March is HERE! Spring is right around the corner...

Hello Friends, Theaters, and Members:


How is it March already?  Wasn’t it just the beginning of the year?  What’s even stranger is that we have only four months left until the end of the Perry Reviewing Season.  Our next ceremony will be right around the corner!

As we prepare for September, we need your help!  Did you get your reviews in?  Did you do your minimum requirement of reviewing two shows?  Also, don’t forget to nominate your stage manager, theater, and those other heroes on and off the stage.  It is never too early to submit it!  Please do it as soon as possible so it is still fresh in your mind.  What’s a better way to praise your stage manager than by nominating them in a letter describing how wonderful their work was for you and your theater?  For any information and requirements to nominate your stage manager (or other awards),  please go to and check out the Perry Awards tab.

Reviewers, we still have several shows that need coverage – and some videos that need to be watched.  Please email for more information or check out the assignment page.

Thank you all for your hard work, dedication, and making theater great!  We appreciate you all!


With much love and appreciation,

PJ Campacci
President, New Jersey Association of Community Theaters
