“The best actors in the world, either for tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical-historical-pastoral, scene individable, or poem unlimited.”
- Hamlet, Act II, sc.ii
During this milestone 50th anniversary season, we will celebrate many achievements, past and present, and honor many of the people and organizations who have helped us reach this landmark in our history; but no group of people deserves a warmer spotlight than our extraordinary family of artists, who over the years, have been the primary purveyors of the great works of literature that we bring to life each season. Each day of this year, from this first day of rehearsal for the first show of the season, to the last day of our final show, we will highlight one of our company artists and their specific achievements here at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. As they accumulate, you can go to the special calendar link and revisit any of the profiles in the large array of incredible artists who grace the “wooden O’s” of our amazing institution.
