"Our mission is to create a professional theatre experience for local area performers, audience members, students and volunteers while providing a broad range of musical theatre works with the highest possible production value."
PLEASANT VALLEY PRODUCTIONS was formed in 2012 as a West Orange based independent not-for-profit community theatre company by local theatre veterans, Camille Vecchio-DiLorenzo, Ilene Greenbaum, and Howie Tilkin. Our mission is to create a professional theatre experience for local area performers, audience members, students and volunteers while providing a broad range of musical theatre works with the highest possible production value.
In keeping with our mission, PVP maintains a firm dedication to arts education along with a fervent belief in its importance. The positive effects of an exposure to arts education on the lives of young people are transformative and innurmerable, especially when begun at an early age. We are proud, therefore, to once again offer a free after-school Musical Theatre Enrichment program at Roosevelt Middle School in West Orange this fall. This program gives 7th and 8th graders an opportunity to experience the world of live theatre from auditions through rehearsals and culminates in a performance for family and friends. Starting this fall, PVP is expanding this education program by partnering with Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy/Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School by offering a similar program for students of all ages.
Since its inception, Pleasant Valley Productions has presented a number of acclaimed community theatre shows in the area with productions of Songs for A New World, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream, a sold-out production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a celebrated production of Ragtime, and most recently a production of Stephen Sondheim's Company at Luna Stage this past summer. We continue to grow our company's presence in the community by offering free concerts at the West Orange Public Library and actively participating in local community events.
