Group Sales

Be the first to glimpse tomorrow’s stars.

Season after season, up-and-coming artists grace Mason Gross stages and galleries in a wide variety of events. Patrons enjoy the visceral power of a theatrical production, the energy of jazz, the raw grace of modern dance, and the sophistication of classical music.

Mason Gross School of the Arts is the professional arts conservatory of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Top professionals in art & design, dance, theater, and music train our artists and often collaborate with them in public performances and exhibitions. Among notable Mason Gross School alumni are Kristin Davis (Sex and the City), Roger Bart (The Producers, Desperate Housewives), Sebastian Stan (Captain America, Broadway's Talk Radio) Qiang Tu (New York Philharmonic), Sean Jones (former first trumpet, Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra), Cleo Mack (artistic director, Cleo Mack Dance Project), and Joan Snyder (painter and printmaker).
