The Greek Theatre

There's nothing like the experience of outdoor theatre! Travel back in time to centuries past via our new Outdoor Stage, on the campus of the College of Saint Elizabeth in nearby Morris Township (at the Convent Station train stop). The beautiful grass-and-stone amphitheatre - inspired by the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens , and one of the only theatres of its kind in the United States - debuted as our newest performance space in 2002.

The venue accommodates approximately 400 audience members. Bring a blanket or low beach chair, or rent a seat cushion for a nominal fee.

Picnics are encouraged! The atmosphere is perfect for a family outing, "date night" or get-together with friends.

In the event of inclement weather:

It is our desire to complete every performance, and we will make every effort to "raise the curtain" and finish each show despite light rainfall.


In the event of heavy rains or winds, however, we may delay the start of the show, or the completion of the show, for up to two 15-minute intervals, in the hope that the weather will clear. Announcements will be made informing audience members of "holds." We may also pause to take precautions to ensure the safety and health of the performers and crew.


To find out if a show is cancelled prior to curtain time, please call the Box Office at 973-408-5600. A Box Office associate or a recorded message will advise you accordingly. Or, log onto www.cancellations.com.


If inclement weather necessitates canceling a show prior to curtain time, that decision will be made at least two hours before curtain. The Box Office staff will attempt to contact all ticketholders by phone to announce a cancellation and reschedule tickets for another performance of the same production.


Refunds will not be issued for cancelled performances. However, exchange fees will be waived. If you are unable to attend another Outdoor Stage performance, you will receive a gift certificate in the amount of your order good towards any Main Stage production this season.
