You have always counted on the arts to enrich your life and add to the vibrancy of your family and our communities; but now, more than ever, is the time that the arts need to count on you.
These are unprecedented times and non-profit arts organizations like State Theatre New Jersey have been particularly hard hit. Like you, we've never experienced circumstances like COVID-19. Our doors are closed, our seats are empty, and our stage is silent. And while we have navigated times of crisis, we have not experienced the unknown timing of what comes next. What we do know is that we remain steadfast in our commitment to you to provide a place of entertainment, education, laughter, inspiration, and relief.
While our name may imply that State Theatre is operated and funded by the State of New Jersey, this is not true. We are an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit cultural institution that relies on both ticket sales and donations from our patrons, and our budgets in the best of times are lean. We take seriously the idea that we are good stewards not only of contributed money, but also of the world-class talent you expect to see on our stage. We are the stewards of the community—offering over 35,000 students and 200,000 individuals each year the opportunity to experience and access live performances. But today, we are being greatly challenged and we turn to our friends, our audiences, and our longtime supporters to stand with us as WE ALL adapt to the current reality.
What are we doing?
How can you help?
We ask you to help ensure that when the threat of COVID-19 finally has passed, and it will pass, we are able to re-open our doors and welcome you, your family, and our entire community back to the life changing experiences you have come to expect at State Theatre New Jersey.
We wish you good health and thank you for your support,
