THE PLAYERS ARE ON, AT RUMSON-FAIR HAVEN

Press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School

For one weekend in November, the Tower Players at Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School return to the stage with their fall dramatic production: The Faerie King’s Daughter, a spellbinding story of what happens when four groups of residents – Fairies, Trolls, Humans, and Elves – interact in an unexpected way that changes life in the Fairy Glen forever. The Players have announced evening performances for 7:30 pm on Friday, November 20 and Saturday, November 21, with a matinee performance on Sunday, November 22 at 1 pm.

A cast of 28 students (under the direction of Suzanne Sweeney and assistant director Kasi Ann Sweeney) is featured in this compelling performance which includes dancing, singing, and elaborate costumes. Over 50 students are participating behind the scenes in costumes and tech crew. Choreography is by Jen Costa, and costume designs are by Carole Malik. Stefania Flecca is Play Production Coordinator.

In the script by Elliott Baker, Katie (Meghan McGuigan) is the Faerie King’s Daughter, a fairy who has no interest in fulfilling her legacy and leading the Tooth Fairy troupe. In an act of rebellion, she flies to the “human” world where she meets Max (Matt Hughes) and his sister Em (Alissa Zack). Katie and Max are falling in love, but a “boon” – or wish – has been granted to the trolls, thanks  to their fulfillment of a hundred-year-long promise to the humans. Unfortunately, Troll Queen Anfisa (Jenny Greener) has a long-standing grudge against Findbharr, the Faerie King (Calvin Bruno).

When Anfisa reveals her wish, Katie finds herself facing a difficult decision — but she does not have to face it alone. Her two best friends Mabel (Leigh Forsyth) and Gorwin (Josh Beacher)  enlist the help of Max and Em in a mission to help courageous Katie retain her free spirit while saving the Fairy Glen.

Tickets can be purchased directly online at RumsonFairHaven.org (click on “The Faerie King’s Daughter”). Optionally, the online order form can be printed and mailed to RFH with payment.

Ticket prices for The Faerie King’s Daughter are $10 for adults and $7 for students (including children) and seniors. RFH students with SGA cards will be admitted free of charge. Tickets will also be available at the door, and the always-popular café will be open an hour before each performance and during intermission.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
