Our dinner theater is held in THE GALLERY. Dinner and desserts are served before the show, and you just need to spin your seats to the stage area at show time. The shows are limited to 80 people at 10 tables, and each table has 8 chairs. We discount for purchases of eight tickets or more. If you do not purchase a full table you will be seated with another party, which is a wonderful way to create new friendships. Please purchase tickets to our dinner shows early, with only 80 tickets per performance, we sell out quickly. If we are sold out, please call the box office and ask to be put on a waiting list to be called if we add more shows. We usually have one dinner theater show in the fall and one in the spring.


Our New Jersey live entertainment theater occasionally hosts small concerts and comedy shows in our gallery. Because of the size of THE GALLERY, these are more intimate than the shows on our main stage. They often include discussions with the artist on a basis you will not see in a larger venue. Both the classics series and playwright™ series must be purchased at the door on the day of the show. The schedule changes often, so be sure to check this site frequently or call our box office at 732-367-7789.


This unique concert series allows you the share the stage with the artist. Patrons will be seated on stage overlooking the interior of the beautifully restored historic theater. The artist performs just an arms length away! This is a concert experience like no other, and one you will never forget. Come early to enjoy a few pre-show drinks at our fully-stocked bar and stay afterwards to mingle with the artists, buy CDs, and pose for pictures.
