Princeton Summer Theater

A "fascinating arts community that emerges, every summer, in our own backyard."
-- Jonathan Elliott, U.S.1

BY CAR

From the North/East

From the New Jersey Turnpike heading south, take Exit 9 (New Brunswick) and follow signs for Trenton (Route 18 north, then Route 1 south). For first-timers, navigating to Route 1 south from this exit can be difficult. Take the first right after the toll booths, up the ramp and onto to 18 north. Immediately, shift to lane second from left and, less than half a mile from entry point, exit left (you'll be heading over a Route 1 overpass). Stay in right lane the exit to Route 1 south is on your right just beyond the overpass. For directions to campus and parking from Route 1, see below.

From the South/West

From Interstate 95 heading north from DC/Philadelphia, cross Scudder Falls Bridge into New Jersey (Interstate 95 becomes Interstate 295 several miles into NJ), and exit at Route 1 North (exit 67). For directions to campus and parking from Route 1, see below.

From I-95/206 North

Another option from I-95 North is Route 206 North. Following Route 206 North, travel through Lawrenceville to Princeton. Where Route 206 meets Route 27, head right onto Nassau Street, the town's main street. If you are coming from southern New Jersey, we recommend that you take I-295 North (instead of the NJ Turnpike), exiting at Route 1 North.

From Route 1 (North or South)

Exit at Washington Road (Route 571). If traveling on Route 1 North, make a left onto Washington Road; if traveling on Route 1 South, make a right onto Washington Road. Continue on Washington Road over a bridge, through one light, up a hill, and through two more lights. The next light is the intersection of Washington Road and Nassau St. (Route 27).

 

PARKING

There is generally no parking available on the Princeton campus. Free off-campus parking near the theater is available in the parking lot behind 185 Nassau Street after 5pm and on weekends. Parking on Williams Street is metered from the morning until 7pm all days except Sunday.
