South Camden Theatre Company Opens its 10th Anniversary Season with a Production of BROKEN GLASS by Arthur Miller

(1888 PressRelease) South Camden Theatre Company, a nonprofit professional theatre company located in Camden, New Jersey announces its 10th season titled “A Season of Faith” with a production of BROKEN GLASS written by Arthur Miller and directed by Craig Hutchings.

Philadelphia, PA-NJ – The cast includes Lee Kiszonas, Michael Hicks, Pat DeFusco, Maria Panvini, Tami Gordon Brody and Dan Hickey.

SCTC’s season of “Faith” is being produced as a thank you to the audience that has helped the theatre grow in Camden New Jersey for a decade. The tenth season highlights plays that explore faith in many different ways from traditional faith as well as faith in relationships and each other’s humanity. Set in Brooklyn in 1938, Arthur Miller’s Tony Award nominated BROKEN GLASS gives the audience a portrait of Jewish couple and their life in America at a time when storm clouds were gathering over Europe. Phillip Gellburg’s wife Sylvia suddenly loses her ability to walk and the only clue to her ailment seems to lie in news accounts from Germany.

Producing Artistic Director Joseph M. Paprzycki states, “Over our first nine years I realized that we, as a theatre that honors the playwright, had never produced an Arthur Miller play. I needed to correct that in season ten and I selected BROKEN GLASS as our kick off to this special anniversary season. This play, written later in Miller’s career, brings us back to the late 1930′s when a marriage was in trouble and the harbingers of the evil to come in Europe was just beyond the horizon. It is a beautifully written piece that has not been produced in this region for some time. I thought it was the perfect play to begin our season of ‘Faith’ for reasons you will see on stage.”

All performances will be held Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m. at the 96-seat Waterfront South Theatre located at 400 Jasper Street in Camden, New Jersey. Tickets are available for purchase for $20 online at http://www.southcamdentheatre.org, by calling 1-866-811-4111 or at the door.

Local Destination: Camden Riversharks

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We love attending live sporting events.  From tennis practices and pick up hockey games to professional teams and stadium events, seeing athletes play in person is always a treat, and we believe there's almost nothing more fun in sports than heading to a minor league baseball game.  You get to root, root, root for the home team for a much friendly price and often a more entertaining game.
 
As part of our Camden Waterfront Tour, Daily Vacationer headed out to Campbell's Field to see the Riversharks play, and we had a great time!  The team and the stadium have been around since 2001, and they couldn't have picked a better spot to play ball.  Right at the base of the historic Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the stadium overlooks the Delaware River and gives an unbelievable view of the Philadelphia skyline.
 
Campbell's Field is big enough for a great ball game, but it's more compact size puts bathrooms, elevators, and concessions all within a quick, easy distance, so you won't have to miss a big chunk of the game if hunger or duty calls.  And everyone is going to want to walk over to the third base concourse to get a look at the great view and to take a ride on the carousel.  That's right, Campbell's Field has its own custom-made carousel - and it's quite a ride!
 
Besides the carousel, little fans will have a great time at the United Way Fit and Fun Zone (hosted by team mascot: Finley) where they can play with bouncy inflatables and take a turn climbing the rock wall.  Campbell's Field is also a great place to host a birthday party.  For those a bit older, it's a wonderful spot for corporate events or private functions (like the wedding that was going on the day we went to the game).  20 luxury suites and over 400 club level seats allow plenty of space for any size party.  The Riversharks also make great fundraising partners.
 
Campbell's Field hosts a huge variety of fun events and theme nights all season long (most made possible by Wawa), making each experience unique.  From Heritage Nights and Military Appreciation Nights to Bark in the Park and Riversharks Overnights, there's always a special reason to come out to a game.  Make sure you bring the family often as kids 12 and under get in for FREE at any home game when they wear their own uniform, athletic jersey, or activity club t-shirt.  For only $15 (or FREE with a purchase of a large pizza from Pizza Hut), they can also join the Kids Club with perks all season long.  Weekly promotions (Munchkin Monday, Dollar Tuesday, Winning Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, Fireworks Friday, Kids Run the Bases Saturday, and Family Funday Sunday) as well as giveaways also add to the experience.  Make sure to get to at least one fireworks night (every Friday and Saturday home game).
 
Watching the game itself is a treat, with a great team and loyal fans cheering them on.  At a Riversharks game everyone is much closer to the players and the action, which we think makes the spectators a little more invested in the game.  And the home crowd was certainly proud of their team's victory the evening that Daily Vacationer was there, giving the Riversharks players a standing ovation as they headed back to the dug out.  This team is definitely a winner - not just in baseball, but in making the pastime unbelievably entertaining and fun for everyone.
