Children Events

FREE School Children's Performances
Children's performances offer students from kindergarten to 8th grade the opportunity to attend a live theatrical production. As economic downturns create a challenge for families to invest in the performing arts experience, our goal is to increase children's exposure to music, art and theater through stage productions held at various venues throughout New Jersey.

In 1998, the Foundation began taking the show "On The Road" to reach school children who are unable to attend performances at the Arts Center. Mercer, Cape May, Bergen, Passaic, Hudson and Atlantic county school children have had the opportunity to attend performances in their own backyard as part of the Foundation's continued outreach program.

If you would like additional information you may call us Monday through Friday 9:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. at (732) 442-9200.
