THE SHAKESPEARE THEATRE OF NEW JERSEY’S  “NEXT STAGE ENSEMBLE”
SUMMER TOURING COMPANY BRINGS  LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST to the

Macculloch Hall Historical Museum Gardens

 

At 4pm on July 24th Macculloch Hall Historical Museum will present LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST performed by The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Next Stage Ensemble summer touring program. Shakespeare’s delightful coming-of-age comedy is a witty and hilarious ode to youthful aspirations, infatuations and follies.  The young King of Navarre, along with three of his loyal friends, decide to dedicate themselves to the “noble pursuit of knowledge” for three full years, locking themselves away from all distractions…especially women.  Their ambitious “ivory tower” is soon shaken, with the arrival of the lovely Princess of France and her three gamesome ladies-in-waiting.  Filled with dazzling wordplay, strong comic characters and a few unexpected twists, LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST not only charms, but also touches the heartstrings of young and old alike.  Director Abigail Isaac (“As You Like It” tour, 2010) returns with an exciting new staging of this delicious Shakespeare confection.

One of several outreach programs offered by The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, the Next Stage Ensemble brings the thrill of a live performance to audiences of all ages throughout New Jersey each summer, while enabling young performers to gain valuable experience in classical theatre and ensemble work.  The Next Stage Ensemble upholds the Shakespearean tradition of a traveling company of actors bringing its theatrical repertory into the community, by performing at hospitals, retirement communities, libraries, camps, schools and community centers.

 

About Macculloch Hall Historical Museum

House tours of the period rooms of the  museum will leave throughout the afternoon starting at 1pm, with the last tour leaving at 3pm. Tours will also visit a wonderful exhibit of American silver, the Coming of Age:  Early American Silversmiths; Masters, Apprentices, Trade Partners and Taste is in the upstairs gallery. The Shakespeare performance will take place at 4pm in the beautiful historic gardens which are resplendent with three acres of elegant plantings. Among the nearly sixty varieties of roses, many considered “heirloom” or pre-1920s, are two bushes that have defied identification and are named “Old Macculloch Hall Roses.” It is possible that these roses survived from the earliest period of the garden’s history.  Guests are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets. Regular admission applies - Adults $6; Seniors & Students $5; Members and children under 12 are free.  We are pleased to offer accessible restroom facilities during garden events this summer. If there is inclement weather the programs will be moved inside the Museum.   

 

  Macculloch Hall Historical Museum is a nonprofit educational affiliate of the W. Parsons Todd Foundation. The museum is open for tours of the home and exhibits on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1pm to 4 pm. The last ticket for admission is sold at 3pm.   The Macculloch Hall Historical Museum received an operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.  Funding for the Shakespeare program has been made possible in part by funds from the Arts Council of the Morris Area through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. For information, call the Museum weekdays at (973) 538-2404, find us on Facebook or visit our website www.maccullochhall.org.  Macculloch Hall Historical Museum, 45 Macculloch Ave., Morristown, NJ 07960.

 

About the Next Stage Ensemble

The Next Stage Ensemble, now in its 19th year, was created in 1992 as part of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's Summer Professional Training Program, to foster the work of early-career actors and directors. One of several exciting outreach programs offered by the Theatre, each summer the Next Stage Ensemble brings the thrill of live performance to audiences throughout New Jersey, while enabling young performers to gain valuable experience in classical theatre and ensemble work.

Much as an Elizabethan traveling company would have done, the troupe tours with only minimal sets and without lighting equipment. In traditional fashion, actors typically perform in multiple roles. The performers rely upon the text and their craft, rather than on elaborate sets, costumes and special effects, to create theatrical "magic."

Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center Reopens

0
0
Location: Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center
1 Normal Ave, Montclair, NJ
When: June 12, 2011
Time: 12:00pm

The extensively renovated Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center is set to reopen its doors to the public on Sunday, June 12 at noon, a day that will be marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the unveiling of a life-sized statue of Yogi Berra.

The Museum & Learning Center, which first opened to the public in 1998 on the campus of Montclair State University, has been closed for nine months due to a $3.2 million expansion and refashioning of the exhibit gallery and theater. The “new” YBMLC, which will accommodate more students for educational programs, will also reflect the importance of character and values—integrity, teamwork, perseverance—as embodied by Berra, one of America’s most beloved athletes and a cultural icon.

Designed by Ikon 5 Architects of Princeton, the building’s new features include a gleaming glass-box atrium and lobby which was cited for excellence by New York Construction, a major trade organization.

Other attractive additions include an interactive exhibit gallery, designed by Gallagher & Associates of Silver Spring, Maryland, featuring never-before-seen photos and artifacts from Berra’s legendary career. Among them are a dazzling display of championship rings—Berra's 10 rings as a player are most in baseball history—and the jersey he wore while catching Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series from the collection of Dr. Richard Angrist.

The hub of all the Museum’s public and educational programs will take place in the new Jay and Patty Baker Theater, where films will be shown during public hours. The Museum will be open from Wednesdays to Sundays, from noon to 5 p.m., except on days of New Jersey Jackals minor-league games, when it will remain open until 7 p.m.

The Museum, a not-for-profit sports education organization, was redesigned to accommodate more students and groups and give visitors greater insight into Berra's extraordinary life and care

Gooch’s Garlic Run, an annual motorcycle ride by several thousand current and retired police officers that shuts down the eastbound side of Route 80, is set to ride again.   A permit dispute cancelled last year’s event and is prompting a significant route change this year -- though the map will remain unchanged in Morris County.  The bikers will depart the Rockaway Townsquare mall starting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15, entering westbound Route 80 at the Mount Hope Road.   Instead of culminating with a late-night dinner in the Little Italy neighborhood in Manhattan, the 24th annual motorcycle ride will end in the Ironbound section of the Newark.
