Plays in the Park in Edison 2023

Here are more fun activities in Edison, New Jersey.

  • As of October 3, 2023, these are the details that have been released about this event.


Welcome to Plays-in-the-Park, a unique, government-sponsored outdoor amphitheater!

Schoolhouse Rock Live! JR. – Based on the ever-popular, award-winning Saturday morning educational cartoon series, this Emmy Award-winning series and pop culture phenomenon (celebrating its 50th Anniversary) teaches lessons with clever, catchy tunes. This fast-paced musical follows Tom, a young schoolteacher, who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music. Memorable songs such as “Just a Bill,” “Lolly, Lolly, Lolly,” “Conjunction Junction” and “Interjections” bring his lesson plans vividly to life.

When is the raindate?

Should it rain during a performance, they may need to cancel the show for the safety of the audience, actors, technicians, and musicians. However, if you save your ticket stub, you may use it to attend any future summer performance up to a year later at no additional charge. You do not have to wait in the ticket buyer’s line; There will be a special table set up where you can immediately exchange your stub for a new ticket on the night you decide to revisit. The rain check line will open 3 minutes after the Box Office opens. There is only one chair allowed for each rain check ticket stub. Additional tickets cannot be purchased on the rain check line. The stub is only good for the summer shows.
