Sundog Theatre Presents “Ellis Island: Gateway To A Dream”

(NEWTON, NJ) — During the months of March and April 2016, Sundog Theatre will perform Ellis Island: Gateway to a Dream, a one-hour musical about the historical journey of new immigrants through Ellis Island to students in New Jersey & New York.  The performance comes to the Newton Theatre on April 6.  Many school districts from throughout the area have been invited to attend the performance.

“Ellis Island is a significant project for students to learn about differences in past and present. Our goal at Sundog is to provide students with a memorable experience about history and individual strength," said Susan Fenley, Executive Director.

The program is sponsored, in part, by public funding from NYC Department of Cultural Affairs & the City Council, specifically Council Members Steven Matteo and Joseph Borelli.

The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, NJ.


Formed in 2002, Sundog Theatre presents original and contemporary theatre on Staten Island. The arts company focuses on theatre in diverse venues, programs for schools, acting lessons for youth and touring productions throughout the year.
