Coming up in December at Sussex County Community College Performing Arts Center!

North Star Theater Company invites you to take “A Closer Look” at shows you may not be aware of but are incredible. We all know Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton,” but are you aware of his 15-minute musical, “21 Chump Street” about a real life incident in a high school? Alexander McCully directs this energetic musical that will have you hopping in your seats and begging for an encore!

When you think about the words trifles, it really connotes something not very important. But when you watch the play, take a “Closer Look” at the trifles that may seem meaningless, but hold far greater value that what they appear to be. Director Phil Cocilovo teams up with the Sussex County Community College Theater Arts students to take a deep dive into “Trifles.”

We all know Andrew Lloyd Webber and his big hit musicals. What about some of his other songs we may not be familiar with? We all can sing “You Will Be Found” from the musical, “Dear Evan Hanson,” but what about the other music that Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote? Director Alexander McCully is taking a “Closer Look” and songs we may be unfamiliar with but will fall in love with.

And finally, we take “A Closer Look” at members of the Sussex County Community College chorus directed by Phillip Lid. Their mighty voices will finally be heard live, after singing to a screen for the past two years because of COVID-19.

Come be a part of our audience. The performers will be taking “A Closer Look” to finally see a live audience and the connectivity we all have that encompasses LIVE THEATER!
