In 1988, Neil Simon needed to cheer himself up. The solution was a farce in two acts, set in Palisades, that shows a dinner party gone topsy-turvy.
An enjoyable romp that has been staged countless times all over the country, this is one of Simon’s most celebrated comedies. But it carries a subtle undercurrent of sadness, which becomes more clear when we set it alongside the events of the playwright’s life.
At John Jay High School, live and in-person, you can immerse yourself in this funny, fast-paced, and exciting comedy!
Only on Saturday, June 12 at 7:00pm and Sunday, June 13 at 1:00pm.
Tickets can be bought at the door!

John Jay Theatre Workshop is very pleased to announce the Spring Production will be Changes: An Ethnodrama.
Amanda Urban will be directing, alongside our assistant director Bill Friedman, in what promises to be a fantastic production.
This production will feature an original script derived from interviews our 27 cast members have conducted over the last month with our JJHS School Community. Cast members will then use the interviews to write a script and determine who will play each role in the production. Additionally, the final product will feature a film score composed by junior, Hunter McKendry. Overseeing the production is Stage Manager, Ruby Bochicchio-Sipos and our Assistant Stage Manager, Grace Mango. (both seniors)
The production will be available for streaming starting June 10th. Since this is original material and not copyrighted, the video will be available on the website for a longer period of time. The film will be appropriate for children of all ages.
The production’s logo was created by one of the very talented cast members, Maclain Rocket. (freshman)
