BERGEN COUNTY PLAYERS PRESENT "THE MOUSE THAT ROARED"

Oradell, NJ, May 18, 2015 – Bergen County Players is thrilled to present the final production of its 2014-2015 season, "The Mouse That Roared", adapted for the stage by Christopher Sergel and directed by Lynne Lupfer. "The Mouse That Roared", the second and final Second Stage production of the season, will be performed only on Saturday, June 6th at 8 pm and Sunday, June 7th at 2 pm at the Little Firehouse Theatre, 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell. A limited number of tickets are available to be purchased online at www.bcplayers.org, by calling 201-261-4200 or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell during regular box office hours.

Googlebooks calls "The Mouse That Roared" “a quirky classic of world literature, a poignant tale of political morality, and a hilarious, ultimately triumphant portrait of international relations from the perspective of the little guy."

Originally based on a series of articles in the Saturday Evening Post and then turned into a fantastically funny film starring the immortal Peter Sellers, the story revolves around the efforts of a small European country declaring war on the United States in order to collect the inevitable post-war aid provided to the defeated. But along the way, something goes horribly wrong -—they win!

Director Lynne Lupfer of Tenafly is a seasoned BCP director, having previously helmed the BCP productions of Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty. She has also served on the crew of countless other productions and is currently the organization’s Membership Vice-President.
