Roxbury Arts Alliance

The Roxbury Arts Alliance is a volunteer group that has been promoting the arts in and around Roxbury Township, New Jersey since 1997. What began with occasional performances in coffee houses and local houses of worship by several parents of Roxbury High School students has evolved into year-round programming, classes, and performances. In 2009, we opened The Investors Bank Theater, now home to the Roxbury Performing Arts Center.

Our electricity and rent costs are supported by the town. All of our programming, theater upkeep and repairs are paid for by the RAA through grants, donations, volunteers and public & private supporters.

Throughout the years, we have been home to a variety of artistic endeavors, including:

  • Music Performances
  • Poetry Festivals
  • Comedy Revues
  • Free Summer Concerts, Outdoor in the Band Shell
  • Violin Recitals
  • Songwriter Guild Open Mic Nights
  • Preschool Graduations
  • Multi-Chamber of Commerce Meetings
  • Ongoing Art Displays
  • Radio Shows
  • Children’s Entertainers and Shows
  • Comedy and Drama Performances

The RAA is home to amateur and professional artists alike. While we strive to offer family entertainment with renowned acts at the Roxbury Performing Arts Center, the majority of what we do is offer families and their children opportunities to learn about the arts and a venue to see live performances.

But we don’t stop there. We want to share our passion and our mission, therefore we often serve as consultants in support of other events in Roxbury, and we work with other organizations to promote an appreciation in the arts throughout Morris County.

The Roxbury Arts Alliance is a 501(c) (3), non-profit organization. Donate today.

2. Theater Alliance Program – we work with regional theater groups to bring performances to Roxbury township.

3. Acting/Comedy/Dancing Classes & Workshops – teachers work with all ages to help people learn the joy of performing.

4. Family Entertainment Events – concerts and performances that appeal to all age groups.

Roxbury Arts Alliance Scholarship

The Roxbury Arts Alliance continues to support arts, both visual and performing, in our townships public schools. The Roxbury Arts Alliance actively supports the Roxbury Band, Choir, and Dance Programs at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. The RAA is a large supporter of our home-grown talent.

Through the Art Association of Roxbury, we offer an on-going “art show,” a rotating displaying of artwork by local student and artists that lines the halls of our building.

Since 1998 the Roxbury Arts Alliance Scholarship has been awarded to one or more graduating Roxbury High School students who have demonstrated outstanding abilities in one or more areas of the arts such as music, dance, literature or visual arts.

Congratulations to Paul Kemmerer & Zachary Solano as the 2021 Roxbury Arts Alliance Scholarship Recipients
