Showtune Time!


I love a good showtune. I have since I was a little girl. I watched musicals all the time and belted out songs wherever I was. I eventually grew up and realized I don’t really have what it takes for the stage, but I still enjoy seeing those who do.

This weekend, Baristaville kids give it all they’ve got in two great musical productions. Show them some love and enjoy one of these shows with your family:

  1. Gas Lamp Players’ is a community theater group in residence in Glen Ridge. Our production of Annie is a community theater show with lots of amazing adults playing the adult parts. Just wanted to clarify that it is not a student production (although there are lots of talented students in it!). Hope to see you there!
