"Dreams & Nightmares" to Premiere at Montclair High

Continuing its tradition of presenting exceptional theatre to the Montclair community, on February 8 Montclair High School will premiere "Dreams and Nightmares," a series of one-act comedies performed by students.

Produced by Patrick Dearborn and directed by Stephen Vallillo, the show features a cast of 28, some veterans of other School of Visual and Performing Arts productions, some newcomers. The students offer a fresh perspective on a series of comic one-act plays written by Christopher Durang and David Ivies.

"Comedy is a challenge for young performers," said Vallillo. "In the process [of performance], the actor has to learn how to play a character, play for and objective, and interact with other actors. On top of that, the actor must learn how to deliver a punch line a react to the audience's response."

Some of the one-act plays featured in "Dreams and Nightmares" include "Time Flies," "Variations on the Death of Trotsky," "Words, Words, Words," and "The Actor's Nightmare." Previously, the show has been performed off-Broadway and in regional, university and high school theaters.

The three-night run spans consecutive evenings starting on Thursday, February 8 and ending Saturday, February 10. All three shows begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Little Theatre of the George Inness Annex, 141 Park Street. Tickets are $7 general admission and can be purchased at the box office before the show. For more information, call the Ninth Grade Academy during school hours at (973) 509-4004.
