Setting the Stage
Performing Arts in the Long Beach Island Region is more than a summer tradition featuring popular musicals, drama and dance. In addition to free concerts that take place across the region all summer long there are extraordinary organizations that are dedicated to providing classic and creative live performances.
Celebrating 65 seasons, Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven is a perennial favorite that offers a summer schedule full of imaginative children's theater performances, popular concerts and Actor's Equity Main Stage productions bringing Broadway to the beach. With toe tapping musicals in both spring and summer and brilliant comedies and drama in the fall, Surflight wraps up the season with spectacular holiday shows.
The OceanFirst Theater at Stafford Township Art Center in Manahawkin provides a perfect setting for famous stand up comedians, lively concerts and philharmonic performances. This newly constructed theater schedules events throughout the year. It is also a venue for the Our Gang Players, the area's long running community theater for more than 30 years. Guaranteed to leave the audience asking for more, Our Gang brings together adults, teens and children who have a love for song and dance and nurture it into brilliant show stoppers.
