The Heights Players commemorated their 50th anniversary with dinner and dancing at Williamsburg’s Giando on the Water on Saturday.

Among those celebrating the community theater’s landmark year were (at left) actor John Bourne, the group’s oldest member, pictured with Fabio Taliercio, who will direct The Heights Players’ production of "Witness for the Prosecution" this month. From March 3 ­ 19, Bourne will reprise the role of Francis Nurse, from "The Crucible," which he played nearly 50 years ago.

"We were looking for ’The Crucible’ because that was the second play that the Heights Players ever did - in May of ’57 - and that put us on the map," recalled Bourne. "Within three months, the Heights Players was incorporated as a nonprofit educational group. We started our workshop programs and decided we were going to be a residential company in Brooklyn."

"Witness for the Prosecution" will be staged at the Heights Players Theater (26 Willow Place at State Street in Brooklyn Heights) Fridays through Sundays, from Feb. 4-19. Tickets are $13 for adults, $10 for students, seniors and children. For ticket information and reservations, call (718) 237-2752.
