Our Gang's Peter Pan

Help us raise money for August's Peter Pan performances

We're part of an amazing campaign called the OceanFirst Charity Challenge. The Challenge runs through May 9th and the charity that raises the most for their cause during that time frame will get a grand prize of $10,000 from OceanFirst Foundation. To win would mean so much to our cause so we're out to make it happen.

And right now, as an extra bonus, if we raise at least $250 by April 22nd at 12pm ET, we'll be entered to win an extra $500 grant for our cause. We could really use your support to win and any donation, large or small, can make all the difference so please give what you can.

We'll be messaging quite a bit over the course of the campaign so thanks in advance for all your support. You're amazing. Please Click Here and give what you can. And, if you have any questions, please Email Crowdrise and they'll be ready to dig in. 

Thanks so much,
Stacey Schnepp-Stoops, OGP

Season 36's finale

Our Gang's "Cabaret"


Our Gang returned to our "second home" at the Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven to perform four shows in October 2013, directed by Our Gang's Perry Award-winning Jessica O'Brien. Stunning songs, fascinating characters, and a compelling storyline, Cabaret is set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power. The story focuses on nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.
