PRINCETON JCT., NJ—Pegasus Theatre Project, the professional resident theatre company of the West Windsor Arts Council, will fundraise for Alzheimer’s New Jersey during their production of Neil Simon’s autobiographical romantic comedy CHAPTER TWO, running September 15-24 at the West Windsor Arts Center.
“We were very saddened by the news that legendary playwright, screenwriter, and author Neil Simon has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. So we thought what better way to honor this giant of American Theatre than by fundraising for a local Alzheimer’s organization that provides support to those diagnosed with the disease, as well as their families and caretakers,” said Chapter Two director Jennifer Nasta Zefutie.
During the production run of CHAPTER TWO, Pegasus Theatre Project will accept donations by taking up a collection at the end of each performance on behalf of Alzheimer’s New Jersey. Alzheimer’s disease affects over 500,000 people in New Jersey. Committed to providing local support and services, Alzheimer’s New Jersey has been a resource and advocate for NJ families dealing with the disease and has worked to advance Alzheimer’s research since 1985.
CHAPTER TWO features Peter Bisgaier (Princeton Jct.), Heather Plank (Ambler, PA), Frank Falisi (Freehold), and Sarah Stryker (Princeton). The creative team includes: Direction by Jennifer Nasta Zefutie (Cranbury); Production Design by Judi Parrish (West Trenton); Stage Management by Lili Timmes (Princeton); Assistant Direction by Jonathan A. Martin (Hightstown); Costume Design by Chrissy Johnson (Hightstown); and Assistant Stage Management by Gavin Knox (Pemberton).
CHAPTER TWO was written by Neil Simon. It will be presented September 15-24, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm at the West Windsor Arts Center, 952 Alexander Rd., Princeton Junction, NJ.
