CLASS ACTS

The energetic evening will consist of twelve comedic and dramatic one-act plays done within two hours. The acts will be performed by the graduates of NJSDA's professional adult acting program. Tickets will be available to Bloomfield College students at a discounted rate of $4.00.

Since its founding in 2004, the New Jersey School of Dramatic Arts has offered its students, whose ages range from 5 to 85 years, acting, musical theater, improvisation, and television and film training.

In addition, NJSDA has its own performance companies including adult improvisational comedy troupes Nutty by Nature and On the Spot, and its teen improve troupe, Sparks of Insanity.

Bob Sapoff and Beth Baur, both professional actors, serve as co-founders as well as instructors.

Baur recently received an Honorable Mention in the Tony Award's Excellence in Theatre Education category. This annual honor recognizes a K-12 theatre educator in the U.S. who has demonstrated monumental impact on the lives of students and who embodies the highest standards of the profession. 

NJSDA's relationship with both Bloomfield Township and Bloomfield College is a happy one, in which all parties continue to grow together.

"We wanted to be in this area, near the parkway. Essex County is lively in the Arts. It's worked out great," said Sapoff. "The progression of the College is truly amazing."
