Skyline Theatre Company has announced their 2013-2014 productions, marking the start of their fifth full season at the George Frey Center for Arts and Recreation in the Fair Lawn Community Center. Skyline will present one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, a heart-warming holiday favorite with a twist, and a hilarious take on Shakespeare’s classics as part of their upcoming season.
Skyline’s season kicks off in the fall with the Broadway musical smash that made Barbra Streisand a star of stage and screen, FUNNY GIRL. Comedienne Fanny Brice had a career that spanned from Vaudeville to The Ziegfeld Follies to Hollywood as she became one of the most celebrated entertainers of her time. Audiences will follow her life as she rises from the Lower East Side to Broadway and finds the one man she loves, no matter what. Featuring the classic hit songs “People” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” Funny Girl played over 1,300 performances on Broadway and comes to Skyline for a limited run this October 11-13.
This winter, Skyline revives their perennial holiday favorite, bringing their very own Dickens back for another Bergen County, New Jersey, tour de force performance. Dustin Charles stars once again in the breath-taking one man adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol for special performances at the Maywood Public Library on December 13 at 7:30pm, and at the Anna Maria Ciccone Theatre at Bergen County Community College on Tuesday December 17 at 12:30pm and 7:30pm. Mr. Charles stars as Dickens and all of his unforgettable characters from his 1843 novella. This adaptation, by Greg Oliver Bodine, serves up the magical story of Ebenezer Scrooge's journey from miserliness to redemption with warmth and humor. At one hour in length, it is a holiday treat for the whole family.
FUNNY GIRL, October 11-13, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, December 13th and 17th, and THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED), May 2-4, 2014. Skyline will produce this season at the George Frey Center for Arts and Recreation in the Fair Lawn Community Center in Fair Lawn and on a special Christmas tour of Bergen County. Tickets are $28 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $18 for students. To purchase tickets online and for more information, visit www.skylinetheatrecompany.org.
