Neil Simon’s first Broadway comedy smash, Come Blow Your Horn, marks the opening of Newtown Arts Company’s 2015 season and will run from April 9 through 15 at the historic Newtown Theatre.
Leaving home, young Buddy Baker (Joey Joyce of Langhorne), arrives unannounced at the luxurious Manhattan apartment of his older brother, Alan (Ronnie Palmieri of Willow Grove), a swinging girl-chasing bachelor who prefers his carefree life to working in the family business.
Pleased at his brother's show of independence, Alan introduces him to New York night life. Their father (DJ Holcombe of Yardley), is unhappy at Alan's mentoring and the loss of an important account. Adding to the comic confusion and hilarity are the young men’s’ mother (Jane Landes of Newtown) and Alan’s girlfriends Peggy (Cynthia Reynolds of Bordentown, N.J.) and Connie (Natalie Chernicoff of Newtown).
Director John Rasiej of Wycombe first directed Come Blow Your Horn for Newtown Arts Company in 2006. That production was the first live show to appear on the Newtown Theatre stage since the 1930s. Bringing it back for a reprise Rasiej says, “It was great to fill Newtown Theatre with so much laughter from a live stage production for one special gala night in 2006 to prove live theatre could flourish here. The play deserves a full run so more people can appreciate Neil Simon’s genius portrayal of family dynamics that trigger roll-on-the-floor laughs while resonating with the off-beat love and quirky family dynamics we all face in one way or another.”
Don't miss Neil Simon at his funniest!
Mrs. Baker (Jane Landes) fusses over Buddy (Joey Joyce) as an exasperated Alan (Ron Palmieri) looks on.
In addition to producing live theatre, Newtown Arts Company’s mission is to provide and support arts education. Each spring, we award four-year scholarships to deserving high school seniors who will be majoring in the performing or fine arts at a postsecondary education institution. Since 1983, we have awarded over $112,000 to talented area students.
Your application must be received no later than Tuesday, March 31 (Council Rock students should check with their Guidance Center for deadline). For more information, call us at 215-860-7058 or e-mail us at.
Newtown Arts Company invites you to audition for our upcoming 2015 productions. Whether you're a seasoned performer or a novice, you're sure to have fun, make new friends and get a chance to shine!
