Rent The Musical Hoboken High School 2013

Danielle Miller, Director, discusses RENT :

Hoboken High School’s Musical will be RENT School Edition . The characters are a group of young people who are trying to find their place in the world. Rent is about forming a community of people around you whom you trust and who can help you better understand yourself as an individual. These characters are looking for that “connection in an isolated age”. Based on “La Boheme,” the Opera by Giacomo Puccini, Larson took the idea of being a struggling artist and used this concept to write about his own struggles with life and love.

The theme of RENT , in my opinion, is not about sexual orientation or coping with AIDS but rather about accepting each person’s differences through love; and that it does not matter how long you are on Earth but what you do with your time while you are here that matters most. It was not just the appeal of this message, however, that attracted the kids, but how closely many of the characters and their struggles mirrored those of the students in our high school.

After Superstorm Sandy, which left all of Hoboken flooded, thousands of residents homeless, and many students displaced, I feel now more than ever it is important to embrace what is really important in life and that is family, friendships, and love. These are things that can never be taken away from you. It was amazing to watch a town come together and support each other. Seeing residents who had just lost their entire homes including every possession they ever owned receiving hugs, laughter, smiles, and warm meals from complete strangers, puts the meaning of life into perspective. Rent , with its themes of struggle and hope, is exactly the type of musical this town needs in a time when we are focusing on rebuilding our schools and community.

The Hoboken High School is located at 800 Clinton Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030

The Hoboken High School thanks you for your support!

The Hudson School in Hoboken Presents

Once On This Island December 14-16 2012

Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens Music By Stephen Flaherty

Here is the latest theatrical offering from the Hudson School….

Once On This Island December 14-16 2012:

On the night of a terrible storm, a story is told. The story takes place on an island where “the sea, sparkling in the sun, earns it the name, ‘Jewel of the Antilles.’” Passed down from generation to generation, the story concerns a peasant girl, Ti Moune, who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a wealthy boy from the other side of her island. When Daniel is returned to his people, the fantastical gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death.

Directed and designed by Adam Sentoni, the cast includes, from Hoboken, Ali Gilman as Asaka, and Robert Stark as Tonton Julian and Agwe. From West Orange, Lily Johnson plays Ti Moune, the peasant girl; and Jack Dorfman plays Papa Ge, the sly demon of death. From Montclair, Samantha Stein plays Mama Euralie, Savannah Mullarney plays Andrea, and RJ Konefal plays Armand. Coming from Bronx, NY, Bill Abreu plays Daniel; from Towaco, NJ, Aliana Kilmer plays the beautiful goddess of love, Erzulie; and from Woodbrige, Erica Rivera plays Little Ti Moune and the little peasant girl to which the Story is being told.

Based upon the novel, “My Love, My Love: The Peasant Girl” by Rosa Guy, and from the creators of Ragtime, The Glorious Ones, and Seussical: The Musical, the book and lyrics are by Lynn Ahrens, and the score is by Stephen Flaherty. The original 1991 Broadway production was directed and choreographed by Graciela Daniele, and starred La Chanze as Ti Moune.
Once On This Island will be presented at The Hudson School Performance Space, 601 Park Avenue, Hoboken, NJ. Performance schedule includes three performances Friday and Saturday, December 14 and 15 at 8:00 PM, and Sunday December 16 at 2:00 PM. Tickets are $15.00/$10.00 for students/seniors.

Mile Square Theatre presents Michael Thomas Walker’s tour-de-force solo work, Bubba Sunday November 18th at 2pm

Filed under: Hoboken,Theater — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 3:00 PM

Back by popular demand, Mile Square Theatre presents Michael Thomas Walker’s tour-de-force solo work, Bubba….

 

Mile Square Theatre, Hudson County’s leading professional theatre, presents Bubba, written and performed by Michael Thomas Walker. A one-man show with music written and performed by the dynamic Walker, Bubba is the hilarious and moving true story of a son`s quest to understand the complicated and tragic life of his father. The performance will take place during Hoboken’s annual Open Studio Tour at the Monroe Center’s Monroe Theatrespace on November 18 @ 2pm. Tickets are PAY WHAT YOU WILL, pay as little or as much as you want!

About Bubba

Inspired by true events, Bubba opens in the Deep South and through the use of projections, the audience is taken on a journey into the good-ole-days of Huntsville, Alabama. The play then episodically moves from one year to another as the audience learns about Walker’s father, Joe Walker. A survivor of polio at age 2, the play explores his incarceration for embezzling $181,000 from the probate judge less than 9 months after marrying Walker’s mother, his need to be well-liked, and his discovery that the polio has returned. Walker’s strained relationship with his father is revealed through multiple characters: everything from a one-eyed womanizing party animal to Aunt B, the cancer-ridden, chain-smoking, keeper of secrets. A combination of song, dance, and heart wrenching honesty, the play examines his life and mysterious death.

About Michael Thomas Walker

Michael Thomas Walker was born and raised in Huntsville, AL. Growing up, hespent much of his time at his family’s black angus cattle farm feeding the cows and bailing hay. After graduating from the University of Alabama, he moved to New York City where he performed in The Mystery of Edwin Drood at the Brooklyn Gallery Players under the revision of Rupert Holmes. From there hejoined the national tour of Seussical playing the starring role of Horton.

Stand up, improv, and then some, will keep you laughing and feeling good all night long.

The Final Edition is sizzling satire in the tradition of National Lampoon, Spinal Tap, Spy Magazine and South Park. With contributors from Comedy Central, The Onion, NPR, it’s a website, a radio show, a live event, a production house, and a mad dream. The whole insane thing is led by veteran satirist, original editor of National Lampoon, Editor-in-Chief of Spy and star of Spinal Tap (band manager Ian Faith), Tony Hendra. “Nihilistic and deeply silly.”—Vanity Fair, “Funny juggernauts.”—The Atlantic

Murderfist is going to get loud and get weird and our comedy may just help the pain of being alive. Winner of the 2010 ECNY Award for Best Sketch Comedy Group and named by the Village Voice as the “Best Sketch Comedy Group in New York.”

Reformed Whores is what you get when you combine an accordion, a ukulele, and two southern belles who’ve washed away their sins but forgot to rinse out their mouths. The musical comedy duo can’t quite clean up their act in this knee slapping, toe tapping, hoedown. “Very funny.”—Time Out Chicago

Team Submarine puts a new twist on the classic two-man act. Featured at the Just For Laughs comedy festival, part of the Mr. Show reunion event, and nominated for an ECNY award, these geniuses are two of comedy’s hottest rising stars.
