Established in 1994, The Main Street Theatre Company is an award-winning community theater that performed at the Sayreville Senior Center, and then the Step Inn Ballroom. In 2005, the company found a new home in the auditorium of Garden Friends Day School on Bordentown Avenue in Old Bridge.
The Main Street Theatre Company strives to provide cultural enhancement for its patrons, participants, and community through the production of high quality theatrical entertainment. Throughout the year, the company produces full-staged Broadway plays and musicals complete with professional sets, costumes, lighting and sound.
This year’s season included “Proof,” “Guys and Dolls” and its first dance show, “Just Dance.” In May, the play “Musical Comedy Murders of 1940” opens. In the summer, the company produces its junior show, “Once Upon a Mattress,” performed by children ages 5 through 13, and then the youth show “Gypsy” performed by actors ages 13 through 23. These two popular programs are a great way for children and young adults to learn about the performing arts.
In October, the company will produce “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” The season will conclude with “A Christmas Carol: The Musical” in December. Additionally, the Kidworks season provides entertainment for younger audiences. “Superheroes, Unite!” will open the end of May.
The company offers opportunities for all ages and experiences to act on stage, build and paint a set, stage manage or volunteer to work the house.
