When The Monmouth Symphony Orchestra played its first note in 1948, it actually had a different name: Spring Lake Sinfonietta. By 1950 it was known as the Monmouth Little Symphony, but by 1960, it had gained such a following that "little" ceased to apply. So its name changed again, this time to its current moniker, and since then its presence has only continued to grow. Today after over 65 seasons of concerts, The Monmouth Symphony Orchestra continues to make live orchestral music available to Monmouth County, New Jersey with its roster of over 60 dedicated and passionate musicians. its credits include shows at Carnegie Hall and the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove, and its roster of visiting artists includes world-renowned musicians.

“This talented company is a gem in New Jersey," declared Broadway World's Marina Kennedy. It would seem the residents of the Garden State agree—American Repertory Ballet was crowned Favorite Dance Company three separate times by the Jersey Arts People's Choice Awards. Its journey to this distinction began in 1963 when Audrée Estey, the founder of Princeton Ballet School, created Princeton Regional Ballet Company as the professional arm of the institution. By the time its name changed to the current incarnation, the Ballet had already been showcasing an array of both classic and contemporary masterpieces by Alvin Ailey, Twyla Tharp, and Dominique Dumais. It's continued to celebrate the art of the dance and test tippytoes to their limit via original productions, tours to Portugal, and traditions such as its annual staging of The Nutcracker, an ARB fixture since 1964.
"We deliberately eliminate distraction," the minds behind the One Year Lease Theater Company say on their website. It's an approach that succinctly sums up the works they stage: stripped-down productions that focus on dialogue, character development, and human expression instead of ornate costumes and holographic set pieces. And it's a formula that's been working since the company's 2001 inception. In the decade since, the theater has drawn praise from media outlets around the city, including NYTheatre.com, which said the company "should serve as inspiration to other theatre groups."
