Admission to this event is free, so be certain to bring the whole family to support these up and coming artists.

If you do plan on attending, advanced registration is required. You can RSVP online here: Register – Summer Showcase. Instructions for registration are available in both English and Spanish. As this event is open to the public, all family, friends, and supporters are encouraged to come out and enjoy the films these students have spent all summer pouring their hearts and souls into. In addition to film, guests will also have the opportunity to hear from the JRH Foundation’s acting students, who have each selected a monologue to share with attendees on the night of the showcase.
Per Joseph Halsey, CEO of the JRH Foundation for the Arts, “This year is the second year of running the Summer Acting & Photography program here at JRH which has fully exceeded our expectations. We are so excited to showcase our student’s talents in the different fields of art along with the newest addition of the Photography español class, a program specifically for Non- English speaking students who have recently entered the United States.”
The James R. Halsey Foundation for the Arts is a Trenton-based non-profit committed to enriching the quality of life for regional youth through the arts and education. The JRH Foundation seeks to provide students aged 14-18 with a safe, nurturing environment to develop a love for the creative process. The Foundation strongly believes that the filmmaking process can be a therapeutic, transformative process which empowers participants to bridge the generational gap and break down socioeconomic barriers in the pursuit of this art form. JRH Foundation students will walk away with both an arts and business education, leaving them well-prepared for whatever journey lies ahead.
