Now in its 18th year, the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's Stages Festival offers free and discounted performances, workshops, play readings and behind-the-scenes events for all ages every March. Events are presented by professional Equity theatres; some take place at their theatres, and some take place in libraries, community centers, performing arts houses, senior centers and more.

Join us, and bring your family and your friends, to experience the quality, inspiration and richness that New Jersey's professional theatres have to offer.

You can also visit the New Jersey Theatre Alliance's website ( for information about all the shows and events that are taking place at the state's professional producing theatres all year round, or visit for discount tickets to New Jersey's best performing arts venues.

The Stages Festival is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
