Taking Center Stage

A seven-member cast took center stage this weekend for a comedic performance of Brighton Beach Memoirs. The play, originally written and produced by Neil Simon, is a coming-of-age comedy about Eugene Morris Jerome, a Polish-American teenager who experiences the issues of growing up and a search for identity while living in a crowded home in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn.  
Play director Mary Hygom explained that the student cast and crew prepared for this performance beginning in February. The thespians gave three performances in the high school auditorium on April 26 through April 27, as well as an afternoon senior citizen performance.
