Renovation Before & After

On October 6, 2021, the State Theatre reopened after a year of major renovations. These renovations were made possible by Middlesex County, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and hundreds of generous donors who supported the Next Stage Campaign.

The renovations included brand-new plush theater seats; updated lobbies with new carpet, paint, and lighting; a renovated studio space; accessible restrooms with touchless technology as well as family restrooms; a larger donor lounge; a new state-of-the-art HVAC system; a blade marquee sign; and a motorized stage rigging system.
