Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey To Honor Richard B. McGlynn At 2018 Gala

(MADISON, NJ) --  The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey launches its 56th season with their 2018 Annual Gala on Saturday, April 7, 2018. The Theatre will present its rarely bestowed Mighty Quill Award to longtime Board member Richard B. McGlynn at the annual event. Patrons, artists, and community leaders are invited to join the festivities at the Theatre’s renovated theatre factory that will be transformed into a “Grand Ballroom.” In addition to a star-studded cabaret, guests will be able to bid on scores of silent auction offerings that include relaxing getaways, exclusive tickets to Broadway shows, and unique behind-the-scenes experiences. 

Thomas Keffer, President of the Board of Trustees, said, “Rich McGlynn has been a giant in the history of this Theatre. Behind the scenes, he has worked tirelessly to lift us up by attracting trustees and funding. At our shows, he is always front and center, the first to laugh and the loudest to applaud. He is a true champion of the art.”

Mr. McGlynn has served on The Shakespeare Theatre’s Board of Trustees for almost four decades. “I’m deeply honored to receive the Mighty Quill award. My longtime association with STNJ has brought hours of great theatre, and the joy of working with so many people who make STNJ a rare gem in New Jersey’s cultural crown,” said Mr. McGlynn of the honor.

“Without Rich McGlynn, our audiences, our students, our artists, and the state of New Jersey would all be lacking, for through his decades of service, he has truly been one of the forces that has kept this institution alive and moving forward and upward,” saidArtistic Director Bonnie J. Monte. “He is our history, our passionate advocate, and a patron of the arts of the highest degree.”

This year’s Gala will include the annual popular Cabaret performance that features luminaries from the world of Broadway, film and television, many of whom are Shakespeare Theatre company members. Performers will be announced soon.
