Dear Subscriber, Theatre Lover, Supporter of the Arts…..

I know you've been waiting for it and here it is! Our 2018 - 19 season is going to be, in a word, spectacular. It is the most audacious and challenging series we have ever presented and we are thrilled to share it with you!

We kick off with our Curtain Up event, legendary comedian Paula Poundstone for one night only on September 15th. Later in the year we bring in Tony Award winner John Llyod Young, the original Frankie Valli in the Broadway hit Jersey Boys as well as the Clint Eastwood film adaptation for an evening of classic hits from the 50's and 60's!

Theatre lovers will thrill to a new adaptation of DRACULA. This multimedia spectacular will thrill and chill you. We also have the Susan Glaspell award winning and National New Play Network rolling world premiere of APPLES IN WINTER. Of course the holidays wouldn't be complete without everyone's favorite little orphan, ANNIE and if that's not enough, Randall Duk Kim returns to the stage with the timely Henrik Ibsen's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.

Of course there are other great events during the season. The musical talents of Martha Redbone, the Harry James Orchestra, award winning bluegrass violinist Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper not to mention the NJ Ballet or the Darrah Carr Dance company production of Celidh, An Evening of Irish Dance and Music. There's too many to mention here!

Believe me, there is something for everyone this season so join us for what promises to be a thrilling ride.

See you at the theatre.
