Teaneck New Theatre (TNT) in association with The Hackensack Cultural Arts Center (HCAC) will hold a fundraising presentation of New Staged Readings of One-Act Plays by local playwrights.

New Staged Readings is the first production of TNTs 27th season, and takes the stage March 1, 2 and 3 at The Hackensack Cultural Arts Center, 39 Broadway, Hackensack.

Performances begin at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Heres what on the agenda for TNTs third annual staged readings of one-act plays by talented local playwrights:

"Hanging Out," written and directed by Michael Burdick of Linden, tells the tale of a relationship: how it developed, how it broke up and how it was rebuilt. The involved couple is played by Vikki Massulli of Gillette, and Michael Burdick. Westfield resident Jessica Foerst serves as assistant director.

"Property Rights," by Theodore D. Kemper of Forest Hills, is directed by Maywood resident Greg Liosi. The premise: A married couple is confronted by their next-door neighbor, who makes an extraordinary (and possibly menacing) request. The actors are New Milford resident Barbara Liebgott, Neil Kahn of Maywood and Andy Rodriguez of Paterson.

"The Waiting Room," written and directed by Little Falls resident Ryan Correll, is set in the waiting room of heaven.

As new residents fill out the official forms, they engage in amusing, poignant conversations about the dreams theyve realized and those that never came to pass. The cast includes Lou Pipon of Lyndhurst, Bridgewater resident Juliet Brines, Charlene Kennedy Correll of Hillsborough, Westfields Kristina Hernandez, New York resident Arielle Grinshpan, Ryan Correll and Michael Burdick.

Producing the event is Beatriz Esteban-Messina of Union City.

All tickets for this fundraiser are $12. For reservations and information, call TNT at 201-692-0200. Visit TNTs web site at for directions to the theatre and for credit card ticket purchases.
