Early Childhood & Arts Literacy Program

Children love to see storybook characters come to life on stage. But in recent years, the arts have been increasingly eliminated from school curricula and family life. State Theatre New Jersey created the Early Childhood Arts & Literacy Program to address this issue and introduce youngsters to the performing arts.
