UPDATE: Due to the playoff schedule of Red Bank Regional’s undefeated football team, the school announced today a change to the published performance schedule for AMADEUS. New dates are Saturday November 21 at 7 pm, Sunday November 22 at 3 pm, and Monday November 23 at 7 pm.
As its Fall 2015 dramatic production, the Red Bank Regional High School Theatre Company will present an 18th century period piece that became a Tony winning 20th century hit on Broadway. Written by Peter Shaffer, Amadeus freely sketches a portrait of the young, brilliantly talented and boorishly behaving Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — as seen through the eyes and actions of his insanely jealous, revenge-obsessed fellow composer Antonio Salieri. The lead roles of Mozart and Salieri are played by Davis Bush of Millstone and Patrick Monaghan of Little Silver (left and right in photo), with the production marking the debut of RBR’s new drama director Reuben Jackson. The play goes up for three performances in the school’s auditorium, beginning Friday, November 20.
Red Bank Regional VPA students now appearing in THE SOUND OF MUSIC at the Count Basie include (l-r) Dana Brown, Jillian Lamanno, Bobby Davis, Eliana Swartz, Jaclyn Gisondi, and Victoria Aumack.
