Westfield, NJ. (Feb. 28, 2022) Westfield Community Players (WCP) has announced its cast for WCP's May, 2022 production of The Explorers Club,

a comedy by Neil Benjamin. The Explorers Club is being directed by Steve Lemenille, veteran director of WCP; produced by Bill Seesselberg and Stage Managed by Taylor Lyons.

The cast includes Joe Zedeny as Percy Fretway, June Ravert as Phyllida, Timothy McGovern as Harry Percy, Russell Ortiz as Luigi, Jeffrey Milstein as Professor Sloane, Allen Roberts as Professor Walling, Edward Bontempo as Professor Cope, David Williams as Sir Bernard Humphries and Paul Arfanis as Beebe.

The Explorers Club takes place in London, 1879. The prestegious Explorers Club is in crisis. Their acting president wants to admit a woman and their bartender is terrible. True, this female candidate is brilliant, beautiful, and has discovered a legendary lost city, but the decision to let a woman could share the very foundation of the British Empire, and how do you make such a decision without a decent drink? Grab your goggles for some very mad science involving deadly cobras, irate Irishmen, and the occasional airship.

The Explorers Club opens May 7 at 8:00 pm, and runs May 14, 20, 21 at 8:00 pm; and May 15 @ 2:00 pm.

Tickets are $25.00. Available on-line via WCP's website at www.westfieldcommunityplayers.org or Box Office (908) 232-1221
