Event series aims to introduce locals to Newark’s hidden gems
When 60 people attended The Newark Partnership’s “Knowing Newark” event at the Chapel Street Playhouse on Tuesday, a show of hands demonstrated that a third to a half had never set foot inside the theater before. By the time they left, however, they all knew more about the storied, all-volunteer theater company, as well as other arts organizations in Newark. “We’re trying to introduce people to things you’d think they would know about but they don’t,” said Paul Keely, co-chair of TNP’s civic engagement committee.
Tuesday’s event was the second in the monthly Knowing Newark series, which aims to introduce Newarkers to the city’s “hidden gems” – civic and cultural institutions that have dedicated fan bases but might be unknown to other residents.
