Summertime Performing Arts in Full Swing at CBA

July 8, 2019

While much is quiet around the CBA campus in the summer, the one spot you’ll hear plenty of commotion is Henderson Theater.

The summer season at Henderson Theater centers around Pegasus Theatre NJ’s production of Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile. Directed by Mr. Marcos Orozco, CBA’s Pegasus Production Company director, Picasso at the Lapin Agile portrays a fictional meeting between the greatest scientific and artistic minds of the twentieth century. Unbeknownst to them, a 25-year-old Albert Einstein is about to publish his groundbreaking theory of relativity, and a 23-year-old Pablo Picasso is about to create his groundbreaking painting Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. At the Lapin Agile, a bohemian watering hole in 1904 Paris, Einstein and Picasso’s discussions of art, science, and philosophy are as comical as they are thought-provoking.

Picasso at the Lapin Agile will showcase the talents of CBA and Pegasus graduates from the past three decades, whose vast experience provides current students with the opportunity to learn about the multifaceted theatrical production process.

Performances will take place on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 14 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved by calling 732-907-PEGA (7342) or emailing pegasustheaternj@gmail.com.

The productions won’t stop there as the CBA Blue Notes, the school’s jazz ensemble, will be conducting their first ever jazz camp during the last week of July. Open to incoming freshmen and current students, camp participants will learn more about their musical craft from professionals. For more information on the camp, please contact music director Mr. Christian Lopez at clopez@cbalincroftnj.org.
