MARCH 14-15-16, 2014
Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out of work musicians who room together in NYC -- to save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as a married. But the day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the "couple" they're going to be investigated! So Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon's fiancee, Kate. (Let's not even discuss that Leslie and Kate are having an affair.) When Jon's mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son's fiancee, and Leslie's ex girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie won't see her anymore, the comedy explodes like a cross between I Love Lucy and Some Like it Hot!

Our Gang returned to our "second home" at the Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven to perform four shows in October 2013, directed by Our Gang's Perry Award-winning Jessica O'Brien. Stunning songs, fascinating characters, and a compelling storyline, Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power. The story focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
Our Gang's Teen and Adult Divisions proudly presented the family-friendly musical adventure at the OceanFirst Theater for four shows in August.
Thanks to everyone for your support!
Our Gang's Junior Division proudly produced this classic story at the OceanFirst Theater for three shows in July. A talented cast of big kids and little kids -- about 100 performers altogether -- went on the journey from Kansas to Oz and back again.
Thanks to all our great audiences and supporters for helping our show to be a success!
Our Gang's Annual Summer Camp was held last year at The Horbelt School in mid-July. Thanks to all the children who participated!
