Living Sapphires

“Now glow’d the firmament with living sapphires...”

John Milton, Paradise Lost

Sapphire Anniversary
THE 45th SEASON


The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is one of the largest and most prestigious Shakespeare theatres in North America. Our dedication to artistic excellence and to exemplary education programs has put us on the international map as well. With more educational offerings than any other theatre in the state, we’ve served hundreds of thousands of students, educators, and adults from across the nation and abroad.

And our audience and reputation continue to grow. Now, in celebration of our
45th anniversary, we swell again, adding a seventh main stage show to our Season!
Most importantly, like the stars in the firmament, our dazzling artists, like “living Sapphires,” will light up your nights once again. Join us for what promises to be a most glorious and exhilarating year!
