Playhouse 22, East Brunswick’s community theater, will be

Starting Friday, May 6 and continuing on Saturday, May 7, Theater Fest 2016 will be a unique opportunity for Playhouse 22 to allow performers and area playwrights to stage their works. Such works include “Groupie in Heaven” written by Joy Brautigam and directed by her husband, Douglas, both of East Brunswick; and “The Examination” written by Fred Dennehy of Cranbury, and directed by Elena Marie Chalcraft of South River. 

Local actor-turned-director Peter Reimann will be directing ‘Til Death Do Us Part, three one-acts about the trials and tribulations of love and relationships. Myra Cohen Klenicki of Monroe is directing “In Transit” a reader’s theater presentation based on works by Geoffrey Chaucer, Guy de Maupassant, O. Henry, Saki, and local playwright Joseph A. Dewan.

Mark Corallo of East Brunswick will be directing the “Harry Rea Show” featuring children and students of the Creative Communicators Theater Education Program at Playhouse 22. Creative Communicators is a program for children with special needs between ages 6 – 16.
