White sand. Boardwalk games. Footlong hot dogs. AND THEATRE!

A signature staple of the Garden State during the summer months is taking a trip to the Jersey Shore. Whether looking for things to do for family fun or a romantic date, there is always plenty to do and see. 

From Red Bank to Cape May, professional theatre is sizzling along the Jersey Shore! In between catching some rays and taking a round on the ferris wheel, be sure to stop by one of our theatres to see what is happening during this summer!

Two River Theater, Red Bank

If you are taking a drive to Red Bank this summer, consider visting our friends at Two River Theater. BroadwayWorld says of Songbird the new musical on the mainstage, "There's drama, humor, and plenty of whiskey in this authentic, yet complex story about human relationships."  And if you are lookjng to have a nice dinner before the show, stop by JBJ Soul Kitchen. Jersey boy, Jon Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen is an opportunity for families or individuals to exerience local fresh, organic food at an affordable cost.
