SCOTCH PLAINS — The Union County Academy for Performing Arts will perform its fall show, “Charley’s Aunt” on Nov. 17, 18, and 19 at 7 p.m. in the APA Black Box Theatre, located at 1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains.

The original “Charley’s Aunt,” a farce written by Brandon Thomas in 1893, broke historic records with its four-year run both in London and on Broadway. There have been numerous film versions of the play starting in 1930 and a musical version titled, “Where’s Charley?” which hit Broadway in 1948. The story is filled with silly disguises, mixed identities, improbable situations and tons of fun.

“This is a hysterical play with an amazing cast and crew,” said Joseph Mondi, a junior at APA who portrays the role of Sir Frances Chesney. “It’s been a lot of work, but I’m learning a lot and having a great time working with the cast.” said Brianna Crincoli, a junior who plays the role of Spettigue.
