Nelson Hall Theatre – Performing Arts at Elim Park

Nelson Hall Theatre

The show’s still going on. Here is your quick peek at what is new at the theatre.

More than Music

Unforeseen challenges can bring new opportunities. The recent pandemic may have canceled the exciting line-up of shows at Nelson Hall Theatre temporarily – but it also provided an exciting new development to bring Elim Park TV to life! Recognizing how important it was for residents to stay connected, active, and engaged during this time of safety and precautions, Elim Park turned our 300-seat performing arts venue, Nelson Hall, into an on-site TV studio. From morning to evening, residents can tune in to our in-house channel for virtual fitness classes, game shows, smartphone tutorials, cooking demos, how-to’s on quilting and flower arranging, classic movies, musical entertainment – and much more!

Jazz Concert on Thursday, May 20th at 7PM.

The GCO brings to life the music of this bygone age with stunning authenticity and in 2017 the GCO was named “Best Group in New York” by the NYC Jazz Awards.  The band is an elite aggregation of some of the world’s most prominent vintage-jazz specialists. Their superlative musicianship and unbridled swing is fueled by each musician’s genuine love for playing pre-war jazz, making every performance one to remember.

Creativity at its finest.

Through EPTV, Nelson Hall Theatre has become a center for developing creative skills as Robin Cahill explores and experiments with different art forms each week. Residents have been featured center stage showcasing their talents and EPTV has also provided a wonderful venue for live updates from President and CEO, Brian Bedard, to keep everyone up-to-date and informed. Check out our Facebook feed to find some of these art creations on display.
