Along the way, students act, sing, build confidence in themselves, make friends and have a wonderful time.

Auditions are being held on Saturday, June 4 at the Jardine Academy, 61 Myrtle Street, Cranford. Parents may schedule an appointment by emailing program director Mary Iannelli at mary@thetheaterproject.org.

GREASE will run August 19-21. Rehearsals begin June 28rd, and are held from 6:30 – 9:00 pm Tuesday through Thursday. Tuition is $350 with discounts for siblings.

Parents and kids are equally enthusiastic about their past experiences with THEATER PROJECT JR. “I just can't say enough wonderful things about the program. My girls love it, and we can't thank you enough. See you next summer!” says Pauline Papapietro, Cranford.

Mindi Kaunfer of Springfield says, “I have seen my son grow as an actor year after year with the Theater Project Junior group right in front of my eyes! Adam has had several school leads from the confidence the summer theater has provided him.”

Veteran participant Mark Lynch of Cranford has been with the program for six years: “TPJ was the best acting experience I had -- the difference from Theater Project Jr than any other place I performed is the people there are kind and just want to help you.”

The Theater Project, a professional theater company in Cranford and Maplewood, is celebrating 20 years of bringing productions of the best contemporary plays to New Jersey. Their mission is to enhance the cultural richness of the community by producing new or lesser-known plays on challenging themes, by introducing children to the joys of live theater, and by providing avenues for creative expression for New Jersey’s playwrights, actors and directors.
