The Premier Theatre Company has been providing excellent entertainment to the people of New Jersey for well over 30 years. The company has attained and surpassed many New Jersey theater milestones, and has left a lasting impression on countless audiences.
It all began with four acclaimed performances of Sunday in the Park with George. Premier was the first company in the world to present the show after its run on Broadway. During our first season, only 20 dedicated performers showed up to audition. Today, over 600 talented individuals from the tristate area have auditioned for the opportunity to spend a season onstage with us. Our company now presents four to eight shows a season, while hosting numerous concerts and cabarets throughout the year.
We have had the pleasure of working with award winning actors and actresses, including:
To show appreciation for the people that helped us grow over the years, we have given back to the community in several ways. By donating tickets for our productions to non-profit organizations, we’ve helped create exposure to the performing arts. We also participate in fundraising events for organizations such as the Madonna House of Neptune and the F.R.A., as well as families of the United States troops. We have also started raising money and awareness for less fortunate individuals with disabilities.
With the support of our volunteers and experienced staff, The Premier Theatre Company can go above and beyond the expectations and standards of theatre. The company has been hugely successful, and has flown through 30 straight seasons of exemplary entertainment.

Throughout our history, the Premier Theatre Company has maintained a strong connection with the communities in which we perform. We continue to believe in the wonderful opportunities Asbury Park has to offer everyone. When we were the resident company of the Algonquin Arts Theatre in Manasquan, we created many events in town. We continue to offer The Premier Experience, tying together merchants and restaurants who support our productions in Monmouth County.
We regularly make collections benefitting the underprivileged and the military.
