" MASTER CLASS: Mut – German for courage. Only one of the many words to describe the cast of the Pennington Players as they performed a powerful performance of the Tony Award-winning play, Terrence McNally’s MASTER CLASS. Courageous. More descriptive words would be captivating, passionate, and downright talented. If there was an error made, on stage or behind the scenes, it did not show in their portrayal of the life and loves of the legendary opera diva Maria Callas. "

" BIG RIVER: The Pennington Players’ production of BIG RIVER is a small marvel. In presenting the Tony-winning musical from 1985, Pennington Players decided to go with a script from the 2003 revival, which incorporated American Sign Language into the show. That means the cast includes deaf actors and actors who can hear, some of whom sign and verbally speak their dialogue. Some speaking actors have their dialogue signed by others, while some parts are played by deaf actors who sign their lines, while other actors speak and sing those character parts. It might seem confusing, but it all comes off easy, as easy as Huck Finn dreams his life on the Mississippi River will be. "
