Maurer Productions OnStage will stage the backstage comedy Scenery, weekends February 4-13 at Kelsey Theatre, on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College (MCCC), 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Ed Dixon’s comedy about two famous New York veteran actors explores the definitions of art, marriage and partnership. Marion and Richard Crain, who have been married for 20 years and are facing the dramatic decline of their careers, prepare for opening night at the Belasco Theater. The play offers a glimpse behind the curtain as the pair spar and banter before, during and after the show, revealing a behind-the-scenes backstage drama all of its own.

Tickets are $18-$20. Shows are February 4, 5, 11, and 12 at 8 p.m.; and February 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. Performances are live and streamed online. Visit KelseyTheatre.org or call (609) 570-3333 for tickets.
