The Talent Time Players are affiliated with the Charles Seller Foundation, a Bloomfield institution created in 1950 to help a young man named Charles Seller, who lost his leg after being struck by a train. After the accident, Seller’s family and friends put on a variety show to raise money for his medical expenses. The basic idea stuck, but the shows got more elaborate. A new beneficiary is selected each year.
This year, the show’s proceeds will go to help David Cobel, 5, of Maplewood, who has survived a rare brain malignancy.
Gabe Martinez will star as Jesus in this year’s production. Azudi Onyejekwe is Judas; Megan Macphee is Mary and Ralph Turano is Pilate.
All performances start at 8 pm at the Middle School at 60 Huck Road. Tickets are $8 and $10.
