ABOUT OUR HONOREES…
Gladys and Perry Rosenstein are the founders of the Puffin Foundation Ltd., located in Teaneck, where the Rosensteins now reside. The Foundation is dedicated to “…continuing the dialogue between art and lives of ordinary people.” It seeks to promote economic and class equality in a world of peace. It provides grants to emerging artists in music, dance, theater, photography, video and literature, who, because they challenge existing injustices, might otherwise not have the opportunity to exhibit their work. The Foundation has grown from awarding 18 grants in its first year to over 340. Recipients of Puffin include; afterschool programs in Teaneck; a mutual photo exhibit and dialogue between Palestinian and Israeli youth; and the beautiful green space, The Teaneck Creek Conservancy; and of course, the Garage Theatre Group.

The Garage Theatre Group believes in the power of theatre as a tool for growth, understanding, and communication. Our aim is to use the process of theatre, as well as the product, to educate, inform, and connect the community in which we live.
The shows that comprise The Garage Theatre Group season are challenging as well as entertaining, reflecting our belief that theatre is an open dialogue between the playwright, the performer, and the audience.
At the conclusion of each Main Stage performance, a discussion with the cast, director, and audience is held. By doing so, we hope to inspire and create a new generation of artists, theatregoers, and patrons.
