The cast and crew of Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn’s production of “Back to the 80’s” poses after the show.

Members of Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn’s Adelphian Masquers Drama Society & Theater Arts Program, in association with the Adelphian Players Community Theater Organization and through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, took the stage for three sold-out performances of “Back to the ‘80s … The Totally Awesome Musical!”

On March 10-12, in the Academy’s John Lockwood Auditorium Theatre, Adelphi students and faculty members portrayed memorable characters surrounded by the nostalgia of the ‘80s.

The show is set in William Ocean High School and features an older Corey Palmer (voiced by the show’s producer and Adelphi’s Director of Operations Mr. Albert C. Corhan) reflecting on his high school experiences during the ‘80s.

He chronicles the romantic misadventures of young Corey, portrayed by Upper School student Joshua Korsunsky, and his rivalry with the coolest kid in school, Michael Feldman (Middle Schooler Eric Furman), as they each attempt to win the heart of Tiffany Houston (Upper School student Nicole Fabian).

Among the show’s highlights were performances by the entire cast of “Kids in America,” “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” “Love Shack” and “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”

Adelphi’s Lead Teacher and Art Instructor Ms. Nikki Fregara, who also served as one of the show’s directors, played the role of William Ocean High’s technology-obsessed school nerd Feargal McFerrin III.

Other cast members included Upper School students Luke Gemma and Ania John, who portrayed William Ocean faculty members Steven Cocker and Sheena Brannigan. Corey Jr.’s best friends Alice and Kirk were portrayed by Upper Schooler Sakara Carter and Middle Schooler Isaac Nasimov.

Adelphi’s Head of School Ms. Iphigenia Romanos was proud of the performance. The show was directed by Adelphi’s Theater Arts Coordinator Ms. Christine Colacrai, along with Musical Director Mr. Robert Bates and Stage Director Fregara. Mr. Corhan was the producer, and Adelphi alumnus Arthur Furman ’16 returned as assistant director.

They visited Judge Del Giudice’s chambers, and he spoke with them about the criminal court system. The students were also able to watch a criminal trial. They heard witness testimony and listened to the closing arguments of both the prosecution and defense.
