The primary mission of the Count Basie Theatre is to serve the people of the State of New Jersey by providing a broad spectrum of quality entertainment and education programs that reflect and celebrate the diversity of the region; foster understanding and appreciation for the ennobling power of the performing arts; and create opportunity for cultural enrichment for people at all economic levels. It also is our mission to develop and maintain a world-class venue that enhances the enjoyment of these entertainment and education programs; contributes to the cultural and economic vitality of the community and the region; and honors the memory of Count Basie.
Count Basie Theatre programming and education outreach is made possible, in part, by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts / Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as support received from major donors and numerous corporations, foundations, and individuals.
