Dear Subscriber, Theatre Lover, Supporter of the Arts…..

It's our biggest season yet!  For 2017 - 18, we have a lineup that will fill the Sitnik and Kutz Theatres with an explosion of talent.  There's far too much to list, but we kick off the season with the grandest Carole King Tribute of them all, TAPESTRY on Sept. 16th.  

Our Theatre season starts with a brilliant new version of Moliere's THE LEARNED LADIES, set in the 1930's as the screwiest of screwball comedies.  Our holiday musical is Disney's delightful Broadway hit NEWSIES.  The great Randall Duk Kim will be starring in the hysterical Broadway hit, ART by Yazmina Reza and we will close the theatre season with the Susan Glaspell award winning world premiere of HITLER'S TASTERS, developed in our Women Playwrights Series about a group of food tasters for, you guessed it, the Fuhrer.

In between we have fringe productions celebrating PETE SEEGER, the award winning, critically acclaimed MY NAME IS GIDEON:  I'M PROBABLY GOING TO DIE, EVENTUALLY by Gideon Irving fresh from a triumphant and sold out New York run.  CSC veteran dancer and choreographer (and star of last season's Mary Poppins) Justin Boccitto returns to the stage in SONG AND DANCE MEN, with some surprise guests!  

We haven't even scratched the surface of our one night only special events, like disco legend Freda Payne with her ELLA FITZGERALD TRIBUTE, or Danny Bacher and his jazz show celebrating the "3 LOUIS", Louis Armstrong, Prima and Jordan, or the brilliance of the Irish group LUNASA as they perform the best Celtic music on the Sitnik stage.  I should also mention that comedian and Emmy award winning actor LOUIE ANDERSON will make an appearance in a special performance for the benefit of CSC artists' support and the Hackettstown Rotary.  

All this only gives you a little taste of what's in store, for there is so much in music, theatre and dance as we get set for our most explosive season ever.  There is something for everyone!  Become a Producer and get tickets for the regular CSC season, or create your own mini season series of 3, 4 or 7 events!  One thing I can promise you; it's going to be a great ride!

Now available to individual ticket buyers.... PICK YOUR OWN SEATS in the CSC online ticketing system!
