Performance Notes

× Former Hackettstown resident Ada Lunardoni had an illustrious claim to fame that was little known to her neighbors - she was a member of the first US Women's Gymnastics Team that had its genesis in the backyards and Turners Gyms of Newark, then going on to cross the Atlantic Ocean with Jesse Owens and compete in the controversial 1936 Berlin Olympics. Award-winning Darrah Cloud will be on hand with readings from the first scenes of her play, as well as Centenary University Historian Ray Frey, to share his vast knowledge of NJ at the time of the 1936 Olympics, as well as pre WWII Germany. A presentation about the team and hits history will also be included in the evening followed by audience discussion. GENERAL ADMISSION. FREE EVENT. CLICK ON 'BUY TICKET' FOR RESERVATION.
