The Kelsey Theatre at MCCC is your community resource for the arts in Central New Jersey, now in its 46th season. Conveniently located on the West Windsor Campus of Mercer County Community college, The Kelsey Theatre’s mission is to enrich and uplift local residents through affordable, high-quality theater productions, arts education programs, and performance opportunities. We design these programs to support and entertain them from cradle to career and beyond so their interest in the arts may evolve into a life-long passion.
Our theater productions feature the work of 11 different resident semi-professional theater companies, plus a student company. Together we put together a season featuring something for everyone, from musicals to comedies and dramas, from classics to contemporary, from family fare to offerings that are a tad more risque. Keeping the price affordable for the average person is very important to Kelsey Theatre, so no ticket price is over $30.
All of our musicals utilize live orchestras, which in the upcoming season include “The Sound of Music,” “Catch Me If You Can,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Scrooge,” “Cabaret,” “Parade,” “If/Then,” “13, The Musical,” “A Gentlemen’s Guide To Love and Murder,” “Evita,” “Oliver,” and “Mamma Mia,” and comedies and dramas which include “Leading Ladies,” “Calendar Girls,” “12 Angry Men,” “The Last of The Red Hot Lovers,” “33 Variations,” and “Two Gentlemen of Verona.”
