17-Year-Old Professional Theater Company’s Production Later This Month to Be Its Last at Current Cranford Home

The Theater Project’s 17-year run of provocative theatrical offerings emanating out of Union County College’s Cranford campus theater is coming to an end. The need for a new long-term home for The Theater Project was necessitated by Union County College’s plans to utilize its Roy Smith Theater differently going forward.

As a result, the professional theater company is in the process of diligently searching for a performance venue and long-term home in order to continue its mission of providing its Central New Jersey community with a broad range of affordable theatrical and educational programming.

The Theater Project’s priority is to stay close to its loyal audience and remain in the Cranford or Union County area. It hopes to find a flexible performance space and willing partnering entity to collaborate for years to come. It is interested in hearing from building owners and existing organizations who believe they may have appropriate space and a desire to engage in such a dialogue.

“If a local business operator, building owner, school, or arts organization is interested in discussing future partnering opportunities with The Theater Project, we are eager to hear from them,” says Mark Spina, Artistic Director and founder. “Our 17-year roots are right here in Union County and we owe it to our loyal audiences to turn over every stone in search of a new home so that we may continue our mission to bring live, high quality and affordable theatre to our friends and neighbors.”
