One-Man Staging of Frank McCourt’s 'Teacher Man' at RVCC Theatre

The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg will present a one-man staging of Frank McCourt’s Teacher Man, Tuesday, March 4, at noon and 7 p.m. Performed by actor Michael McMonagle, the American Place Theatre presentation has been adapted and directed by Wynn Handman.

The production, part of the Theatre’s Tuesdays with Stories series, is in association with Young Audiences of New York.

The verbatim performance, taken from the third in the trilogy of Frank McCourt’s memoirs, spans from McCourt’s first days in the classroom to his ultimate retirement 30 years later. The actor presents the teacher’s journey with the dry wit and pathos characteristic of the beloved author.

“I thought I was teaching. I was learning,” says the modest man as he and his students take us on a journey laced with humor and fueled by a heart of unlimited circumference. Teachers and students will walk away with a better understanding of the relationship between teaching and learning. Audience members will gain an appreciation for the admirable profession that is so important in our society: that of the teacher.

Tickets cost $10 for the noon performance and $25 for the 7 p.m. show. The performances, recommended for individuals age 14 and older, include a discussion and light refreshments. Audience members may pre-order a $5 box lunch and dine at the Theatre before the noon show.

To purchase tickets or for additional information, contact the Box Office, 908-725-3420, or order online at www.rvccArts.org. Senior citizen, student and group discounts are also available for a variety of performances. Tuesdays with Stories will conclude with Nearly Lear on April 8.

RVCC Theatre is located on campus at 118 Lamington Road in Branchburg, NJ.
