Living as we do in the glow of Broadway, it’s easy to take great theater for granted. But it takes hard work and commitment. In our corner of New Jersey, a dedicated group has been bringing stories to life on stage for nearly 40 years. And now, as it is preparing to move into a wonderful new home, Trilogy Repertory is asking the community to be its guest.
Trilogy has agreed to be theater company in residence at the new Cultural Arts Center at Fellowship Senior Living in Basking Ridge beginning in 2019. The center, now in the final stages of construction, will include a state-of-the-art theater with seating for 200. Local audiences, including Fellowship residents, will be the prime beneficiaries.
“We’ve been keeping the momentum going with summertime Plays In The Park at Pleasant Valley Park in Basking Ridge for years, and we plan to continue,” said Henri Barre, Trilogy’s development director. “But now, adding this theater through the partnership with Fellowship will allow us to mount top-notch productions at other times of year as well. We’re excited to do more for quality theater in the Somerset Hills.”
Fundraising for the new center is in full swing. That effort is crucial for Trilogy and its audience, because Trilogy’s amount of access to the Cultural Arts Center will depend on how much it can contribute to the construction costs over the next three years.
Trilogy is grabbing the opportunity with both hands. And who better than a theater company to make a bold, dramatic stroke?
The Party With a Purpose, a gala evening of dining and entertainment, is set for Friday, October 19 at Primavera Regency on Valley Road in Stirling. The $200-a-plate dinner will help Trilogy take significant steps forward in its funding commitment to Fellowship Senior Living. A silent auction full of enticing prizes will help as well. Items to be offered include Broadway show tickets and experiences (including meet-and-greets with cast members), travel packages to Key West and other destinations, New York Yankees tickets with private stadium tours, and guitars autographed by music stars such as Katy Perry and Maroon 5.
