Save Our Stage – Four Ways You Can Help Today

Aug 5, 2020 View All News

Despite the incredible challenges brought on by COVID-19, our historic, nonprofit performing arts center is still determined to serve as your home for cultural entertainment and arts education.

Now more than ever, we understand how important our mission is and adapted by making The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC into a digital platform and livestreaming family-friendly shows in partnership with the Westfield Garden State Plaza. We are now set to launch the Sunset Drive-In Concert Series so that residents can enjoy live entertainment in a safe environment. 

Our theater went dark five months ago and will likely remain so into next year. The building has had a few names in its nearly 100-year existence because every time this cultural beacon’s existence was challenged, the community rallied to keep its spirit alive. This is your chance to carry on that heritage and ensure we can welcome you back through our doors for the joy of live entertainment when it is safe again.

Four Ways You Can Help Today

  • Make A Donation – Without our ticket and concessions revenue, your tax-deductible contribution will enable us to maintain and improve our facilities for your return.
  • Become A Member – Joining our Membership program today will help bergenPAC bring your favorite stars back to our stage.
  • Corporate Contribution – As a key anchor in the region’s cultural and economic landscape, when businesses support bergenPAC they help strengthen the community as a whole.
  • Take Action – A proposed federal bill called Save Our Stages Act or SOS Act would give an incredible boost to historic theaters like ours, along with the hundreds of in-house and touring staffers and crew members who fuel our industry. Please let your elected officials know today that you want to see historic theaters like bergenPAC live on for future generations.

We are always so appreciative of how our members, sponsors, community partners, artists, and volunteers make bergenPAC such a special institution. Your support during this challenging time has meant so much as we have strived to hang on.

We know the show must go on. As we all look ahead to a brighter day, let us continue to stand together in the great spirit of the arts. 

Thank you from everyone here at bergenPAC!
