Ideal Location

SOPAC is only steps away from the NJ Transit station, and a 35-minute ride from New York City on the midtown direct train leaving from Penn Station. Your cast and crew will enjoy the stores, restaurants and charm of the Village of South Orange.

The upscale suburban atmosphere, and modern facilities offer an attractive and affordable alternative to rehearsal studios in Manhattan.

Past Clients

The Dodgers, Paper Mill Playhouse, Midtown Direct Rep and many other companies have all taken advantage of the convenience and facilities at the South Orange Performing Arts Center.

SOPAC makes for a compelling and affordable alternative to cramped rehearsal studios in Manhattan. In developing new works, its unique blend of privacy and first-class facilities offered us a convenient and creative environment to work. It is rare to find these resources so close to the city.- Jeff Parvin, Production Manager, Dodger Properties, LLC
