Plays-in-the-Park Announces 20th Annual Indoor Children’s Show

Tickets to Popular Event on Sale Sept. 10

 

SEPT. 6, 2012 -- JB's Harmonica, a new children's musical, will be presented for six performances in October. Tickets go on sale this Monday, Sept. 10.

The show will be presented by Plays-in-the-Park, 1 Pine Drive, Roosevelt Park, Edison, NJ. Show times and dates are noon and 3 p.m. Oct. 6, 7, 13, 14, 20.

The cost is $2 for children age 12 and under; $3 for adults.

“In the fall, we close the doors to the Plays-in-the-Park stage and produce an indoor show specifically for young theater goers,” said Freeholder Stephen J. “Pete” Dalina, liaison to the County’s Parks and Recreation Office. “This perennially popular program sells out every year, so be sure to get your tickets.”

Based on the beloved children's book by singer/songwriter John B. Sebastian, J.B.'s Harmonica tells the delightful story of a talented family of bears, and the trials young 12-year-old J.B. faces when his father gives him a new harmonica.

It features such classic folk-rock songs as "Do You Believe in Magic?" "What a Day for a Daydream," "Summer in the City," "Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?" "Nashville Cats" and many others. It’s great fun for all ages, whether human or bear!

“2012 has been a great year for Plays-in-the-Park,” said Freeholder Director Christopher D. Rafano. “Our full-stage, summer program marked its 50th anniversary, and now our ever-popular children’s show is celebrating 20 years of entertaining audiences. My Freeholder colleagues and I are very happy to be able to support and offer these great recreational opportunities to our residents.”  

Tickets are available during the weekdays at the Plays-in-the-Park production office or through the mail.  Visit: http://www.playsinthepark.com/index.php/season/current/childrens-show-tbd for the order form.
