To Light Opera of New Jersey’s patrons and supporters:

We regret to inform you that we must cancel our planned summer 2021 production of In the Heights in response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.  As always, the health and well-being of our audience members, our performing artists and our production teams is our top priority.  Less importantly but still of concern, New Jersey’s pandemic response currently restricts all indoor gatherings to the lesser of 150 people or 25% of venue capacity.  Under those conditions, we cannot sell enough tickets to cover even a substantial fraction of our production costs.

LONJ is effectively in hibernation for at least the remainder of 2021, with no immediate plans for live performances or in-person fundraisers this year.  Planning for our 2022 season is in full swing, however, so please stay tuned!  Meanwhile, all of us at LONJ wish you well in these troubling times and we look forward to seeing you once again in the theater when we return.

Welcome to LONJ!

LONJ (Light Opera of New Jersey) is a premier regional musical theater and light opera company. Its performances feature professional singers in lead roles backed by highly skilled amateurs, accompanied by some of the area’s finest instrumentalists and supported by fabulous production teams. LONJ is a registered non-profit founded in 1995 and based in Basking Ridge, NJ.
