Mission: The Garage Theatre Group believes in the power of theatre as a tool for growth, understanding, and communication. Our aim is to use the process of theatre, as well as the product, to educate, inform, and connect the communi ty in which we live.
The shows that comprise The Garage theatre Group season are challenging as well as entertaining, reflecting our belief that theatre is an open dialogue between the playwright, the performer, and the audience.
At the conclusion of each Main Stage performance, a discussion with the cast, director, and audience is held. By doing so, we hope to inspire and create a new generation of artists, theatregoers, and patrons.
Geographic areas served: Northern New Jersey
Programs: To provide low cost theater events to the general public and to teach young adults about the theatrical experience
Garage Theatre presents professional performances of top quality to the community in a comfortable space with lots of free parking. The plays presented are rarely performed in this area and are often U.S., regional or world premieres. They are generally challenging, thoughtful pieces that many other performing groups would shy away from.
In addition, there is the unique opportunity for audience members to have a conversation with cast and director after every performance.
Youth Conservatory productions are of professional quality and the children performing get a top-notch theatre education experience throughout the rehearsal process.
