With COVID-19 restrictions finally eased, the lights will be back up November 12 at Kelsey Theatre on the Mercer County Community College (MCCC) campus in West Windsor.

“It is our 49th season here at Kelsey, and I couldn’t be any happier right now,” said Kitty Getlik, artistic director. “The theater has been virtually dark since March 12, 2020 and I was only able to move a few special events indoors at the last minute this summer, but a full season of live indoor theater opens on November 12 and it can’t come fast enough.”

Upgrades during the time the theater was closed include new seats, new bathroom facilities, interior and exterior paint, new signage, and more.

Kelsey will open the 2021-2022 season as a benefit for the Pennington Players with the live musical revue “All Together Now – A Global Event” from Musical Theatre International (MTI). Performances are Friday, November 12 at 8 p.m. (with a special livestreaming option opening night) and Saturday, November 13 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the Kelsey stage. Pierrot Productions’ Moises Kaufman’s “33 Variations” will be performed starting November 19.

“We welcome back all of our Kelsey friends and family to our musical review and the other shows this season,” said Getlik. “It will be a grand reunion.”

Proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours is required at the door, and masks are required to be worn inside the theater. For more information, visit or call (609) 570-3333.
