CAMDEN, N.J. — February 9, 2015 – South Camden Theatre Company, a nonprofit professional theatre company located in Camden, New Jersey continues its 10th season titled “A Season of Faith” with a production of FORTUNE COOKIES written by Joseph M. Paprzycki and directed by Christopher ‘Jumbo’ Schimpf. The cast includes Nicole DeRosa Lukaitis, Amiee Theresa, Megan Pisors, Christopher ‘Jumbo’ Schimpf and Dan Kim*.
FORTUNE COOKIES is set in a magical Chinese restaurant in Camden, New Jersey in 1997 as four friends find that sometimes the dreams you dream are not the dreams being dreamt for you. Tonight is the tenth year that these four friends have met for dinner to keep their friendship alive and tonight Mr. Wong has a special gift for them, ‘the thing that dreams are made of.” This is a dramatic comedy of dreams, fate and friendship.
Producing Artistic Director Joseph M. Paprzycki states, “ Fortune Cookies was originally produced in the basement of Sacred Heart Church in 2007 and has been the most requested play to bring back as a new production in our state of the art Waterfront South Theatre. It is wonderful to see these old friends back onstage again”.
