CAMDEN, N.J. -- The South Camden Theatre Company, a nonprofit professional theatre organization located in Camden, New Jersey opens its eight season titled "Home in Waterfront South" featuring works written by Clifford Odets, August Wilson, Joseph M. Paprzycki and Eugene O'Neill. Our eighth season will focus on our common desire for somewhere to call home; be it in our neighborhoods, hearts or minds.
A three-week production of "Indoor Picnic" written by Joseph M. Paprzycki and directed by Ray Croce begins the 2012-2013 season opening Friday October 26, 2012 at 8 p.m. "Indoor Picnic" portrays the change in Camden, New Jersey from 1960 to 1990 as viewed through the eyes of four members of a fading Polish American club. It tackles the difficult problems of racism, urban decay and white flight throughout neighborhoods in this era.
Founder and Producing Artistic Director Joseph M. Paprzycki states, "Season eight opens with my play "Indoor Picnic", written with the life experience of growing up in Camden New Jersey during the time when things changed so drastically in our country and cities. It is a play of broken hearts all broken by Camden itself."
Performances will be held Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. at the 96-seat Waterfront South Theatre located at 400 Jasper Street in Camden, New Jersey. Tickets and season passes are available for purchase for $20 online at http://www.southcamdentheatre.org, by calling 1-866-811-4111 or at the door.
Indoor Picnic stars Dan Hickey, Edward Monterosso, Eric J. Pedersen, Jumbo Schimpf and 2002 Barrymore Nominee for Outstanding Best Actress, Zuhairah. A profile of South Camden Theatre Company and Waterfront South Theatre by Christopher Benincasa will be featured on an upcoming episode of the Emmy Award-winning State of the Arts premiering in October 2012 and airing on NJTV and WHYY.
