The Kelsey Theatre is a 383-seat theater located on the campus of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey.
This theater is the home to 12 different resident community theater companies and semi-professional theater companies. This very active theater is constantly offering auditions and performances, which is the reason that The Kelsey Theatre Report was created – as a way for the New Jersey theater community to stay up to date on everything revolving around one of the most active theaters in New Jersey.
As a community college theater, The Kelsey Theatre has a three-part mission:
- To serve the COMMUNITY by offering a diverse series of arts events, suitable for the entire family, aimed at expanding the young peoples’ awareness of the arts of many cultures, the accessibility of classic literature, and the many different forms of performing arts.
- To educate the COLLEGE students and staff by providing exposure to the many different genres of theater and affording them the opportunity to produce theater themselves; in addition to working with more experienced semi-professional and professional performers and directors.
- To support the THEATER community by providing serious and meaningful performance opportunities necessary to their development as artists.
