Performing Arts Students Present Oscar Wilde's 'Lady Windermere's Fan' at MCCC's Studio Theatre Dec. 4 to 6


West Windsor, N.J. – Mercer County Community College (MCCC) Theatre and Dance students present "Lady Windermere’s Fan,” Oscar Wilde’s comedic satire of London society in the late 1800s, this weekend at the Studio Theatre. Dates and showtimes for this classic of the British stage are Friday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 5 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 6 at 2 p.m. at MCCC's Studio Theatre, located next to Kelsey Theatre on MCCC's West Windsor campus,1200 Old Trenton Road.

According to Director LouJ Stalsworth, the production is a unique adaptation of the original, updating it to the 1920s and adding dance numbers and music to many scenes. “Following the success of last season’s presentation of 'Romeo and Juliet,' which we enhanced with ballet, we are reinterpreting 'Lady Windermere' to include jazz music of the era. This production is unlike any before it," Stalsworth said. Lighting and sound is by students from the Entertainment Technology program.

Stalsworth notes that Wilde's witty take on love, marriage and morality has resonated with the student actors, who find the play's wit and wisdom relevant in modern times.

The cast includes Adam Porcher of Hopewell as Mr. Dumby; Amy Annucci of Ewing as Lady Jedburgh/Dance Captain; Charles Acuna  of Plainsboro as Lord Windermere; Harley Herrel of East Windsor as Lord Darlington; Jarell Johnson of East Windsor as Mr. Hopper; Jayden Klatskin of East Windsor as Lord Augustus; Jessica Klatskin of East Windsor as Lady Agatha; Katherine Beauchamps of Ewing as Lady Windermere; Kelly Fratz of Yardville as Rosalie; Kyle Kington of Florence as Cecil Graham; Maya Hoffman of West Windsor as Lady Plymdale; and Melissa Kettner of Bordentown as the Dutchess of Berwick.
