Opening Nights

Opening Nights are cause for celebration at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey! Patrons who attend the Opening Night of each Main Stage performance at our Theatre can enjoy a champagne toast at intermission, a post-show reception featuring wine and a beautiful buffet on our outdoor patio (or in our spacious lobby in the winter months), and the company of our guests and artists! For more information about Opening Night ticket rates please contact our box office at (973) 408-5600.
