Some Announcements from the President of NJACT

Hello NJACT Membership Theaters, Theater Representatives, and Reviewers!

I cannot believe how this year has flown by. The reopening of theaters in our 2021-2022 reviewer calendar season is coming to an end as of June 30th — and it feels great to say we have had a full year of live theater. I am proud of the amazing comeback our NJ community theaters have had and I am excited to see what the next season brings.

Now, down to some business! If you still have outstanding reviews to turn in, please do so ASAP. Any questions? Contact us at and we will be happy to help! As we approach the end of the season, we have some shows that still need to be reviewed on our master schedule AND that have been submitted to us virtually, who still need reviewers from their initial posting. Please, sign up for shows – email us to review submitted shows (let us know at or – let’s get these shows seen and reviewed! As the weather continues to get nicer, here is my suggestion: make a day out of a reviewing a show. I love to go to different places, walk around the main drag where all the businesses are, relax, and eat. I love to see the immense variety of towns and theaters our state has to offer…and I know you will too. So I encourage all to make a day out of it, go have fun, and enjoy a show!

Next up, we have another Virtual Reviewer Training on June 11th! Please email for more information or if you wish to attend.

We are also looking for nominations for the Lifetime Achievement Award, Community Theater of the Year, the David P. McMenemie Award and Stage Manager Nominations. Please go to for all descriptions and submission procedures. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at

Enjoy the rest of May!
