The New Jersey Repertory Company is a non-profit professional theater located on Broadway, in the heart of the ethnically diverse community of Long Branch.

The primary mission of the theater is to develop and produce new plays with diverse themes. It is also devoted to creating an atmosphere where classics can take on a fresh look and forgotten plays can find a home.

NJ Rep is proud to offer playwrights the opportunity to develop their new works in a creative setting, so in addition to NJ Rep's Main Stage productions, 25-30 staged readings are presented each year. These readings give playwrights a chance to hear their play, discuss it with an audience and further develop it as needed. A discussion follows each reading.
