Snaps & Snippets: Theater for kids marks return to campus at Centenary

    Theater productions returned to Centenary University, in Hackettstown, in the form of several outdoor productions for young audiences, the first public events held on campus since COVID-19 halted in-person events in March. Presented by the Centenary Stage Company, the three plays held in July represent the first steps of a strategy to reopen the campus.

    The three free outdoor productions — “Polkadots: The Cool Kids Musical” on July 8, “Miss Nelson is Missing!” on July 22 and “Schoolhouse Rock” on July 29 — used social distancing, reserved seating and creative staging to safely bring cultural offerings to northwestern New Jersey communities during the pandemic.
