Live theater is alive and well in Bergen County. No matter where you live from Ridgewood to Fort Lee or from Bergenfield to Mahwah, every Bergen County homeowner is within a 15 minute drive to a live local theater.
Teaneck has 2 major artistic entities – The Garage Theater Group and The Puffin Foundation. The Garage Theater Group has been presenting live theater since 1993 and is located in the Fairleigh Dickinson University Becton Theater. A strong focus of The Garage Theater Group is nurturing young actors. Theater classes are offered for ages 6-18 during the school year plus there’s a summer camp. Also offered are adult classes, individualized coaching and a dance class.
At the end of each play, the cast and director get together with the audience for an open forum discussion. This is a uniquely special part of seeing a Garage Theater production and it’s a very enriching experience. I’ve attended plays here which I’ve enjoyed tremendously. It’s also quite inspiring to see how talented our young local actors are.
The next 2 productions are going to be a lot of fun and both are musicals: Narnia from March 11-13 and Seussical from June 3-12. Tickets are affordable and I’m sure that both productions will sell out quickly.
If you own a Teaneck home, you’re only a hop, skip and a jump away but no matter where you live in Bergen County, the Garage Theater Group is conveniently located. At the same time, The Garage Theater Group is a positive for Teaneck real estate. Being able to tell Teaneck home buyers that we have live theater in town adds value to Teaneck homes.
