An Update from bergenPAC President & CEO

April 8, 2021

Dear Patron of bergenPAC,

As the COVID-19 vaccine roll out expands, we are optimistic that we will be able to safely reopen the theater for large events later this year and once again bring people together for the joy of entertainment.

However, at this time bergenPAC remains closed for full capacity, presented concerts through at least the end of June. As we continue to consult with the New Jersey State Health Department regulations, we will announce plans for possible shows later than that when information is available. We appreciate our community’s continued patience as we prepare to welcome everyone back safely.

Meanwhile, we hope to have some more exciting news for you later this spring.

Dominic Roncace
bergenPAC President & CEO

5. There is still a way to show support while the Taub Stage is dark: join or renew as a Member!

Our performances and memberships may have paused with the theater temporarily going dark, but you can still help your community in a big way. The generosity of our supporters is what enables bergenPAC to deliver on its nonprofit mission to make live performing arts and arts education more accessible to everyone.

Rising to the current challenges, we are launching a drive-in concert series this summer that will let residents safely enjoy live performances. Meanwhile, The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC moved its classes and many of its outreach programs to virtual platforms, continuing to inspire and develop the next generation of artists.

We hope to maintain these programs at a time when the community really needs us. Please consider renewing your membership or joining the program today to help keep the arts alive in your community. In addition to the great perks you’ll enjoy as a member when the theater reopens, your support provides incredible opportunities for local children through our scholarship program, ensuring that no one is turned away because of financial hardship.

Your Membership truly makes a difference.
