About “Plays by People”
New Jersey Theatre Alliance presents The Arts Access Program at Matheny & Premiere Stages at Kean University’s staged reading of Band On The Run on Saturday March 23rd at 3PM. This event is part of the Alliance’s Stages Festival, the state’s largest annual theatre festival that provides free and discounted theatre events for all ages throughout the month of March. This event is free.
This annual event will feature a staged reading of an evening-length play written by Arts Access playwright Christopher Saglimbene and performed by professional actors from Premiere Stages at Kean University alongside Chris. Christopher will be an integral part of the staging process, offering direct feedback to the actors on how to best present his written work, work with the director to create sound cues and staging and will gain important critique and experience as a performer in the main role.
“The Alliance is grateful that The Arts Access Program at Matheny is participating in the 2019 Stages Festival,” said John McEwen, Executive Director of the Alliance. “For 22 years, Stages has provided theatrical experiences for thousands of residents across New Jersey. These efforts would not be made possible without the wonderful help of our partners such as Premiere Stages at Kean University.”
About the Stages Festival
The New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s Stages Festival offers dozens of performances, workshops, classes, and events at theatres, art centers, libraries, schools, senior centers, and other community venues throughout the state. The program was developed to encourage New Jersey’s residents to attend their local professional theatres by making the experience affordable, accessible, and fun.
The Festival began as a one-week program for young people and their families. As it grew in popularity, the NJ Theatre Alliance expanded it to a full month of performances, workshops and programs for theatre lovers in all the stages of their lives. The Stages Festival is New Jersey’s largest celebration of live theatre.
