The Latest STNJ Education News for You!








We are so proud of the wonderful artistry and personal growth that we witnessed in all of our Summer Shakespeare programs this year. The magical worlds of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Tempest leapt to life with our enthusiastic Jr & Sr Shakespeare Corps students (ages 10-18). Our collegiate level Acting Apprentices dove into work that traversed the worlds of ancient Greece, the American South, battlefields in Spain, and the Forest of Arden; and our Intern Company played an integral part in all the work that happened on our stages this summer. We wish all of our participants the best as they embark on new adventures this fall.

If you would like to know more about these and other exciting programs, visit our website. Information for Summer 2024 will be available soon.
