Playwrights Theatre stages productions of up-and-coming plays each year through its New Play Development program. The 2010–2011 season keeps the theatre's long-standing commitment to fresh ars theatrica with three works: Lost Boy Found in Whole Foods by Tammy Ryan, MoM A Rock Concert Musical by Richard Caliban, and Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie by Julie Jensen. Your season subscription to Playwrights Theatre entitles you to view all three performances, receive a 50% discount on two tickets for family or friends, gain admittance to opening-night parties, and attend post-show talkbacks about new-play development and the inside story on plays. You'll also receive a pass to the FORUM staged reading series, enough to attend a reading of each of the series' 13 new plays and discuss the material with artists in an intimate setting.
Ironing bridesmaids’ dresses, dealing with late limos, and fixing uncomfortable garters. These are but a few of the situations Donna DeFrancesco and her team of dedicated planners at Majestic Moments Event Planning find themselves in while making sure each client’s wedding day is perfectly executed. It’s with that dedication and attention to detail that the seasoned event planner and her team have earned ratings of five out of five stars from previous clients on both WeddingWire and Project Wedding. Each service, however big or small, helps ease the frustration of planning as the team steps in to organize, coordinate, and execute wedding days. They also work to accomplish the client’s ideal vision of matrimony, from executing shabby-chic sunset ceremonies to helping choose a color for the papier-mâché groomsman tuxes. Majestic Moments’ team also plans and executes other special occasions, from bar mitzvahs and engagement parties to corporate events.
At Tree-Tech, tree fertilization involves much more than a simple scoop of soil scattered around the base of a trunk. Instead, one of the company's technicians––each of whom is managed by a certified arborist––walks the base of the tree and injects an organic fertilizer 8 to 12 inches into the ground, feeding the roots directly with the time-released formula. This helps trees grow healthier and more resilient, which is exactly what Tree-Tech’s founders Rob Finnesey and James Bellis hoped to accomplish when they opened their business more than 27 years ago. Alongside fertilization, they beautify landscapes with plant-pruning and tree-removal services, as well as insect and disease control for yards prone to ticks, weevils, or bouts of pneumonia.
Tree-Tech also encompasses a secondary business, Lawn-Tech, whose employees specialize in lawn care and sprinkler-system installation. Together, Tree-Tech and Lawn-Tech tend to more than 10,000 residential and commercial clients and have manicured the lawns of PGA-grade golf courses. The founders and their more than 100 employees also share a deep interest in bettering their community, donating a portion of their profits to the Special Olympics New Jersey, as well as to historical restoration projects and local schools.
