ASC at NJCU officially became the University’s theatrical company-in-residence in 2008, making NJCU only the fourth institution of higher education in New Jersey to be affiliated with a professional theatre company. The collaboration between the company, which is in its 13th season, and NJCU began in 2005. Since that time, NJCU and ASC at NJCU have partnered to present professional classical theatre to both the NJCU and wider Jersey City communities and NJCU faculty and students have been regularly involved in ASC productions and workshops.
ASC at NJCU works through the NJCU Foundation, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Programming is made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner organization of the National Endowment for the Arts, New Jersey City University, and contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations. ASC at NJCU is a proud member of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance.
Actors Shakespeare Company at NJCU’s main stage, the 140-seat West Side Theatre on the University campus, is conveniently located at 285 West Side Avenue between Culver and Audubon Avenues in Jersey City. The Theatre is just minutes from Routes 440, 1-9, and I-78. There is ample parking in the University’s adjacent lots on West Side Avenue. The West Side Theatre is wheelchair accessible. ADA accessible seating is available. Assisted listening devices and audio and large print programs are available free of charge at all performances.
