Program Overview

This program is for those children genuinely interested in performing on stage. Depending on their role, they will be working with either the Director, the choreographer, music director, or one of the stage managers. One week your child may be a villager, the next week a butterfly, and then possibly hold a featured role. The productions are designed to provide as many featured roles as possible; however, the program cannot guarantee the “lead” role to every child.  Other limited activities are included to keep children busy when they are not involved in the scene aspects of theater.

 In 2023, Summer Theater will celebrate 63 YEARS of distinguished programming, along with boasting two very prestigious awards: the National Recreation and Parks Association ‘Dorothy Mullen Arts & Humanity Award’ and the New Jersey Recreation and Parks Association ‘Excellence in Programming.’
