I went with a senior bus group here on a Saturday. We saw a very funny matinee. The town is quaint and theater is small enough were every seat is great. Will return soon.

We have been season subscribers for a number of years and each season is better than the last. Don’t miss Half Time. It’s a real treat. We are fortunate to have the Papermill so close to where we live.

The shows are always comparable to the best theaters anywhere. Prices are reasonable, and there is a nice atmosphere of a local meeting place. We are holding season tickets for several years now, and are almost always delighted with the show.

There is no dress code. Feel free to wear whatever you want. Some people wear jeans and sneakers, others a little dressier. Few people wear suits and fancy dresses.
