To Our Loyal Fans,
Shore Thing Theater and CSz Jersey Shore is closed until we have a clear directive on how to gather safely. When the recommendations came through for large venues to close, fans, students and players connected with us to see if we would stay open. We thought about it and after we were able to assure that we could faithfully introduce measures that went beyond the recommendations at the time, we committed to it. We limited the seating, cleaned, wiped everything down, prepared everyone on proper cleaning procedures – gave them the option to not be there, and we stayed open. We finished our last week of classes and we did our Saturday match. It was a minimum attendance and spread out, but both the actletes and families that came were so happy to have been there. And THAT is why we have closed. As COVID-19 continues to spread and shows no signs of letting up, we now must do what we think is in the best interest of our loyal fans, actors and students…. and close.
We will be working remotely to help any loyal fans who have already purchased tickets and we will be postponing the start of our Spring classes. If you have any questions you can call 732-508-0807 or email Ria at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a difficult time and it is going to severely affect not only ComedySportz Jersey Shore but our parent, Shore Thing Theater as well as the entire arts community. If you are in a position to donate to our non-profit theater at this time of closure, it couldn’t come at a better time. If you are one of the families whose income will be impacted greatly during this time, please know that our hearts go out to you. When the theater is up and running again we will be providing free shows and classes to those who cannot afford them due to hardship.
No one should ever have to skimp on laughter or community.
Finally, we borrow this sentiment directly from our family at CSz Chicago, because they put it so perfectly. “We love our loyal fans, we love our players and staff and we love what we do. We look forward to when we can re-open our doors and start doing comedy for everyone again. But until that time – wash your hands, make each other laugh and mind the brown bag foul.”

Where you belong
Welcome to the Shore Thing Theater, we’re glad you found us! Located inside the Jersey Shore Arts Center, we are the only brick-and-mortar improv training facility and performance space for our area.
We firmly believe that improvisation is a valuable tool for enriching all areas of your life. If you are uncomfortable with public speaking or have difficulty navigating social situations, class with us will give you more confidence. For youths and teens, this is an opportunity to enhance performance skills, escape the screens and make new friends. For adults, it is a judgement-free zone to step back into the world of make-believe and unlock creativity. For anyone in the performing arts it is useful to add improvisation skills to your tool belt, especially for the audition and rehearsal process.
Whether you are looking to perform professionally, or just want something fun to do on a Saturday night, we’ve got you covered!
