North Haven — Students and adult community members are working side-by-side in North Haven School/Arts & Enrichment’s “Major Barbara,” presented one-weekend-only at Waterman’s Community Center, Main Street next to the ferry landing. Performances will be Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 1 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 11 at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $10, $7 for students.

Money, morals and munitions; orphans, whiskey and the Salvation Army all figure in George Bernard Shaw’s witty satire of a hundred years ago. Director Courtney Naliboff said they have had a fantastic time tackling Shaw's language and philosophies at a particularly appropriate time, an election year.

“We've been very lucky to work with G. Benjamin Swope, a lighting designer from New York. In addition to troubleshooting the Waterman's Community Center lights, G. Ben taught two lighting workshops and designed the show,” she said.

The North Haven production stars Kelsey Jones, Chris Koerber and Adam Murphy; and features Bill Trevaskis, Cora Comstock, Kennedy Cooper, Caleb Mao, Samantha Sparhawk, Brett Thompson, Adrianna Ames and Julia Allison.

Scenic design is by David Wilson, constructed by Bill Trevaskis; costume design is by Callie Davisson; and lighting design is by Swope.
