This popular annual sale features one-of-a-kind items from the theater’s prop, costume, and scenery stock, including masks, costumes and  fabric remnants. 

Looking for a costume no one else will have? How about some knee-high cavalier boots? Have no fear, the Bard is here. Rather the stuff the creative people who mount the plays (written 500 years ago through today) made for the stage will be making many of those items available to us. All items are priced to sell.

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey will hold its Costume, Prop, and Scenery Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24 at the theater’s production facility at 3 Vreeland Road in Florham Park.  Admission and parking are free.

For more information, call 973-408-5600. The sale will be held at the Theatre’s administration/production facility, 3 Vreeland Road, Florham Park.

NOTE: The sale originally was to run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m but has been pushed back to 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
