BC Players Presents Two-Day Only Production

Bergen County Players's Second Stage productions kicks off 2012 with "The Autograph Hound" Saturday and Sunday only

For this weekend only, the Bergen County Players' Second Stage will present James Prideaux's "The Autograph Hound" on Saturday 2pm and Sunday 7pm.

The Autograph Hound is a one-act, one-hour, three-person comedy that takes a revealing look at a wife who is an obsessive celebrity-chaser, a resentful husband who takes serious action against her compulsion and their young adult daughter who is caught between them.

Directed and produced by Westwood wife and husband team Jacqueline McElroy-Poquette and Ray Poquette, "The Autograph Hound" stars actors Helen Boyadjian (Saddle River), Kelly Camp-Force (Wayne), and Frank Osmers (Haworth). 

Boyadjian was last seen on the Oradell stage as Noleta Nethercott in Sordid Lives and Witch Winifred/Peddler/Step-mother Gilda in Rapunzarella White. Camp-Force last appeared on stage as Sophia Zubritsky in Fools while Osmers portrayed Shelley Levene in Glengarry Glen Ross and Big Daddy in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof previously.

McElroy-Poquette has had a long career with the Players, having directed a mixture of dramas (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), musicals (From Screen to Stage, Follies in Concert) and comedies (PygmalionThe Mikado).

The Autograph Hunter is Poquette's first production credit, having previously worked as a lighting designer for The PriceRapunzelFoolsWho's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?The Haunting of Hill House and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

First produced off-Broadway at the Albee-Barr-Wilder Playwrights Unit, "The Autograph Hound" was first published in 1969, but three decades earlier, the title was used for a Donald Duck cartoon which features Donald Duck as an autograph hunter in Hollywood.
