RED BANK, NJ — Two River Theater, under the leadership of Artistic Director John Dias and Managing Director Michael Hurst, kicks off its season of Theater for Young Audience productions with Skeletons: A Day of the Dead Bedtime Story, produced by Teatro Sea, New York. The lead sponsor is Monmouth University.
Performed in Spanish and English simultaneously (audiences do not have to be Spanish-speaking to follow along), Skeletons is a comedy about a boy, Jimmy, who is dealing with the loss of his best friend—his Grandfather. His parents try everything to help Jimmy cope, but nothing works, until the eve of Day of the Dead, when his Grandfather comes back to life for just one night to orchestrate an adventure. Skeletons is recommended for audiences ages 7 and up.
Ticket prices are $15 for children age 12 and under and $20 for adults. Tickets are available from tworivertheater.org or 732.345.1400.
A Q-and-A with the cast will follow every performance. In the spirit of the play’s bedtime story theme, Two River is encouraging all attendees to wear pajamas to these performances, which take place on the following dates:
Thursday, October 12 at 10 am (student matinee) and 4pm
