Summer Theatre - 2012

The Next Stage Ensemble of the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey came to Mountainside on June 29 to perform The Winter's Tale. Over 55 people attended the performance, which was moved indoors due to the extreme heat. The company will be back on August 10 to perform Beaumarchais' The Marriage of Figaro. It should be another great show.
