ELMER, N.J. — If South Jersey is looking for an amazing production full of 90s pop culture references and humor, then the production As You Were is just for you.

The show debuts at the Appel Farm Arts & Music Campus’ Clare Rostan Theater on Thursday, June 2 and Friday June 3. Both shows start at 6:30 p.m.

Nineties pop culture comes alive in the Drama Tree Players production of Sara Baucsh’s “As You Were” at the Appel Farm Arts & Music Campus’ Clare Rostan Theater. It’s What’s Good in South Jersey — with Isaiah Showell.

The Drama Tree Players are producing the production and Sara Bausch is directing the show. She also wrote the script.

“It’s set in 1995, and it’s fun for me because that’s when I was in high school,” Bausch said. “It’s fun looking back on memories. I took my own memories and asked other people, what they remember about 1995. It’s a coming-of-age story with a sci-fi element, which is fun, and it’s about friendships and how they change and you’re trying to figure out who you are.”

The production is made up of a wonderful cast who act out the teenage experience authentically. Emmaline Bausch and Christy Hagy are valley girls playing off the characters of the 90s classic film Clueless.

“I’m really sassy and mean in the play but it’s a fun character to play,” said Hagy.

Tim Synder and John Bruner are also a part of the production, Syder playing the lead, Xavier Jones, and John Bruner plays a character named Brain. Lucy Moore plays a character who is actually out of this world, with emphasis on the reference of the 90s show The X Files.
