JUNE 2024 Letter from the President

Hello Friends, Theaters, and Members:

IT’S JUUUUUNE!  Where does the time fly?  I can’t believe we are at the end of the 2023-2024 Reviewer Season already! Our new season starts July 1s t and is just around the corner.

That being said – we are in full on Perry’s 2024 mode.  Here are some reminders:

  1. Get your reviews in asap. Reminder emails have been sent out to those overdue and to those reviewing in May and June who need to submit them ASAP.
  2. Do NOT forget to nominate your Stage Managers, Community Theater, Lifetime Achievement, and those for the unsung backstage hero, the David P. McMenemie Award.  For any information on these please go to www.njact.org and look under the Perry Awards pulldown menu. Nominations will be due by June 30th!
  3. Start thinking about your outfit for the ceremony – we love this!

Now onto the really fun stuff! Please keep an eye out for our “Save the Date” announcements for both the nomination and the award ceremonies.  We will be announcing this exciting information quite soon.  

In closing, don’t forget to sign up for shows in the new season! The plea will soon go out for July shows – and it is important that both theaters and reviewers get their mandatory reviews in, so as to stay in good standing.  There will be some updates and communications coming through as we start the new season, so make sure you are staying up to date on all info and updates as to standings.

I hope your summer may be filled with fun, great people, and memories.  Now let’s get this 2024 party started!


With much love and appreciation,

PJ Campacci
President, New Jersey Association of Community Theaters
