NJ Stages Festival

“Stages is all about theatre access,” said John McEwen, Executive Director of the Alliance. “For 21 years we have enjoyed bringing theatre to all pockets of the state, offering it free or at a deep discount. We’re encouraged to hear that after experiencing a Stages event, the vast majority of attendees want to make theatre an ongoing part of their lives.”

Since 1997, New Jersey State Council on the Arts (“NJSCA”) has been partnering with the Alliance to make Stages possible. Nicholas Paleologos, Executive Director of NJSCA, remarked: “Everybody’s got a cell phone. They can watch whatever they want. Yet last year Broadway had the highest attendance ever. Why? Because in 2,500 years there’s never been a decent substitute for the soul-satisfying human experience of live theater. And nobody does it better than New Jersey. Which is why we are proud, enthusiastic supporters of the Stages Festival.”

Most events require registration. For a full listing of events, program details, and registration information visit stagesfestival.org:
