PATERSON, NJ - The Giggles Children’s Theater at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is looking for performers to volunteer to act, sing, dance, do magic, puppetry.

Audience members are the pediatric patients at St. Joe’s, and the goal is to prove that “laughter is the best medicine” by lightening their hearts and taking their minds off pain and fear for at least a little while.
“We host many different solo performers, as well as groups from high schools and colleges, performance schools and community theaters,” said Director Marie Caliendo.
Shows are scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:30 pm, and occasionally on Tuesdays at 6 pm. To participate or volunteer, contact Caliendo at 973-754-4623 or
