For nearly 90 years, The Radburn Players have been bringing quality musicals, dramas, and comedies to Northern New Jersey.

What started out in the boardroom of the Fair Lawn’s historic Plaza Building on January 2, 1930 has flourished into one of the longest-running community theaters in New Jersey. Since 1930 our stage has never gone dark with over 250 shows staged overall.  The Radburn Players of Fair Lawn have always produced the highest quality of theater and in 2018 were awarded “Outstanding Original Musical” by NJACT for AUDITIONS: THE MUSICAL REVIEW, written by Laura Belle, directed by Amy Sellars. Our audiences laughed until they cried during THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED), shed a tear during our performance of CHAPTER TWO, and were riveted by the musical mastery of MAN OF LA MANCHA.

But none of this could happen without the financial support of our community.

Corporate financial support and personal charitable donations ensures that our historic cultural asset continues in the twenty-first century. Donations to our accredited 501(c)(3) non-profit organization are tax deductible and will help us meet our fundraising goal to purchase new light and sound equipment for the theater.

To make a charitable donation, please email us at, or call us at 201-873-5570. You may also make a charitable donation at our box office at any scheduled performance.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support!
