WESTFIELD — Westfield Community Players (WCP), one of the oldest continuously operating community based theater organizations in New Jersey, is closing out their 75th anniversary season with the Ray Cooney farce, “Caught in the Net”.
The show opens 8PM Saturday May 8 and continues weekends May 15, 16, 21 and 22 with all tickets at $20. For the 3PM matinee on Sunday May 16, there is special pricing for students with a valid ID at $10.
In this sequel to “Run for Your Wife”, London cabbie John Smith is at wits end trying to keep two families apart. The chaos starts when his two children meet on the internet, and struck by their similarities, decide to meet and date. The situation spirals out of control as John has to keep the truth hidden while managing to earn a living and be a “dad” in two places.
Veteran WCP Director John Correll has assembled a talented and funny cast for the two families, starting with the other half of his own theatrical family, Linda Correll as Barbara Smith. Other WCP veterans include Tim McGovern as John Smith, Ken Webb as Stanley Gardner, Debbie Badal as Mary Smith and Stan Kaplan as John Smith’s Dad.
Other Smith family members are Filip Wojcik as Gavin Smith and Melissa DeCandia as Vicki Smith. Producer Sally Brown and Stage Manager Barbara Ruban keep the cast under control and on cue at all times
