To provide for the cultural enhancement of our patrons, participants and community by the production of high quality theatrical entertainment.
The Main Street Theatre Company was founded over 25 years ago by a group of Sayreville High School Graduates who shared a common vision of bringing a high quality community theater to the Greater Middlesex County Community. The group has produced hundreds of theatrical productions; including over 130 full scale plays and musicals, 45 Kidworks Theatre for Children productions, 6 original works, as well as 3 NJ “premiere” productions.
Through the years Main Street has gained recognition from the community and its peers including being named by the Home News Readers Poll as “One of the Best Community Theatres” by its reader and as members of the NJ community theatre organization NJ ACT (Achievement in Community Theatre), Main Street has garnered numerous “Perry Awards” including Best Production of a Musical, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design and Best Musical Direction to name a few. NJ ACT has also honored 3 of Main Streets Trustees with “Lifetime Achievement” Awards for their contributions to NJ Community Theatre.
Formally performing at the historic Step Inn Ballroom in Sayreville for 14 years, the group lost its lease in 2003 and found its new home on Bordentown Avenue in Parlin. Despite the obstacles of limited funding and high production and occupancy costs, Main Street has continually grown over the years to what is now a 6 show season of Main Stage productions and has grown to include MSTC Kidworks, Main Street Junior/Youth Productions, Main Street Theatre Academy, Just Dance, shows and classes from our resident improv troupe "Death by Improve" as well as many other concerts, karaoke and open mic nights. This skill and ability to produce such high quality theater programs with so few resources has amazed our patrons and associates and has become known to them as “The Magic That is Main Street”.
The name is Main Street Theatre Company, but Main Street Theater is fine too.
