West Orange Resident and Director Camille DiLorenzo is teaming up with Music Director Ilene Greenbaum in Livingston Community Player's 10th anniversary production of "The Music Man", by Meredith Wilson.
DiLorenzo has been affiliated with Livingston Community Players for 10 years as an Actor, Stage Director, and Production Stage Manager. She is very active in the theater community, serving as Artistic Director of Pleasant Valley Productions as well as working with other groups such as NJYT/NJPAC Summer Musical Programs.
DiLorenzo and Greenbaum have been working around the clock to overcome the enormous obstacles caused by Hurricane Sandy with the help of cast and crew. Despite incredible hurdles presented by power outages and gas shortages, the musical is on track to open Saturday, November 10 at 7:30PM.
"The Music Man" takes place in 1912, when fast-talking con man Harold Hill shows up selling dreams of a boys' band to residents in River City, Iowa. Only the town librarian sees through his deception, while the rest of the town falls prey to his scheme. Will Harold skip town with the money, or will his feelings for the librarian change his conniving ways?
The musical features several hit songs such as "Seventy-Six Trombones", "Gary, Indiana", and "Lida Rose".
Performances at Mt Pleasant Middle School (11 Broadlawn Dr., Livingston) are Saturday November 10 @ 7:30pm, Sunday, November 11 @ 2:00pm, Saturday November 17 @ 2:00pm and 7:30pm, and Sunday, November 18 @ 2:00pm.
