Throughout this impassioned and fast-paced program, the audience is treated to a representative sampling of Frank Sinatra’s many hit recordings.

“A Life in Her Day” Created and Performed by Hilary Chaplain and Directed by Avner Eisenberg
Saturday, December 21, 7:45 pm
Unconventional and outrageously funny, A Life In Her Day is a solo comedy about the tragedy of growing up and the promise of happily ever after. A wonderful mix of physical comedy, object theatre, puppetry, and serious theatre, the show is an hourlong one woman and a few props show where our heroine makes do with a “pretend” family of common household goods. An original amalgam of Lucille Ball and Charlie Chaplin, Hilary Chaplain, daughter of NewBridge resident Sylvia Chaplain, is a masterful physical comedienne who exposes her most intimate moments after discovering a diamond “engagement” ring in her cereal box and pursing the life that ensues.
Events are offered for individuals considering a move to a NewBridge community; however, pre-registration is required. Call Marketing Office at 781-234-9020 for more details.
