PST's Annual Children's Programming

Dear Princeton Summer Theater community,

Our mainstage season is well underway: Metamorphoses closed to rave reviews and build has begun for Pygmalion, directed by Princeton University lecturer, director, and playwright R.N. Sandberg.

Amidst all the excitement for this year's season, we want to make sure that you don't miss out on our other projects, including our affordable and educational children's programming. As a company of young artists ourselves, we are so passionate about bringing the magic of theater to young audiences. 

This year's children's show is The Legendary True Story of Sparrow Jones and the Jersey Devil, a new play for young audiences written by PST veterans Maeli Goren and Brad Wilson and featuring Maeve Brady as our bookish but plucky heroineSparrow Jones!

"Have you seen the Jersey Devil? Sparrow Jones has been afraid of it her whole life, so when she finds herself lost in the Pine Barrens, she has to use all her strength, wits and courage to find her way out! Sure to engage audience members of all ages, "The Legendary True Story of Sparrow Jones and the Jersey Devil" is a musical, magical, and interactive journey through New Jersey flora, fauna and folklore."

The story of Sparrow Jones & the Jersey Devil is written to help kids think about themselves as participants in a larger world; a world in which they have the power to love their family, home and planet actively and compassionately. Empowering, exuberant, and laugh-out-loud funny, you and your family won't want to miss Sparrow Jones!

Tickets for the show are $10, free for children under 3. Shows are at 11am on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from July 2-August 8. After each performance, actors come out to meet with children, sign their programs, and talk about the characters and the play! We're also happy to provide discounted group rates and to accommodate parties: just give us a call 1-732-997-0205 or email us at for more information.

We'll also be hosting a series of six Young Artists' Workshops for children ages 6-12. Come learn and play alongside the 2015 PST Company! Over the course of 6 weeks, we''ll explore some of the fundamentals of theater and work together to create our very own show, which we'll perform for family and friends at our last session together. Come to one or come to all -- we always welcome drop-ins!

All workshops are Friday afternoons from 1:30-4:30pm, July 3-August 7. Each workshop costs $30 to register -- save 20% by registering for all six workshops for $145! Register by emailing

As always, feel free to contact us at 1-732-997-0205 or at -- we love to hear from you.
