miss Daisy and The Last Night of Ballyhoo. He is the only individual to receive an Academy Award, Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for dramatic writing.

Assassins: The Barn Theatre

Book by John Weidman
Music by Stephen Sondheim
Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Based on an idea by Charles Gilbert, Jr.

This most American of musicals lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and, in an intense final scene, inspire each other to commit harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.

TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE
by Jeffrey Hatcher & Mitch Albom
June 1 – 17, 2012

The autobiographical look at an accomplished journalist driven solely by his career, and Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Sixteen years after graduation, Mitch happens to catch Morrie’s appearance on a television news program and learns that his old professor is battling Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Mitch is reunited with Morrie, and what starts as a simple visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a last class in the meaning of life.
