On Stage at Rutgers Day 2016

Livingston Theater Company performs on the R Stage during Rutgers Day.

Music, dance and theater enthusiasts will find entertainment wherever they turn during Rutgers Day.

The Black Box Studio and Gordon Theater in Camden will host a series of short, 10- to 15-minute concerts by music and theater students – perfect for those with short attention spans. Symphony in C String Quartet, a professional training orchestra, will perform and fraternities and sororities will also entertain guests with traditional stepping and strolling. And don’t miss Richard Demirjian’s “interview” with Abraham Lincoln.

Enjoy performances on Voorhees Mall in New Brunswick by the Rutgers Children’s Choir and the Scarlet Singers at 11 a.m. and noon, respectively. Rutgers’ belly dance, ballroom and swing dance troupes will perform and teach guests some of their favorite choreography. The 42nd New Jersey Folk Festival will highlight Bluegrass music and feature Dark City Strings, Tony Trischka & Skyline, Dan O’Dea & Eagle Ridge among others.

The Newark performance stage will feature SASS Fusion Dance, Brick City Bhangra, Rutgers Hip Hop Operation, and The Ubuntu Theory. NJPAC’s Jazz for Teens will also play and musicians affiliated with the Institute of Jazz Studies will teach you to play a short tune. Celebrate two anniversaries – Rutgers’ 250th and Newark’s 350th – with historians dressed in colonial attire as they recount tales from the city’s Revolutionary War era.

Share all your fun using #RutgersDay on social media. You can also upload your photos using the Donate a Photo app; Johnson & Johnson will give $1 to Rutgers to support need-based scholarships for students in health care-related fields.
