WEST ORANGE, NJ - Luna Stage, located at 555 Valley Road in West Orange, is accepting applications for its adult and children's acting classes, and a whole lot more.

Qualifying Playwrights are encouraged to submit manuscripts for consideration.  The fall season is about to kick off with "The High Water Mark" by Ben Clawson:

"It’s 1:30 in the morning. Janet was asleep, but now she’s not because Lily has just barged in, a bit drunk and unexpected. Janet wants to go back to bed because she has work in the morning, but Lily has other plans. So wine is poured, old memories are revisited and secrets emerge as these two old friends navigate the night, middle-age and the roads that lie ahead."

Artistic Director Jane Mandel founded Luna Stage in 1992.  Jane's husband, Ken, is an integral member of the West Orange Film Society and West Orange Classic Film Festival.  Luna Stage has been an equity theater since 1995.  Formerly housed in Montclair and Bloomfield, Luna Stage moved to West Orange in 2010.  Luna Stage is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit corporation and a full member of the New Jersey Theatre Alliance.

Luna Stage receives support from the JP Morgan Chase Foundation, The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, HANDS, Inc., The New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Department of State/A Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, The Horizon Foundation of New Jersey, The Hyde and Watson Foundation, The Whitehill Foundation, and The Shubert Foundation.
