Upcoming Events...

Ongoing Theater and Concerts

Centenary Stage Company, Hackettstown

February 15-March 3 • AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. Henrik Ibsen’s play follows Doctor Thomas Stockmann, who discovers dangerous water pollution in the Springs, a highly anticipated resort that recently opened in his Norwegian town. In Tom's mind, the path to a solution is clear: inform the public and close the resort to prevent a crisis. With clear present-day relevance, this high-intensity drama is a powerful investigation of ambition, integrity and the price we pay for the truth.
