Performing Arts Programs

Seven years ago, Director Beth Kasper had the vision to build a Youth Theater Group at the JCC for 2nd - 8th graders.  Today our theater program is flourishing; it's a full theatrical experience with stage, costumes, lights, sound and pit band!  Open to the community.  For questions, contact us at jcctheater@jccnj.org.
