I’ve been capturing moments in theater photography for over 20 years. Last year was a tough time for Showkids Invitational Theatre as was the case for many in the arts.

Their first weekend was supposed to be outdoors on a stage in the parking lot of Church of the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately mother nature had other plans with rain and unseasonable cold temperatures.

They were fortunate to be able to find an indoor venue that permitted them to perform!

The second weekend did take place outdoors on their rented stage. Above is a very small example of some of the images captured.

Are you involved in a theater program or know someone that is that could use some professional portraits/ I provide the following services for theaters:

  • head shots or cast and crew
  • publicity photos for the show
  • performance photographs
  • performance video

Sound of Music Publicity Photography

New Jersey Theatre Photographer

SKIT’s “Sound of Music”

I created some publicity portraits for Showkids Invitational Theater’s show “Sound of Music.”

Theater like many of the Arts, was deeply impacted in the past 18 months by COVID-19. As you can see in the photograph above, some members of the cast who were too young to be vaccinated wore masks at times.

The above photographs were used to promote the show to local media outlets. The show was scheduled to take place on an outdoor stage at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Lebanon, NJ. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate the first weekend. Fortunately someone in the cast had a connection with the South Ridge Community Church in Clinton. They are blessed with a large indoor gathering place. The opening weekend shows where held there.

The above photographs are some of the seniors who, for them, was their last SKIT show!

Look for an upcoming posting of actual show photographs.
