On October 23, 2017, at The Westin Governor Morris in Morristown, New Jersey Theatre Alliance celebrated New Jersey's Professional Theatre Community!
The event included a buffet dinner, silent auction, raffle, and entertainment. Proceeds from the event will help strengthen the Alliance’s critical role as a resource for the state’s theatre and arts community, and advance our programs that benefit people with disabilities and the theatre-going public.
Founded in 1981, the award-winning New Jersey Theatre Alliance has supported the growth and development of the current roster of 32 professional member theatres through innovative programs and services, and has been a major contributor to promoting the vibrant cultural scene in New Jersey. The Alliance, being the first statewide organization for professional, not-for-profit theatre companies in the United States, offers programs that make the arts accessible to all members of the community regardless of geographic or economic constraints, including the popular month-long annual Stages Festival as well as NJArtsTix – a discount ticket website. The Alliance also helps arts organizations make their programming accessible to persons with disabilities through the Cultural Access Network Project, a co-sponsored program with the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State.
Funding for New Jersey Theatre Alliance, a not-for-profit organization, is provided in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations including the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, The Prudential Foundation, The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey, The Shubert Foundation, The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, and Bank of America.
