Center Players to present original family-friendly musical ‘Doodle – All American Sing Along’


Center Players, Freehold’s award-winning community theatre, will present an original family-friendly musical, “Doodle – All American Sing Along” at Center Playhouse, 35 South St, in downtown Freehold, NJ, from June 16 – 25th.

Directed by Leslie Hochman, "Doodle" is the story of the town of Dependence which is planning their annual 4th of July celebration. Doodle Dandy feels that the residents have forgotten the real meaning of the holiday and are only concerned with having a good time and a day off.  With the help of Elliot, the bald headed eagle, and a special friend from a foreign land, the town of Dependence is shown the true meaning of the holiday. “Doodle,” was written by Hochman along with Marie Dionisio Fiorello, and features a cast of 13 local adults and children and many popular patriotic songs.
“It has been a pleasure directing this talented cast of all ages that has been working hard to bring the show’s patriotic messages and spirit to life,” noted Hochman. “I’m sure both children and adults alike will enjoy the rousing music and story.”

Performances run Fri. June 16th at 8pm, Sat. June 17th at 2pm and 8pm, Fri. June 23rd at 8pm, Sat. June 24th at 8pm and Sun. June 25th at 2:00pm.
