Scene Around: After the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Curtain Call

And that’s a masked wrap! That’s how those traditional moments went after the final curtain call of the Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) Tower Players’ production of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow on Sunday.

It was the troupe’s first indoor show since COVID-19. Donning transparent, and some opaque, masks, mics and a “go on with the show” attitude, the Tower Players triumphed with its fall production.

By all accounts, a great time back on the stage again was had by all. And after taking that final bow, the cast mingled with the audience and one another to pose, smile and bond some more about their show time together.

Take a look at the photo gallery above for a glimpse into that time after the curtain call. (CLICK on one photo to enlarge and scroll. Enjoy!)

Until the next final curtain call in spring …

Bravo, RFH Tower Players!

Focus: Good RFH PAS Coffee House Times

Pumped up and piping hot, like a good, strong cup of java, Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) musicians revived their live coffee house last night.

It was a time to sing, play and socialize in person once again after COVID-19 quashed the event last year.

Organized by RFH music teacher Zach Lorelli, with tech direction by Matt Leddin, the revival RFH Performing Arts Society (PAS) event was a success, by all accounts.

The program was full, artistic palettes were satiated and a surprise jam came at the end.

With Tobias Ramondo on drums and Luke LaGratta on guitar, Jackson Champeau sang.

RFH PAS is always looking to showcase new talent; and there will be an encore in the spring, so anyone interested in performing can contact Lorelli at RFH.

The musical they’re taking to the outdoor stage is Emma! A Pop Musical.
