Amy Hadam is Cape May Stage’s Production Stage Manager, but she has been teaching dance and theatre for over a decade. Her love for theatre education began in high school when she participated in a program called Social Issues Theatre where she and her classmates toured an anti-bullying piece to the elementary schools in her school district. Amy attended Kean University where she earned her B.A. in Theatre Education with a K-12 Teacher Certification for the State of New Jersey.

Amy was also the choreographer for Pequannock Township High School's productions of Godspell, Legally Blonde, and 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. She is so excited to have been given the opportunity to develop the education program here at Cape May Stage!

Amy's Education Philosophies:

“Art Education is an opportunity to nurture children to find truth through imagination, effort, collaboration, and cultural literacy.”


Cape May Stage has always strived to produce thought-provoking theatre to the Cape May community; Cape May Stage for Kids is striving to create original thought-provoking theatre and inspire the next generation of artists.


We are doing so by:

  • Welcoming all students to use their imaginations and accept all creative input
  • Encouraging ensemble building and team work
  • Challenging students to think critically about themes and topics and express their understanding through multiple
  • Creative approaches
  • Implementing discipline, patience, and open-mindedness that comes with studying an art form

Come grow and create with us!
