Woodbridge Community Players Presents: An Evening with Russell Fischer

Russell Fischer

The Woodbridge Community Players (WCP) – our very own summer stock theatre group of local actors and actresses – are looking for talent!!!  Ensemble auditions for the cast of West Side Story are scheduled for Sat., May 6, 2017 at 9:00 AM at the Theatre at Woodbridge Middle School.  The WCP have begun rehearsal or the Summer production of “West Side Story.”  Stay tuned to the WB News or the WCP Facebook at: www.facebook.com/wcyp.inc or www.WoodbridgeCommunityPlayers.org for information on performance dates and tickets.  

WCP Needs Patrons:  The work of the WCP does not end with the final curtain call for “West Side Story” in July!!!  What many theatre-goers may not realize is how costly a stage production can be - just the rights to a play or Broadway musical show can run more than $5,000 - add to that, costs for lighting, sound, scenery, costumes and props, and you’ll understand why the WCP needs your help to produce shows the entire community can be proud of.  That’s why we’re asking Township residents to support the Woodbridge Community Players by signing on as a Patron.  To support the WCP and to learn how you can be a “Patron of the WCP” go to: www.WoodbridgeCommunityPlayers.org.
