RED BANK – The students of Little Silver’s Mastro Montessori will stage Harlequin at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at the Two River Theater, 21 Bridge Ave.
The story takes place a little Italian village during the Renaissance before carnival, the last day of Lent. Harlequin, the son of a poor widow, is encouraged by his friends to participate in the celebration, but has no costume to wear. His friends all try to help by contributing a small scrap of cloth with which to make a costume. He falls asleep and has a whimsical dream.
Adults and children alike will enjoy the lively performance performed by current Mastro Montessori students and a few of its illustrious alumni. Youth Opera International will guide the cast through word, song, and dance.
Tickets are $50 for premium reserve seating. General seating prices are $25 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for children.
