Neighborhood: Montclair Center
Luna Stage is culturally diverse and seeks to create an environment which is inclusive of the many voices in our society and which fosters the creativity of performing artists in all disciplines.
Luna Stage is committed to taking an active role in the community, providing theatre arts education to students of all ages, and introducing future audiences to a broad spectrum of theatrical experiences.
Luna Stage offers an intimate Off-Off Broadway setting where every seat is closer to the stage than most commercial theatres' front rows. Situated in the heart of Montclair's vibrant town center, within walking distance of the Montclair Art Museum and many wonderful restaurants, Luna boasts two black box theatres, seating 99 and 50 people respectively, and a 50-seat studio theatre. The spacious lobby is graced by a stunning overhead mural by Nicholas von Bujdoss, and an on-going series of art installations will be presented to complement the theatrical productions.
Luna Stage was founded in 1992 by Jane Mandel, Artistic Director, and it became an Equity Theatre in 1995.
Luna Stage is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation and a full member of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance.
It is a recipient of grants from such organizations as the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
