Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm; Thursdays, April 29 and May 6 at 7pm. ms, joys and concerns of the average working American are the focus of this unique, extraordinary musical. That the everyday lives of “common” men and women should be so compelling and moving will surprise and inspire anyone who has ever punched a time clock. Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the millworker, the mason, the trucker, the fireman, the housewife, just to name a few. It’s a highly original look at the American landscape that’s simply impossible to forget.

A Look At One of Hudson County’s Best and Oldest Theater Company’s
by Sally Deering
Back in the 1970s, alumni from the Argos Eyes Drama Society at Saint Peter’s College met one night in a tiny Jersey City attic and talked about starting a theater where they could put on plays that challenged them artistically and attracted local audiences. By the end of the meeting, that group of aspiring playmakers became the Attic Ensemble.
Several theaters and more than a hundred plays later, the Attic Ensemble has settled into the Barrow Mansion on Wayne Street in Jersey City, a block from the Grove Street PATH in a hip neighborhood where the company continues to stretch and grow. Continue reading THE SECRETS IN THE ATTIC

Come play at Alan and Buddy Baker’s swinging bachelor pad, in Neil Simon’s first Broadway play. In this sweet comedy (written in 1961), big brother Alan douses his ladies’ man reputation by falling in love — but little brother Buddy lights the torch for himself!

Since 2005, a number of theater companies in Hudson County, New Jersey casually discussed forming a group of all the theaters in the area. In January 2007, six companies took the next step – they met and formally discussed the benefits of such a theater alliance, not only to the member theaters but also the arts community in Hudson County on a whole. The conclusion was unanimous and the Hudson County Theatre Alliance (HCTA) was formed.

Winner of four Outer Critics Circle Awards including Best Off-Broadway Musical in its original New York production, the show is a fund raiser put on by the Little Sisters of Hoboken to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). Full of laughs and songs and singing nuns, this zany musical is a sure-hit for audiences of all denominations!
“A hail of fun and frolic! Wacky and outrageous with a hysterical anything goes sense of fun!”
