The Camden FireWorks, an artist loft space & gallery, The Camden Shipyard and Maritime Museum, Brigid’s House and the Nick Virgilio Writers House along with the existing artist studio of Mickey McGrath’s BeeStill Studios, and Camden’s Center For Environmental Transformation, and the Heart Of Camden‘s, Michael J. Doyle Field House, and the Camden Sophisticated Sisters, you’ll find plenty of art, theatre, history, gardening and more in the Waterfront South Arts neighborhood.
Together we are building a strong community of arts, culture, and family life here in our Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden.

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre
The Waterfront South Theatre, located just a block west of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the 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 up 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”.
