"Clean Slate" Marks a Fresh Start With World Premiere in Trenton, NJ

A rehabilitation camp for disaffected teens, a haunted wood plagued by lost souls, and a path to redemption for all — this is but a taste of the upcoming musical “Clean Slate.”

A co-production from Passage Theatre and Rider University, the musical will mark its world premiere in the Garden State. 

A story of radical empathy, the piece explores the need to remember who we used to be in order to move forward. 

Jersey Arts visits Rider University to speak to the creative team behind “Clean Slate,” which will run its encore performance at the Mill Hill Playhouse in Trenton March 10-12.
