Midsummer Breakout! Family Fun Event at Luna Stage

Location: 555 Valley Rd, West Orange, NJ 07052
When: July 14, 2012
Time: 7:30 pm


Press contact: Sahoua Gboizo, 973.395.5551, sahoua.luna@gmail.com

West Orange, NJ: Luna Stage will hold a benefit event on July 14, 2012 at 7:30 pm, featuring the ensemble from their bilingual holiday show Mi Casa, Tu Casa that will have the whole family feeling the spirit of summer. Patrons of all ages are invited to come and take part in this multicultural, bilingual (English and Spanish) celebration of language, song, and family.

All contributions will be accepted in support of Luna’s 2012-13 season which will include Vita and Virginia by Eileen Atkins, Carnaval by Nikkole Salter, A Moon for the Misbegotten by Eugene O’Neill, and back by popular demand, Mi Casa, Tu Casa created by Michael Aquino, Deivis Garcia and Dania Ramos. Mi Casa premiered last season at Luna Stage to many accolades, prompting its return this year for an encore run that will open on November 30.

The Mi Casa, Tu Casa ensemble includes The Casa Band (Michael Aquino, Chris Blanco, Deivis Garcia, Jane Keitel, Cindi Merklee), and a pair of host storytellers (Ernio Hernandez and Paula Moscoso). The event on July 14th will be hosted by the two main storytellers and will feature songs from the show, as well as an exciting new folktale and other fun new tunes performed by The Casa Band. Audience participation is encouraged, making for a one-of-a-kind interactive experience.

Under the guidance of Luna Stage Artistic Director Jane Mandel, Mi Casa, Tu Casa was co-created specifically for Luna Stage as a holiday production by longtime Luna collaborators Michael Aquino and Deivis Garcia—both local musicians—and playwright Dania Ramos. The result was what the West Orange Patch called a “joyous, often hilarious, and sometimes poignant fiesta of a music-drenched show”, and “a colorfully wrapped gift filled with many wondrous surprises” (Carol Selman).

Michael Aquino is an actor, musician and singer-songwriter. He received a degree in theater from Montclair State University and has worked as an actor in regional theaters such as George Street Playhouse, The American Globe and Playwrights Theater of New Jersey. At Luna Stage, he was in the cast of the professional premiere of Sheldon Harnick’s musical Dragons, as well as Ghosts. In 2005 and 2006, he also served as the Summer Camp Director for Luna. In 2008, Michael created Indie Music Circus, a showcase for independent musicians in residence at Luna Stage. Michael has written over 50 original songs on guitar. He also created and facilitated 14 Songs in 14 Days, an intensive online songwriting workshop. 2010 saw the release of his band Sirs’ debut album, The Black Friday Sessions. He’s currently in pre-production for his debut solo album. For updates about Michael, visit something-artsy.com.

Deivis Garcia is a singer/songwriter, and collaborator, who specializes in a unique brand of music he calls “Spanglish Guajirobilly.”  His sound, be it alternately in English or Spanish (or both), is an ambitious blend of the rural folkloric styles of Pan-Latin America – ranging from Mexico to Cuba to Puerto Rico to Colombia and Bolivia – along with his own original tunes as influenced by American Roots music, Southern Blues, Doo Wop music, Rockabilly and Outlaw Country music. Deivis has had cartoons published in Raygun Publishing’s Bikini Magazine and in the printed edition of Jersey Tomato Press, a short story published in Dirt Press: Volume One. His story “Word Is Bond” was shortlisted for the 2009 Raymond Carver Short Story Contest. He is also a muralist and painter, and co-founded the annual Boro 6 Indie Music fest in Montclair.

Dania Ramos’ writing has been featured in the Rose City Project: Literary Showcase at Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey, Luna Stage’s On the Road educational theater series, and the Playwrights Summer Institute at New Jersey City University. She’s a current participant in the NJ Emerging Women Playwrights Project at Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey. Dania is the creator of the Literary Lounge reading series, in residence at Luna Stage, which has featured over forty local and regional writers of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. She received a 2003 New Jersey State Council on the Arts Playwriting Fellowship and a 2011 Norman Mailer Center Young Adult Fiction Workshop Scholarship. Dania is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America and the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. She holds an MA in Creative Writing from Wilkes University and a BFA in Theatre Performance from Montclair State University. 

Luna Stage welcomes corporate sponsorship for the 2012 performances of Mi Casa, Tu Casa.

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day with Somerset Patriots

Location: 1 Patriots Park, Bridgewater, NJ 08807
When: July 15, 2012
Time: 5:00 pm–8:00 pm

The Northern New Jersey Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network will host an Awareness Night with the Somerset Patriots as they take on the Camden Riversharks to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer research.  The awareness event will take place on July 15, 2012 at TD Bank Ballpark at 5:05 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and are available for purchase online at www.pancan.org/newjersey.  A portion
of each ticket sold will benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

“We are thrilled to continue this relationship with the
Somerset Patriots for the third year in a row,” said Northern New Jersey Co-Affiliate Coordinator Nicole Trella, who lost her mother-in-law to the disease.  “So much needs to be done to improve the staggering statistics associated with pancreatic cancer.  Events like this are one step in creating hope that one day this disease will be a thing of the past.”

There will be an information table at the event that fans
will be able to visit to learn more about the disease and find out how they can join the fight against pancreatic cancer.  Fans and supporters attending the game are encouraged to wear purple, the symbol of hope and awareness for pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States and has the lowest relative survival rate among leading cancer killers. This devastating disease has claimed the lives of many public figures, including Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, actor Patrick Swayze, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Ralph Steinman, Carnegie Mellon University Professor Dr. Randy Pausch, actor Michael Landon, and opera tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

This year nearly 44,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and more than 37,000 will die from the disease.  The five year relative survival rate is just six percent and has remained largely unchanged in the last forty years because early detection tools and effective treatments have yet to be developed.  Despite these sobering statistics, approximately two percent of the
National Cancer Institute’s federal research funding is allocated to pancreatic cancer.

Shakespeare in the Garden

Location: 45 Macculloch Ave, Morristown, NJ 07960
When: August 5, 2012
Time: 4:00 pm–6:00 pm

  At 4pm on Sunday August 5th 2012 Macculloch Hall Historical Museum will present The Winter’s Tale performed by The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Next Stage Ensemble summer touring program.

The first of Shakespeare's great mystical and mythical romances, The Winter'...s Tale transports audiences through a fanciful and sometimes dark 16-year journey. From the seeds of unfounded jealousy, two kingdoms become entangled in a web of paranoia, insinuation, and mistrust. Can a lost princess unwittingly be the key to healing the two realms? From the dramatic accusations in the high court of Sicilia, to the raucous and jovial Bohemian sheep-sheering festival, to the revelatory final scene, The Winter's Tale celebrates the triumph of love, nobility, and all things good, and ends with a promise of rejuvenation, redemption and hope.

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. For additional information about this performance, please contact Macculloch Hall Historical Museum -more-

About the Next Stage Ensemble
The Next Stage Ensemble, now in its 20th 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."
