Hoboken’s Mile Square Theatre Honors Its Founder

It’s one of Hudson County’s most popular theatre companies.  Hoboken’s Mile Square Theatre was founded twenty years ago as a professional, non-profit theatre by Chris O’Connor.  Its mission, according to its website says “is to enrich and engage the region through the production of professional theatre and innovative arts education.  MST produces professional theatre year round, including shows for young audiences and our annual festival of plays about baseball, 7th Inning Stretch.”

Over the weekend, the Mile Square Theatre honored O’Connor by naming its stage “The O’Connor Stage.”  O’Connor served as MST’s artistic director for 19 years.

            The naming ceremony was held on Saturday night prior to the final performance of 7th Inning Stretch.

The MST Dance Academy provides pre-professional dance training in ballet, contemporary, tap, theatre dance, flamenco and hip hop; classes run on an academic-year schedule.

MST Education provides workshops in acting and improvisation for all ages in spring and fall; offerings are designed to help students of all ages develop skills and technique.
