High School students to attempt to break Guiness Record at the Huisman Gazebo and Taylor Pavilion on July 27 & 28. Please come and watch and maybe even be an official witness!

The "27 O'Clock Players" will attempt to beat the Guinness Book of World Record for Longest Play. Made up entirely of high school students, the troupe will begin their performance of "The Bald Soprano" on Tuesday, July 27 at 8 a.m. at the Huisman Gazebo (at Silver Lake & 5th Ave). As night falls, the troupe will move their performance to Taylor Pavilion, starting at 9 p.m. and continuing throughout the night and next morning. We need volunteers to witness this event! Guinness requires two witnesses be present at all times during the production. This breaks down to 68 volunteers needed for a one-hour shift -- or longer!



If you would be willing to volunteer, please email Brenda@BelmarArts.org

About the 27 O'Clock Players

The 27 O'Clock Players is a theater troupe consisting entirely of Regis High School students (Regis High School is a Jesuit college prep school for Catholic young men. The school is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan). The players include Joseph Colonel, Giancarlo Milea, Jonathan O'Neill (Staten Island), Paul Marett, James Polke, Brendan Polke, Vincent Pellizzi (Staten Island), and Ryan Mowbray (Staten Island). The production is directed and produced by Jonathan O'Neill.



The Bald Soprano Synopsis

Somewhere in the suburbs of London, two couples meet for a dinner party: the haughty Smiths and their befuddled guests, the Martins. The couples' desperate attempts to carry on meaningful conversation are punctuated by visits from the Smith's maid, Mary, and the local Fire Chief. These attempts are comically futile and build up to an explosive climatic scene, with all four of the main characters frantically shouting meaningless non-sequiturs as they try once more to make their voices heard.

The Bald Soprano is the masterpiece of French absurdist playwright Eugene Ionesco and a cornerstone of modern theater. The play is a disparaging commentary on life in 1950s and a parody of, as the playwright puts it, everything. In the world of "The Bald Soprano," time, money, memory, and death are metaphysical variables of almost no consequence at all. The society of the characters' time forces them to suppress their emotions and strips them of all their human qualities. The script of the play reflects the monotonous existence of the play's characters: rather than ending, the script concludes with a note that directs the actors to trade characters in preparation to do the play all over again!
