On Air Third Annual Community Play
For years, a motley crew has run a TV company on a shoestring, working hard to air quality entertainment, but always struggling for funds. Somehow, the crew lines up circus acts, animals, children, chat show guests, dancers, weather reports, news flashes and more, but the company’s new glamorous owner has ideas of her own and an eye for making a buck or two. “On Air” is a family show, created in the community. The show is produced and directed by a team of volunteers from local arts organizations, including Stone Soup Circus and Princeton Theatre Experiment, with support from the Arts Council of Princeton.
