Pushcart Players’ New Musical Features New Jersey
“Celebrating New Jersey!” was written in honor of New Jersey’s 350th anniversary, which takes place in 2014. Next year is also an anniversary for Pushcart, which will be marking its 40th anniversary season. Broadway World did a piece on both recently and interviewed Pushcart’s artistic director, who had this to say about the new musical:
“It is the perfect assembly program to provide arts enrichment, history enhancement and a joyful overview of NJ’s earliest beginnings,” says Pushcart Artistic Director, Ruth Fost (North Caldwell, NJ resident). “There is a full segment on Thomas Alva Edison, along with story theatre at its best — highlighting the arrival of the first settlers, the fight for freedom in the American Revolution, the struggle to end slavery in the Civil War and glimpses of the many people and events that helped make NJ the Great Garden State! “Celebrating New Jersey” is sure to delight young audiences with its captivating story, music and choreography; its innovative sets, costumes and props.”
In addition to “Celebrating New Jersey”, Pushcart’s actors will also be performing pieces from its repertoire, including “Peter and The Wolf”, “Red Riding Hood and Other Stories” and “Let Freedom Ring”. You can learn more about the troupe by visiting its Web site.
