Plays in the Park Marks 50 Years With Free Concert

The Roosevelt Park theatrical venue will celebrate their anniversary with a day of fun and a concert featuring John Sebastian of the Lovin' Spoonful - all free.


It's been 50 years - where has all the time gone?

Plays in the Park, the popular theatrical venue in Roosevelt Park in Edison, will be celebrating a half century of providing Middlesex County residents with the best in theatre production.

This Sunday, August 12, they're celebrating their anniversary with a day-long free event starting at 1 pm.

The day will be devoted to family fun, including balloon sculptors, magicians, and vendors at the grove near the theatre. A host of free concerts during the day will be capped off with a concert performance by John Sebastian of the 1960s group, the Lovin' Spoonful. 

And for good measure, a limited-edition, full color, coffee table book detailing the history of Plays-in-the-Park will be available for purchase.

The schedule for the day goes like this:

  • 1 pm - Magicians, Clowns, Face Painters, Balloon Sculptors, Costumed Characters and Food Vendors will fill the shaded grove surrounding the theater 
  • 1:30 - 3 pm - Concert performance by the Broadway Pops Orchestra
  • 3:45 - 4:45 pm - Concert performance by StarFish! (Rock & Roll for Kids)
  • 5 pm - Gates open to the main theater seating area
  • 5:45 pm - Official program begins
  • 6 - 8 pm - Concert performance by John Sebastian (In case of rain, the Sebastian concert will be held at Middlesex County College.)

The amphitheatre is located at 1 Pine Drive in Roosevelt Park, right off Route 1 South in Edison.
