Dear Friends and Patrons of the Spring Lake Theatre Company,
First, we would like to thank you, our loyal patrons, for voting Spring Lake Theatre Company the BEST Community Theater in Monmouth County in the Asbury Park Press Readers Choice Contest for seven out of the last eight years! We counted each and every vote on our 2015 Scrooge Patron Survey and the results were clear. Grease is our first show of the 2016-2017 season and Oliver!, Seussical and Godspell, all following closely behind in the vote count, will follow. Surprisingly enough, William Shakespeare is still a star. A Midsummer Night’s Dream was the outstanding leader in the non-musical category. We are ready and eager to bring you a fun-filled season for families of all ages!
We are trying something new this year which we hope will please our faithful patrons. After numerous suggestions on our survey and deep consideration, we have decided to move our evening curtain time up to 7:30 PM for ALL PERFORMANCES. Please make a note of this; no more 8:00 PM performances! We will be pushing out reminders regularly to all ticket holders regarding this change.
We hope that you are as excited about this new season as we are. We depend on your patronage to enable us to continue to bring the highest quality theatre available south of Broadway! We are blessed with an incredibly talented group of directors, designers and performers who love having the opportunity to share their gifts with you. Please spread the word; there is no place like the Spring Lake Theatre!

Grease is STILL the word and it is coming to our stage by very popular demand! Join the Rydell High School Class of 1959 as they sing and dance their way through the music that became the soundtrack of a generation. You will be dancing in the aisles to great songs like Summer Nights, Greased Lightning and don’t forget Hand Jive! Put on your poodle skirts and an extra pair of Bobbie socks because this show is sure to knock ‘em off!
Consider yourself enchanted by Oliver! In this musical theatre masterpiece which has the distinction of winning both Oscar and Tony Awards, the streets of London come to life as Oliver, a workhouse orphan, encounters all sorts of dangerous characters as he searches for the love and warmth of family. Favorite songs include Consider Yourself, Where is Love and As Long as He Needs Me.
One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of four Athenian lovers and a group of actors who find themselves lost in a mystical forest. Each person experiences unique encounters with the spirits (or faeries) who inhabit that place. Filled with comedy, romance, magic, music and even a little dancing, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a celebration of life and everything that makes falling in love so magical.
Our beloved annual production Scrooge returns to our stage for the 34th year and it is more popular than ever! Our lavish production filled with beautiful moments has become a holiday tradition for generations of family spanning over three decades. If you have never experienced the magic of our Scrooge, we assure you that you will not be disappointed. Please reserve early as we sell out quickly!
Dr. Seuss’ best-loved characters collide and cavort in this unforgettable musical caper. Children from 3 to 103 cannot resist the charm and the lovely life lessons learned from Horton the Elephant and his many friends! This wonderful production is guaranteed to make your heart smile, your feet happy and the entire world seem brighter. We promise! Favorite songs include Alone in the Universe, Oh the Thinks You Can Think! and Amayzing Mayzie.
In Godspell, the Gospel according to Matthew is presented in modern-day setting. This musical (written by Stephen Schwartz of Wicked fame) is based around a small group of friends coming together to understand love and ultimately, loss. The show has the ability to make you laugh and weep; through two acts, Godspell takes its audience through an inspiring and experimental journey of what it means to truly be human. Favorite songs include Day By Day and We Beseech Thee.
