Attic Ensemble Presents WORKING

River View Observer “Best Pick”

Local Theater Performance

April 23-May 9


 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.
Charge tickets Online. Cash and checks are accepted at the box office.  NJ Arts Cards are accepted for discounted ticket pricing.     The Barrow Mansion is handicapped accessible and barrier free. Large print program available upon request; please call one week in advance to arrange for a large print program.

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

Hudson County Theater Alliance- Theater For All

c/o Debaun Center for the Performing Arts, Steven Institute of Technology Castle Point on Hudson, Hoboken,   New Jersey 07030

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.
