EDISON, NJ - On with the show. The Edison Board of Education has offered a Summer Enrichment program for resident students entering grades 3 thru 8 for 20 plus years. Hosted at JP Stevens, Edison High School, and James Adams Middles School, the children enjoy a variety of classes covering topics as Theatre, Reading, Math and Arts & Crafts classes.

The Theatre program has been a wonderful experience for many. Here they can continue to hone their skills and put on a show for their parents and other campers at the completion of the program (4 weeks) Students from Edison have gone on to other extracurricular activities in theatre including “Plays in the Park” and other community theatre groups.

“The summer enrichment program is a budget friendly 1/2 day place to enable your children to learn a new skill or work on one they have a passion for, “Jennifer Wilner. “The Theater programs have given Alexis the opportunity to practice her skills as an actor and have a great time with it for 4 weeks.”
