A Growing Collaboration

As we continuously work to broaden our ability in expanding our audience’s exposure to the performing arts, new and existing artistic collaborations are vital.

That’s why we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Lakeland Youth Symphony of northern NJ as they mark 65 years as Morris County’s Youth Orchestra. On Saturday, April 22nd, here at the Historic Palace Theatre, join us as we celebrate music and theatre with performances from Lakeland’s youth orchestras and The Growing Stage’s performing artists. Plus we’ll have a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, wine and beer, raffles, and more!

At TGS, through our ongoing mission, we have established an incredible gift that continues to create lasting memories and unique experiences. We thank you for your continued support throughout that time.

All proceeds will be dedicated towards the support of our artistic and educational programming, as well as the Lakeland Orchestra and its children. Donations are welcome any time and will help support the missions and programming of both organizations.

See you on April 22nd!

Please note, guests must be 21 years or older to attend.

Get Involved

You can help support the event by becoming a sponsor.

Generous corporate and community sponsorship and fund-raising events such as our annual Party at the Palace, enable us to maintain the affordability of our programs, a very important consideration for today’s theatre patrons. We truly believe that the powerful, positive influence of the arts in children’s lives helps them to grow into caring, intelligent adults who cherish the arts and have the skills to succeed.

All contributions to this event are tax-deductible, and each donor will be recognized in the Party at The Palace program. Thank you for your consideration and your contribution!

Thank You For Helping Keep The Growing Stage Mission Alive!

Our Mission—
To nurture the development of the performing arts through education — and to create, produce and perform works that engage the entire family.



Support for the Growing Stage comes in many forms. With that in mind, to truly engage our patrons and our community while upholding our mission, there’s nothing like a big event. 

At our yearly event, you’ll experience signature auction items, delicious food and top notch entertainment. A party with The Children’s Theatre of NJ is not soon forgotten. 

Our one-of-kind space within The Historic Palace Theatre is the backdrop for gathering, celebrating the arts and each other.
