From The Parnassian Society:
Columbia High School’s drama club, The Parnassian Society, found its muse over the weekend with sold-out performances of Shakespeare in Love – and has added two additional performances for 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1 in the CHS Black Box Theatre. CHS is participating with Disney Theatrical Productions to pilot the production for a high school stage. The romantic comedy closely follows the 1998 Oscar-winning film, with romance, mistaken identifies, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics all part of the fun. Shown are scenes from the CHS production; photos by Joy Yagid. Tickets are $20. To purchase tickets or make reservations, call (973) 713-6866.
