Our 2021 Season of live theatre has been interrupted by a non-Covid related issue.
We are very sorry to have had to cancel Daphne’s Dive and postpone The Brothers Size. These decisions were not easy for us given the time we’ve been away from producing live and in-person productions.
Watch for our return to the stage in February of 2022 with a full season of live and in-person theatre productions for your enjoyment.
Thank you for your patience, and please support theatre and the arts in Camden.
Check out our PAST PRODUCTIONS page to see the work we’ve been bringing to our stage.

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre
The Waterfront South Theatre, located just a block west of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the historic Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, is the first theatre built in Camden, New Jersey in more than 100 years. This gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt’s Cafe, the bar, that once stood on this corner until 1967. Thanks to the Heart of Camden, The Domenica Foundation, Ignarri Lummis Architects, and others, this grand space has been home to South Camden Theatre Company since the fall of 2010.
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 of Camden “home”.
