The Campaign To Save Paper Mill Playhouse

April 4th, 2007

Campbell Robertson of the New York Times reports that the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ, one of the premier nonprofit theaters in the region, may close its doors because of a $1.5 million shortfall. From Jersey Boys, Paper Mill Playhouse alums John Lloyd Young and swing cast member Matthew Scott are helping to save the theatre.

The theatre is reaching deep into a talent pool of actors who have passed through Paper Mill, asking them to participate in a fund-raising performance being planned at the theater on Monday night. State officials and such Broadway stars as John Lloyd Young of the hit Jersey Boys are among those being invited.

You can save this theatre by making a generous tax-deductible donation online at this site: http://www.papermill.org/support/annualfund.php,
or by calling 973.379.3636.

  1. I was sorry to learn that this wonderful institution is in danger of closing. The productions at The Papermill have always been consistently high caliber, with amazing performers. Growing up nearby, The Papermill was part of our family life, and helped instill a lifelong love of theatre. We should all make an effort to keep it alive.
