Mission: To make quality regional theatre accessible to residents of and visitors to Beach Haven, Long Beach Island, and surrounding communities in an environment that emphasizes the education, training and growth of young and emerging artists who seek to cultivate the craft of live theatre.

Proudest Moment: The day following Superstorm Sandy Surflight Theatre was one of the first businesses to "turn the lights back on" in a show of solidarity and encouragement to our friends on LBI. We served free coffee and treats to the workers for weeks, as there were no shops open nor clean water to sustain their labors.

Unique Facts:

Surflight Theatre is the third oldest professional theatre in New Jersey.
The theatre is preparing to celebrate its 65th Anniversary season.
We have overcome Sandy, a fire, near financial ruin and an earthquake, and are still here!
