The Stages Festival ~ FREE Family Friendly Live Theater in New Jersey

Posted on: March 9th, 2018 by and

 

At Jersey Family Fun, we love seeing how stories can come alive by taking our children to live theatre performances.  There is just something about seeing a show performed in front of you that draws you in in a way a movie or tv show just can’t match. Because many theatre groups can’t match the budgets of the big movie production companies, it’s easy to miss out on these shows because you just didn’t know about them.

How fortunate are we then that every March the New Jersey Theatre Alliance and its membership collaborate to offer The Stages Festival. It’s a month of performances, workshops and events in New Jersey with discounted and/or free tickets. In fact, with the exception of a couple events, our list of The Stages Festival shows below are all FREE for children. Tickets for adults are most of the time $5, sometimes $10, and a few just ask for whatever donation you can make.

 

Listed below are family performances during the Stages Festival.  You can find a complete list at the Stages Festival website. Click the links for more information on the show and it’s location. Reservations are required for most events and many sell out quickly; please make your reservations as soon as possible.

 

For easy reference, this The Stages Festival events listing will also be available on the Jersey Family Fun page under the calendar tab. Individual events will be listed on our Calendar of events.
