The surf light use to be a great place to go with families. However, keyword" use to be". This place has gone down hill drastically over the years. The tickets go up but the place it's self smells and the sound equipment is horrible. Don't waste your money on the surf light.

Lot of talent at this theatre. I have been there 2 times and it is great having this type of entertainment at the beach. They need the financial support to continue, so I encourage all to go and try it.

My husband, Michael, and I were in Friday night's audience for the "opening night" production of White Christmas at the Surflight Theatre on Long Beach Island, NJ. We had been hesitant to buy tickets for the first performance, preferring to wait until all of the kinks were worked out but it was the only night we could attend. We needn't... More

The children's plays are wonderful. My kids now age 17 have been going since they were 2. The plays are fairly tales with a twist and very entertaining for kids of any age. I have never been to an adult play but the kids plays are fantastic,

Saw Les Mis at Surflight. Enjoyed it a hundred times more than on Broadway. The theatre holds 450 so it's an intimate experience. No bad seat in the entire house. Lots going on there: Children's Theatre, Show Place Ice Cream Parlour and a whole bunch of very enthusiastic young professionals.

I've been going to the Surflight for years and I'm always impressed with the quality of the shows for a smaller, "summer stock" theater. They've extended their season to include Christmas shows and other specialty events which gives the area someplace to go to experience good theater and entertainment. I highly recommend the Surflight for any theater-goers from young children... More

Grew up going to Surflight when Surflight was a small summer theater in a converted garage. Now a larger theater and the quality of the performances outstanding. One might expect little community theater performances amateur performances (not criticism of those) but these are Professional quality often featuring broadway stars. I could not have anticipated a small theater company could do... More
