RIVER EDGE, N.J. -- Residents can take in a free production of the comedic play "Twelfth Night" on Friday, July 15, on the back lawn of the River Edge Public Library.
The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey brings members of its Next Stage Ensemble, a touring company comprised of early career actors. A love triangle, mistaken identity and royalty combine for a summer evening of laughs and drama.
Theatergoers should bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket. The show will begin at 7 p.m. The library is located at 685 Elm Ave., in River Edge. If there's rain, the show will be held inside the library.
The company will also be performing in Demarest on July 21.
The production is co-sponsored by the River Edge Cultural Center and Friends of the River Edge Public Library.
The RECC was started 21 years ago by a small group of residents who came together for the 1994 Centennial honoring the incorporation of the borough. The town offered the newly formed RECC a home at the former Borough Health Building, for historical photographs and documents that had been found in the attic of River Edge Borough Hall.
The RECC is nonprofit and was founded with a dual role of supplying a place for local artists of all ages to display their work and exploring the Borough of River Edge's past. It hosts family events and exhibits year round. For more info, visit its website or Facebook page.
