First and foremost we want to say THANK YOU to each and every one of our patrons from these past 10 years. From the early days in the church basement theatre...to the opening of the Waterfront South Theatre in 2010...to today...we pause and give thanks to the more than 25,000 patrons who have been moved by what they see on our stage. In the beginning so many said…"No one will come", but here we are in our second decade of theatre in Camden.
Season 11 features works written by John Guare, Tennessee Williams, Robert Berger/Patrick Daniels and Irving Gregory, along with the authors of the new works in our one-act festival.
The South Camden Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional theatre company dedicated to helping revitalize the City of Camden, New Jersey by producing meaningful, professional theater in the City’s Waterfront South District. Founded by a playwright, the South Camden Theatre Company stages seldom-seen, classic plays and original works as the resident theatre company at Waterfront South Theatre. South Camden Theatre Company is a proud member of The New Jersey Theatre Alliance, South Jersey Cultural Alliance, and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.
Situated just a block south of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, this gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt's Cafe, the corner bar, that once stood on the corner of Jasper Street and 4th Street.
Today, 96 seats and thousands of theatre patrons a year have replaced the bar stools and shipyard workers that at one time called this corner, "home".
Funding has been made possible in part by the Camden County Cultural & Heritage Commission at Camden County College, through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
