Each year New Jersey Theatre Alliance holds an event celebrating the professional theatre community in New Jersey and the region.

During each event, we present awards to supporting organizations, theatres, artists, administrators, and advocates who have made exceptional contributions to the art of theatre in New Jersey and the region.

Curtain Call

CURTAIN CALL is a highly anticipated tradition of giving recognition to the artists, theatres, and supporters who keep professional theatre alive and vibrant in our state. Curtain Call is attended by more than 200 people and helps promote the Alliance and our member theatres.
