Message from the Director

Dear Friends:Suze_picforbrochure

Don’t miss the excitement when the curtain comes up on a thrilling new season at the Stockton Performing Arts Center! The 2014-2015 Season is jam-packed with must-see performances and lectures. You won’t want to miss world-renowned psychic medium and New York Times best-selling author, James Van Praagh, Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary fame, Manhattan Lyric Opera: “An Afternoon of Romantic Arias,” Gaelic Storm or Martha Graham II.

This season I’m sure you’ll find a wonderful variety of performances in theatre, concerts and dance for audiences of all ages.

Last year the PAC’s partnership with the college’s Student Entertainment Team (SET) was so successful, we’re co-presenting three shows: dating coach, body language expert, best-selling author, and comedian, Ryan Clauson, who is known as “Mr. Attraction;” One Man Star Wars Trilogy; and comediennes Mel and El.

The Stockton Lecture series will feature Dr. Stephen Phillips, Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum. Dr. Phillips’ presentation on “King Tut” will be held at Absegami high school. Dr. Cary Mazer, former English Department Chair at University of Pennsylvania, discusses “Double Shakespeares.” In this talk, Mazer examines recent Shakespeare productions that close the gap between the actor and the character by simultaneously telling us stories about both.

This year we will present “From the Page to Film to Stage,” a program that features lectures, and also master classes to augment performances of “In the Heat of the Night” by LA Theatre Works and “Wuthering Heights” performed by Aquila Theatre Company.

We have special performances planned just for the younger set. Parents and children will sing along to “Puff The Magic Dragon” with Peter Yarrow. Family favorite, “The Jungle Book,” will bring the ‘bear necessities’ to the Stockton Performing Arts Center.

As you can see, there’s something for everyone!

Come join us for a wonderful season where the arts will come alive with music, dance, theatre and engaging speakers.

See you at the theatre!
