Engage. Connect. Celebrate.

We like to say that we’re more than a venue—we’re a community. That’s why we’re one of the few performing arts centers in the country with an entire department dedicated to reaching out, building connections and just plain having fun with our neighbors in their own backyards.

You can find us at your schools, libraries, churches and street fairs, spreading the conversation about movement, music and more. Come say hello!

Free Events

Every year we present over 200 free events all over New Jersey to share our love of the arts with you.
