Bringing Broadway-caliber musical theater to Middlesex County.

Our exciting plan for Summer 2020...


To our Plays-in-the-Park Family –

Like the rest of the world, Middlesex County continues to grapple with the Covid-19 virus and its’ effects on all facilities and programming. To that end, the County has decided it best for the safety of our audiences, actors and staff alike, to forego a summer season this year at Plays-in-the-Park. So, all three shows – Something Rotten!, Cinderella and A Chorus Line will all be moved to Summer 2021 and we look forward to seeing you all there! We will make sure to update the website with all of the audition information as soon as we make it available. 

Plays-in-the-Park is excited to announce our plans for the summer of 2020!!

 While we cannot gather here at Plays-in-the-Park under the stars, we can certainly gather virtually for some fun theatre projects this summer! On Saturdays, we will be hosting our DANCE-in-the-PARK Master Class Series and on Sundays we will be hosting our SUNDAY-in-the-PARK Playreading Series, honoring New Jersey playwrights.
