A Letter from the President

Hello to the NJACT Membership!

The NJACT Board and I are thrilled to see theater coming alive again in New Jersey. I don’t know what the new normal is going to be yet, but I know NJACT and the NJ Perry Awards WILL be a part of it! NJ Theater is back! The 2022 NJ Perry Awards Ceremony will be live and in person this year with information forthcoming in the months ahead…

We have had some behind the scenes changes that we want to announce!  I will be stepping into the role of the President of NJACT and Alissa Valiante into the role of Vice President. This is my 13th year on the board and I am thrilled to have this opportunity to follow such inspirational predecessors and mentors. Continuing with me will be Rita Greco as Treasurer, Elizabeth Rzasa as the Director of Communication, and Donna Serio as our Reviewer Liaison and new Secretary.  I want to thank previous president Patrick Starega, and our former secretary Amy Levine, for all the years of service and dedication to the organization. You will be missed and I wish you both much success in your future endeavors!
We will be planning some Reviewer Trainings for the near future, with an upcoming virtual one on Saturday, April 30th (please check our Facebook or email membership@njact.org for details!) and an in person one in June.  Stay tuned for the future email and social media blasts for info!  With all that we are planning for the 2022 NJ Perry Awards Ceremony, I am excited to see you all in person soon!
