  • Murder? Gurl, What a Drag!

    On Saturday, July 16, GAAMC will be visiting the Dover Little Theatre, on Elliott Street, in Dover, to see "Murder? Gurl, What a Drag!"  This little theater has a capacity of approximately 100, and seating is general admission, not reserved seats. That means you must order your tickets directly through the theater's website.  PRIOR to the show, those who wish to participate may also gather for dinner at a local eatery in Dover. Once arrangements have been made with that establishment, we will create a separate event on our site, so that you may RVSP for dinner.

    Murder? Gurl, What a Drag! is a night of 15 inch pump heels, wigs galore and of course…murder! When a somewhat normal night at the fabulous Madam Beatrice’s Café is interrupted by the death of one of their performers, the queens of the cafe develop a plan to search for the perpetrator involved. Be prepared for a night full of laughter, heavy contour, and mystery. This production is intended for mature audiences due to language and subject matter.

    Murder? Gurl, What a Drag!: A New Drag Murder Mystery directed by Larry Pelham. This hilarious original play is written by up-and-coming playwright, Maxwell C. Blackrier.

    The Cast:
    The cast includes a few Dover Little Theatre veterans including George Fear (Hector) from Mount Arlington, Ted Nykun Jr. (Hank) from Great Meadows, and Peter James (Various Roles/Stage Manager) from New York, NY. Many new performers join us on stage such as Mimi Shashimi (Heidi) from Franklin, Cookie Doe (Ivy) from Newton, Joe Jones (Kitten) from Newark, Ian Hagen (Toby) from Montville, and Alexandra Pascucci (Madam Beatrice) and Melissa Pascucci (Ashley) from East Hanover.

    “DLT always tries to assist artists with showcasing their craft. From a screening of a documentary about mental acceptance, to staged readings to help an author to visualize what is on paper. It is our mission to always be welcoming to all. In a constantly changing society, the need for support and acceptance could not be more of an urgency. We chose to premiere this production in July not only because it is close to pride month, but to send a message that PRIDE is a year round obligation. We hope all enjoy the show as much as we have in bringing this original script to life.”

  • Discovery Orchestra TV Show


    This is a special invitation from The Discovery Orchestra for free tickets to a live TV show taping for the Gay Activist Alliance in Morris County.

    The Discovery Orchestra is a music education organization breaking down barriers to help people of all experiences and backgrounds connect with classical music. Under the direction of Artistic Director George Marriner Maull, The Discovery Orchestra engages audiences through interactive concerts, community outreach events, public television shows, educational videos, podcasts and on the radio. Generations have grown up without experiencing just how meaningful classical music listening can be, and we are seeking to change that.

    It would be our pleasure to have GAAMC be a part of the audience for the live taping of The Discovery Orchestra's 6th public television program, which will be distributed by American Public Television on NJPBS and other stations across the country beginning in May 2023. The featured piece is an exhilarating, accessible orchestra work that will be even more exciting through our interactive format. This unique event is by invitation only, and there is no ticket charge for anyone to attend. Hosted and conducted by Maestro Maull, with 90 Discovery Orchestra musicians performing, it will be a wonderful opportunity to experience the Orchestra's educational music listening mission in action!
