The award-winning Performing Arts Program of Saint Joseph Regional High School, will perform the Northeast Regional Premier of Ordinary People on April 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Inserra Theater.
The best-selling book by Judith Guest, which was later made into the movie that won the Academy Award for Best Picture, will be performed by boys from St. Joe’s and girls from various high schools throughout Bergen County. Ordinary People is a 1980 American drama that concerns the disintegration of an upper-middle class family in Lake Forest, Illinois, following the death of one of their sons in a boating accident. The story deals with family conflict, survivor guilt, suicide and the healing power of therapy. Many have attributed the acceptance of family therapy by mainstream Americans to the popularity of this movie.
Tickets can be purchased at SJR.BookTix.com or one half hour before each performance. Tickets are $17, and all seats are reserved. Saturday evening performances will be proceeded by an optional dinner for an additional $20.
There will also be a Senior Citizen Preview Performance on Thursday April 14 at 3 p.m. Admission is $5 and may be purchased at the door.
