Plays-in-the-Park is a locally funded musical theater spectacular that has been entertaining families in Middlesex County for decades. This thrilling experience bursts onto the scene each summer with Broadway-level productions at the Stephen J. Capestro outdoor amphitheater in Roosevelt Park, Edison.

The fun continues through fall when Plays-in-the-Park produces indoor children’s musicals and comes to a smashing close in December with a run of performances of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at State Theatre New Jersey.
