The Holidays are a wonderful  chance to get together with friends and family to do a little local shopping,  see a holiday movie, live show, or even little imbibing!

One of the best places to do all of that under one roof is the Hackensack Meridian Health Theater at the Basie Center for the Arts. The non profit Count Basie Center for the Arts is New Jersey’s premier center for the cultural arts, dedicated to fostering powerful, inclusive artistic experiences and creative exchange of ideas.

The Basie does more than just entertain.

According to it’s mission statement on the website www.thebasie.org , the Basie mission is to inspire, educate and entertain through its distinct and engaging cultural and artistic offerings that embrace and amplify the diversity of the region.  As a nonprofit organization, the Basie is committed to enriching the community’s quality of life by generating opportunities for participation in the arts, partnering with schools, collaborating with other mission-based organizations and driving regional economic prosperity.

A trip to the Basie can be just the thing to put you into that Holiday Spirit!

Imagine, a stroll down chilly Broad street in Red Bank, then you turn onto Monmouth street and see that shining marquee, you know it’s time for fun! This holiday however, you may be surprised the vast array of Holiday entertainment and events going on both onstage and off on the Basie properties. From concerts, to films. Children’s shows, to wine sipping adventures. A Christmas Marketplace and more all await you this December, as Red Bank comes alive for the Holidays, and the Hackensack Meridian Theater at the Basie Center for the Arts becomes the center of the entertainment universe for Monmouth County residents and their friends and family. So find a show or event, grab your tickets, and grab the season by the antlers!
