Professional Fencing Coach and Master Slava Danilov, as well as his lieutenant, Samir Machmoud, combine to bring more than 60 years of international fencing experience to Morris Fencing Club. Their collective expertise includes a bronze medal in the 1996 World Cup and an Egyptian national championship, plus coaching accolades that include leading their students to multiple World Junior Championship medals. Despite this imposing body of work, the duo also specializes in teaching fencing to beginners through their club programs, such as group lessons, private instruction, and camps. Regardless of prior experience, whether an Olympic-level epee swordsman or a person whose closest activity to fencing is making shish kabobs, students can comfortably enroll at Morris Fencing Club to build character and stamina through participation in the fun and active sport.
Upon its opening in 1924, the Newton Theatre beamed with a handsome colonial exterior, delicate stonework, and a façade glittering with 180 electric lights. Despite all this, the owners felt it most important to emphasize its steel load-bearing columns, declaring the building "the safest type known to modern engineering science" and “kind of like a castle, but, you know, without all the dungeons.” That sensible, utilitarian attitude has served the venue well ever since. The Newton found success as a movie theater for decades, then briefly closed in 2010, only to reopen in 2011 as a music venue with a sold out performance by Todd Rundgren.
Recently opened after a complete renovation, CityPlex12 Newark fills its 12 screens with a schedule of first-run Hollywood hits. High-backed rocker chairs make up the stadium seating, while 4K digital projection allows audiences to see each and every molecule that form their favorite star’s face. The centerpiece of the complex is its Shaq*DX theater, equipped with a towering 47-foot screen and Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound.
Valid seats appear in red (Section A), blue (Section B), and yellow (Premium) on the venue’s seating chart. Customers can begin exchanging Groupons for tickets starting October 24 by calling (973) 539-8008 or visiting the Mayo Performing Arts Center.
Nestled in the Morris Museum, the Bickford Theatre's cast of canny actors transmits theatrics directly to each of the auditorium's 312 house seats. Their latest production, the Tony-nominated I Hate Hamlet, charts the comedic trials of protagonist Andrew Rally, a successful actor offered the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. The leading character is haunted by his eponymous hatred for the show, and he inadvertently summons the ghost of John Barrymore, history's greatest Hamlet. The play's multifaceted plot incorporates madcap antics to generate bellowing laughter—maintaining a replay value comparable to a YouTube video of a koala sneezing and falling into a vat of flour. The Bickford Theatre produces four plays every season and hosts jazz concerts, children's theater, and performing-arts classes.
The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey commemorates the 10th anniversary of its outdoor stage with a 90-minute production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Audience members are welcome to bring their own beach chairs or blankets, rent a seat cushion, or master the art of levitation while absorbing the bard's tale of two couples wandering into an enchanted forest before an impending royal wedding. Watch as the protagonists entwine themselves within a whimsical and romantic plot that involves a mercurial cast of fairies, donkey-headed humans, and mythological hockey equipment.
