Hopewell Theater plans reopening on fourth anniversary


Hopewell Theater plans to reopen Sept. 7, after more than a year, on the anniversary of its first opening, four years ago, in 2017.

With the lifting of capacity and social distancing restrictions in New Jersey, the theater is now able to sell shows at full capacity, which is what it need for those shows to be financially viable.

“To celebrate our anniversary and our reemergence from the long pandemic shutdown, we will hold a special event performance that week – headliner to be announced – for our dedicated members, press, and special local guests,” Sara Scully, executive director and co-founder, said via email.

“On Sept. 15, the selectively eclectic programming our patrons have come to expect at HT will resume! Get ready for an array of live music, live performance, comedy shows, and film screenings to go on sale in the coming month for the fall season.”

Scully also thanked patrons for their loyalty and support of the theater, located at 5. S Greenwood Ave., Hopewell, N.J., and their help advocating for state and federal relief funding.
