UFT Players act out a scene from “Rip Off,” an original musical love story.

The UFT Players, the union’s drama committee, had two packed houses on Dec. 6 and 7 for their performances of “Rip Off,” an original musical love story set in New York City and Naples, Italy. Cathy Parsons, a UFT retiree who taught kindergarten for 25 years, was one of the actors. “I had a wonderful experience working with all these multi-talented people, all ex-teachers and educators,” she said. “This gives seniors a chance to use our talents and minds.” “Rip Off,” presented by a cast of 25 UFT retirees, was conceived by Barbara Haspel and co-written by Haspel, Tasha Paley, Milton Polsky and Warren Wyss.
