For the first time, Two River Theater is offering theater classes specifically designed for students on the autism spectrum, giving them the opportunity to “explore the arts in a theatrical way,” Cardaro states.
These classes are led by teaching artists with extensive experience and supported by several assistants. Students improve interpersonal communication, verbal and body awareness, and self-confidence through the art of theater.
Two River Theater cultivates a new generation of theatergoers through innovative arts education programs that introduce young people to the theater and create opportunities for them to engage with renowned theater artists.
By now, you have seen the heartbreaking devastation Hurricane Harvey left in Texas. According to the National Weather Service, Harvey has set a record for total rainfall from a single tropical cyclone in the continental United States– a mind-blowing 48 inches has fallen so far, with more to come.
Here in New Jersey, there are many ways to help our brothers and sisters across the country. Here are a few ways to get involved with some kind-hearted Garden State initiatives:

New Jersey dispatched 16 of its Task Force 1 members on Sunday, as well as three New Jersey State Police personnel, according to Laura Connolly, spokeswoman for the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management.
Marino got Up Close and Personal with the crowd, proving why he is called New Jersey’s Bad Boy. A fan commented on Facebook, “Loved your show at the Paramount Saturday! You were awesome. My husband and I had tears in our eyes!”
“I just want to do a shout out and welcome to the stage with me MC/DJ Adam J,” Marino stated in a post on his official Facebook page. Adam J hosted both sold-out shows.
Marino was born in Jersey City. He entered the entertainment industry at an early age and has appeared in over 200 national television commercials. Much success came from a web series titled “Marino 2016,” which chronicled his “run” for President of the United States.
If you want to see this hilarious Garden State native yourself, Marino has another NJ show at the Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven on August 7th. Get your tickets here.
