Next Stage Ensemble

One of the divisions of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's Summer Professional Training Program, the Next Stage Ensemble was created to foster the work of early-career actors. Participants take advanced classes in voice and movement, while working on hour-long productions of classic and contemporary plays. These productions bring theatre to a variety of locations throughout the region including libraries, retirement communities, summer camps, and schools. Acting as "ambassadors" of The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey during the summer months, the Next Stage Ensemble brings theatre to communities throughout New Jersey, with a special emphasis on audiences who cannot travel to the Theatre.

Demand for this program is tremendous, and available dates go quickly. Be sure to book your performance early.
