Theatre Programs

Play Theater:


Play Theater provides classes, workshops, and theatrical productions in Union County, New Jersey, through partnerships with the Scotch Plains Township Recreation Department and the Union County Performing Arts Center.


Play Theater gets to the core of what being in a play, and being at play, is all about. Playing is about engaging, amusing, imagining, tampering, cooperating, working as a team, pretending and, when done right, allowing one to exhaust themselves before reeling it in.  


Since 2013, under the direction of Amy Fiore, Play Theater programs have grown exponentially...and we're just getting started.  Please check out the classes, workshops, and productions.
