Plays, Concerts and Shows
Plays, concerts and shows are what we have coming up this weekend. There are 2 plays – 1 for adults and 1 for children – plus 2 concerts and 2 trade shows for you. Don’t forget that Winter Wonderland is still going on too in Van Saun Park. If I were a youngster, I’d love those ice bumper cars.
I hope you signed up for maple sugaring at the Tenafly Nature Center 1 week ahead as I’d advised. While it’s still going on, it get’s sold out so plan 1 week ahead.. You;ll see that some of these events are pretty full already too. Let’s take a look now at what we have going on this weekend:
A Wonderful Musical Concert
Starting Friday night and continuing on through early March, a wonderful musical concert is happening at Bergenstages. And The World Goes Round is a musical review of John Kander and Frank Ebb. While you might not recognize their names, you’ll recogonize their lyrics and music for the following musical plays:
- Funny Girl
- Kiss of the Spider Woman
Performances start Friday night at 7:30 for this 2 hour concert. Get your tickets now for the performance time you want. Tickets are only $15 (Students $5). Concerts begin Thursday and go on the 2 following weekends.
Another Fun Play by Bergen County Players
Do you feel like going to the theater? Want to see a comedy? Then come on out to the Bergen County Players Firehouse Theater Saturday night at 7:30 pm for the opening performance of The Play That Goes Wrong. This is a very funny comedy about a troop of completely inept characters who try to put on a play. In addition to very funny dialogue, there’s a lot of hilarious slapstick comedy. This play will keep you laughing from the beginning to the end.
This comedy runs for the next several weekends and you get your tickets online. Since tickets are only $24 (Friday/Saturday nights) and $21 (Sunday matinee), this is a wonderfully affordable live theater experience. I’ve been to a lot of their productions and have never been disappointed.

This is selling out fast so act right away. No matter where you sit, this is an evening you’ll enjoy.
Paddington Gets Into A Jam
Paddingtonn Bear is a delightful character who comes to us from England. He’s been a fixture in children’s literature every since the first book, A Bear Called Paddington, was published in 1968.
Paddington Gets Into A Jam is a new play for children. Because Paddington is known for being a bit clumsy and prone to creating chaos, I’m sure you’ll see him create quite an adventure. Don’t wait a minute to get your seats online for the 1 pm on Sunday performance. This wonderful play which make Paddington come to life for any child you know.
Plays, concerts and shows fill this weekend with great options for you. Since Saturday is going to be cold, why not think of another fun place I’ve written about before, Campgaw Mountain, where you can go skiing and tubing. No matter what you choose, I hope you have a great weekend!
