Middlesex County Plays in the Park

Plays-in-the-Park is a Middlesex County summer tradition. Performing in a production is a rite of passage for many theater students in the area, and families gather on warm summer nights to watch top notch performances of popular plays and musicals. 

 

The Plays-in-the-Park theater is conveniently located one block south of the Menlo Park Mall off of Route 1, in Edison, N.J. The turn off is called Grandview Avenue. At the top of the short hill make your first right on to Pine Drive and the Park Rangers will guide you to a parking spot.
