Just across the Hudson River from the world’s capital of stage and production, Bergen Community College offers students a direct pipeline to Broadway and beyond through its theatre program. Students have the opportunity to learn both on-stage and backstage, preparing them for careers in front of the bright lights or behind them. Students lead the Bergenstages theatre troupe, which performs numerous productions each academic year in venues such as the 300-seat Anna Maria Ciccone Theatre and the Ender Hall Laboratory Theatre.
Beyond the classroom, Bergen’s theatres host some of stage and screen’s biggest acts, bringing the ballyhoo of Broadway and heights of Hollywood to Bergen County. Past visitors include Ben Vereen, the Dance Theatre of Harlem and even a scene from the Sopranos!
