NEWTON — New Jersey Theatre Alliance presents Pushcart Players production of “Stone Soup” on Wednesday, March 13, at 5 p.m. This event is part of the Alliance’s Stages Festival, the state’s largest annual theatre festival that provides free and discounted theatre events for all ages throughout the month of March. This event is free.

Rooted in the belief that the arts are basic to education, Pushcart Players joins the literacy movement with a collection of folk tales brought to life through the magic of story-telling. Entitled “Stone Soup and Other Stories,” this charming presentation drawn from international classics is an excellent springboard for subsequent reading and reading-related activities as well as discussion and projects on multi-cultural themes.

“Stone Soup and Other Stories” contains story favorites from Africa, India, Eastern Europe and our own United States. Filled with music, color, fantasy and fun, each tale gently raises value clarification issues while also introducing the spirit and customs of different cultures.

The Stages Festival offers dozens of performances, workshops, classes, and events at theatres, art centers, libraries, schools, senior centers, and other community venues throughout the state. The program was developed to encourage New Jersey’s residents to attend their local professional theatres by making the experience affordable, accessible, and fun.

“The Alliance is grateful that The Newton Theatre is participating in the 2019 Stages Festival,” said John McEwen, Executive Director of the Alliance. “For 22 years, Stages has provided theatrical experiences for thousands of residents across New Jersey. These efforts would not be made possible without the wonderful help of our partners such as The Newton Theatre.”

For more information, or to make a reservation, call 973-THE-NEWT (973-940-6398) or email info@TheNewtonTheatre.com. The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street, Newton NJ. To receive a full schedule of events for The Stages Festival please visit stagesfestival.org.
