As Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) actors readied for their production of Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite in 1977, more of the same is happening at the high school now.

The Tower Players are gearing up for their production of Miracle on 34th Street on Dec. 12, 13 and 14.

There’s always been a fall and spring production at the high school.

In the interest of full disclosure, yes, this editor is pictured here rehearsing for Plaza Suite. Regrettably, one of the actors is now deceased — Billy Weithas. RIP, Billy. Lisa Golder and Danny Olshansky are still with us; and both were at the RFH Class of ’78 reunion. Danny even apologized for dropping five pages worth of lines on me, saying he was never an actor and had no idea why he was cast.

I told him then, and will again, it was like a terror train, but you are soooo forgiven! This editor just had to roll a serving cart around the stage for about 15 minutes and just ramble. Good thing I never run out of anything to say! Poor guy.

OK, now the not-so-secret secret is out. Tell us your tale of being in an RFH production.
