Board of Directors

Hello Freehold Community,


What a great summer we had!  We began the summer with our Engaged Theatre Tour of King Lear which we were privileged to share with our amazing partner organizations and our larger community.  We ended the summer with attending the Mayor's Arts Award ceremony and receiving an award along with 9 other recipients. It was great to see so many of you at our events this past summer.  Thank you for your support.


Our eyes are fixed firmly on the upcoming fall and our fall classes.  We hope you'll join us at our Fall Open House and sample some of our classes for free (RSVP appreciated, more info below). 


Here's wishing you all a fantastic fall ...

AlyssaKeene From Our Studio: "Rediscovering the Bard" by Alyssa Keene    


Signing up for a Shakespeare Intensive seemed exciting, slightly impetuous, and a bit daunting. After 13 years of acting on Fringe and LORT stages and everything in between, I had only been in one Shakespeare play... as a tiny blue kabuki cowboy singing Sons of the Pioneers songs.  I hadn't had any verse on my lips in a long time.
