CRANFORD—The Friends of the Cranford Public Library will welcome back the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Next Stage Ensemble. The ensemble will be perform a live, one-hour adaptation of “The Marriage of Figaro” on Thursday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. at the Trinity Episcopal Church in Cranford.
The church is located at 119 Forest Avenue. “The Marriage of Figaro” is a joyful romp about courtship, marriage and married life. Figaro and Suzanne’s efforts to wed demand all of their wit, creativity, and passion as they attempt to thwart a not-so-noble count’s attempts to seduce the would-be-bride and fend off a lawsuit that would force Figaro to marry the housekeeper. They weave a plot that not only allows them to get married, but helps the count and countess rediscover their own true love. Aided by the incorrigible young Cherubin, the drunk gardener Antonio, and the pompous Doctor Bartholo, Figaro’s journey to the altar is a hilarious and madcap one. Admission to the performance is free and all are welcome.
For more information, call the Cranford Public Library at 1-908-709-7272. For more information about the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, visit www.shakespearenj.org. The costs of the performance have been partially underwritten by the Trinity Episcopal Church.
