Sixty years since it debuted on Broadway, Fiddler on the Roof remains a worldwide phenomenon and one of the most celebrated musicals of all time, performed in no fewer than 16 languages in no fewer than 32 countries. The winner of nine Tony Awards, Fiddler retells the story of a Jewish family, holding strong to its traditions and faith in the face of changing times and the anti-Semitism of czarist Russia.
March 8 – 24, 2024
The Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece Sunday in the Park with George, written by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, is regarded as one of the most acclaimed musicals of all time. The 1984 musical, which originally starred Bernadette Peters and Mandy Patinkin, was inspired by the French pointillist painter Georges Seurat's painting A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.
May 31 – June 16, 2024
Evita is the smash pop opera about Eva Peron, a desperately driven woman who went from the streets of Buenos Aires to international celebrity to the highest levels of influence in Argentina. Both saint and a villain, Eva Peron rose from poverty to power and prosperity, and her passionate story is the stuff of the most energized dramatic musical of our time.
Groups of 10 or more are welcome to experience professional musicals and concerts at the beautiful Axelrod theater. The Axelrod PAC is the newest professional theater in New Jersey, and our patrons rave over the value of seeing the best musical-theater productions on the Jersey Shore at reasonable prices. The Group ticket prices simply cannot be beaten!
Adult Group Tickets start as low as $40. Certain shows offer Student Group Tickets as low as $28. Groups that book early receive the best possible seats in the house.
Dare I ask about theater etiquette?Emily Post could very well be seated two rows behind you, so let’s cover some basic etiquette for the theater. Audience members have to respect not only their fellow patrons who have also purchased tickets to see the show but also the performers on the stage. Remember: if it’s not a film, the actors can hear and see you! Theatergoers who talk during a performance will distract actors onstage as well as Ms. Post in Row C. Lights from cell phones are equally annoying and (most likely) unnecessary. Please turn off cell phones prior to all performances. If you’re a doctor on call, silence it. If—heaven help you—your cell phone rings in the theater, silence it immediately: do not answer it and say “I can’t talk right now, these people in the theater are staring at me!” If you think you’re going to need a cough drop or hard candy, please unwrap it before the performance. In the heightened silence of a dramatic moment, crinkling cellophane can disrupt the entire room. So, do your very best to not talk and to keep young (or young at heart) theatergoers quiet. If another patron is being disruptive, please seek out an usher to intervene. The house staff is available throughout the performance to assist patrons and to ensure that everyone enjoys the show.
What is the COVID Refund Policy?Axelrod PAC is currently offering ticket exchanges until 24 hours prior to showtime.
Is there a theater dress code?Patrons should dress neat casual: comfortable but tidy. Gala concerts are a bit more fancy, of course.
May I bring my toddler with me to the theater?The Axelrod PAC does not permit children under four years old in the theater (unless it’s a children’s show). Toddlers or infants may not sit on the laps of their parents.
Are there fees attached to purchasing tickets?There is a $3.50 Facility Fee per ticket and $3.50 Convenience Charge for Credit Card purchases via web, box office, or phone. There is no Convvenience Charge for Check or Cash payments at the Box Office.
What should I do if I’ve misplaced my ticket or forgotten to print it out at home?The box office staff will be happy to reprint your ticket. Be sure to bring a valid photo ID.
Will the show be cancelled due to snow or bad weather?As the old adage says, “The show must go on!” The Axelrod PAC will do everything possible not to cancel performances. If you are fearful of weathering a storm to get to the show, call the box office prior to the show and arrange an exchange. Remember, exchanges after a show date are not possible.
What is the cost of a ticket?Ticket prices vary from show to show, though the Axelrod PAC works very hard to keep the price of tickets as low as possible. For comparable professional musical theater, the Axelrod PAC prices are significantly less than other NJ theatres. As with all things in life, prices are subject to change. During this period the APAC is offering full refunds/exchanges through the day of show.
What are the box office hours?APAC Box Office hours are M-F 10 am - 1 pm and 2 hours prior to all showtimes.
What is the exchange or refund policy of the theater?For patrons who cannot attend a show for which they’ve purchased tickets, exchanges are available for a future show credit. Exchanges must be arranged 24 hours prior to the performance for which patron has purchased tickets. No exchanges are granted after scheduled show date. There are no charges for exchanges. All sales are final. Ticket purchased cannot be refunded.
May I take photos or videos during a show?Photography and videography are strictly prohibited at all performances.
