last season was terrific and we have you, our patrons, the best audiences in New Jersey to thank for our success.
Over the past several seasons we have seen our outreach programs expand, our offerings diversify, our performances
celebrated and our audiences multiply. Your support is one reason CSC will be represented by three, (yes three!)
productions in New York City this year. Two plays developed in our Women Playwrights Project will transfer to New
York: THE UNFORTUNATES (2011-12 CSC Season Event),
entered in this years Fringe Festival and THE ENGLISH BRIDE (2012-13
CSC Season Event),
opening at 59e59 in October. In addition, BREAKFAST WITH MUGABE (2010-11
CSC Season Event), the inaugural production in our Black Box space,
will be opening at the Signature Theatre in August. None of this would have been possible without your support.
Now the obvious question is, what do we do for an encore? Well, read on friends and get a sneak peek into 2013-2014.
We kick off the season with our GALA performance and who better to highlight than the great BETTY
of Broadway's greatest stars. From CATS to SUNSET BOULEVARD, Betty Buckley has dominated the stage like no other,
and we are pleased to bring her to the Centenary Stage for our 2013-2014 season opening GALA!
Our theatre series kicks off with the comedy/thriller DEATHTRAP followed
by the hit musical version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL,
The Musical that so wowed our audiences two years ago. If laughter is the best
medicine, than get a dose of David Ives adaptation of THE
LIAR, about a young man who can't tell the truth and
his servant who can't tell a lie. The Black Box Festival is returning with three weeks of wonderful theatre in
the intimate KUTZ Theatre featuring MIRACLES
AND MINDGAMES showcasing magic and illusion, BITTERSUITE, a musical
revue performed by some of Broadways best performers, and the inspired silliness of THE
ESSENCE-A YIDDISH DIM SUM which can't really be explained but just needs to be experienced…and no, you don't have to be Jewish to
I started out just to mention a few and have gotten carried away by the wealth of talent and events that we are
presenting this season. So much more is planned and there are numerous options and flex passes available.
Give yourself and your family the gift of music, theatre and dance. Join us for what promises to be an extraordinary
2013-2014. You won't regret it!
