Shea Center for the Performing Arts

The Shea Center, a fully equipped performance space, is available for rentals, meetings, concerts, lectures, dance recitals, and other performances.  Rentals include use of our computerized lighting system and custom sound systems, as well as our professional and highly regarded stage crew and other personnel.  Shea Auditorium can seat 922, and features a unique open stage that provides excellent sight lines for the entire audience.  Our team can help you with every detail of planning your event, from tech support to catering.  We have the answers! 

The flexible seating in the Hunziker Black box Theatre (HBBT), located just across the plaza from the Shea Center, is your choice for intimate theatre productions, small meetings, or other informal events.  The HBBT can be configured for theatre-in-the round, ¾ thrust, or most any design you desire.  Its 80-seat maximum capacity is just right for smaller events with a less formal style.  Rental includes use of the computerized lighting system and a small sound system, as well as our aforementioned crew. 

For your convenience, our Box Office can sell tickets for your event, and provide a full accounting of your ticket sales.  If you prefer, you can choose to have us print your tickets for you to sell at your location.  Our well-trained Front-of-House staff will handle your customers’ needs efficiently and professionally, and make them feel welcome and comfortable.

Experience the difference our people can make!  Call the Shea Center Operations Office at 973-720-2384 to find out more.  We’ll be happy to discuss available dates and pricing and to arrange a tour of our facilities.
