A March Message from the President of NJACT

Happy March, fellow NJACT Members and Theaters!

I can’t believe March is already here!  The weather is progressively getting nicer, so what better way to celebrate than see great theater around the state.  I know I have mentioned this before, but one thing I love doing with reviews is visiting a new theater in our state, seeing a show, and make a day out of it.  We have truly fantastic theaters in our state; go explore and have fun! I am always sad to see when some theaters are not able to get their shows fully covered. By signing up in an area outside of your regular turf, you can ensure that these theaters get the coverage that they deserve AND may see make some new connections along the way. Just a reminder, if a show is unreviewed please send in a link to be reviewed.  If you know a show went unreviewed and you saw it, let us know!  Let’s make sure that this is the best year yet!  Theater reps, please remember to check with your designated two reviewers to make sure that they have EACH done their two reviews for the year. This keeps the reviewers and theaters in good standing for nominations and awards.  The season runs until June 30th, so there is still time to get those reviews completed!

Don’t forget, there is still time to nominate your stage mangers, theaters, and the unsung backstage heroes for a Perry nomination or one of our specialty award. These nominations are separate, and up to the theaters to nominate, so please get those nominations out! You can find more information about these awards and the forms under our Perry Awards tab. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

As always, thank you to everyone that keeps theater and the arts alive in NJ.  You all are the backbone of NJACT and we are thrilled to see so many wonderful shows playing across our state.  SO… now let’s go out and review a show and let’s get this spring party started!

With much love and appreciation,

PJ Campacci
President, New Jersey Association of Community Theaters
