The company provides distinctive arts programming for children and families including Main Stage productions, classes and educational workshops at the Palace, along with touring productions and residencies statewide.  The Growing Stage begins its 36th Main Stage season with Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST with performances running October 6 through October 29.  Fundraising events such as Harvest Fest help The Growing Stage keep its professional programs affordably priced for schools and families throughout the region.

In conjunction with Harvest Fest, The Growing Stage is holding a raffle to benefit its artistic and educational programs for young people. Three exciting prizes will be awarded:  $2,500 ShopRite Gift Cards; $1,250 ShopRite Gift Cards and The Ultimate Apple Package – Apple iPad, Watch & TV (Value: $900). Raffle tickets are $10 each, and may be purchased weekdays at the historic Palace Theatre, 7 Ledgewood Avenue, Netcong, or by calling (973)347-4946. The drawing will be held at Harvest Fest on September 28th, but winners need not be present.
