New Jersey Theatre Alliance was founded in 1981 by five professional theatres on the belief that the theatre community is stronger united, not divided, and that one theatre’s success is a success for all.
Today we serve forty-two professional theatres in New Jersey and the region, representing fifteen of the state’s twenty-one counties.
Member theatres of the Alliance support the economic development of our state and region, contribute to their communities with arts education opportunities, and offer performances that inspire, challenge, and entertain close to one million theatregoers annually.
The Alliance is proud to serve and support this vital theatre ecology.
