The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCCArts), a community-based, non- profit performing arts center, presents a wide range of cultural programming by professional touring companies of regional, national and international stature. Providing affordable entertainment and educational programming to the college and the community, RVCCArts strives to be a meeting place of diverse ideas and art—a cultural centerpiece—providing a central location where college and community, teacher and learner can come together and share the transforming experience of live performance.
Last year, almost 3,500 students and teachers attended School-Time Performances, bringing us to 165,000 in attendance since we started this series of arts-in-education events. This season we offer grades preK through 12 eleven events on School-Time, as well as some wonderful learning opportunities available on our other series. We are very proud to offer what we consider to be top quality educational field trips.
We hope that you see them in the same way and that you and your students will be joining in this year. For information or to make a reservation, call or email Jill Erwin at 908.648.8474 or jill@rvccArts.org.

Seating is general admission, allowing families to choose a comfortable spacing. Families who have not been to The Theatre at RVCC before are invited to stop by and visit the theatre space and explore the seating areas two hours before the show. They also may visit in advance by making an appointment.
