I've always wanted to go to a show here but did not until this evening. Their productions are top notch and it does not entail a trip to NY. You can enjoy dinner and a show here for about 60-75% of the expenses to see a Broadway production, not to mention the savings on parking!

If you live nearby, you should take advantage of this great theatre. The shows this year were wonderful. Next year, it is 5 musicals; some new, some classics; one heading for Broadway. I just saw "Thoroughly Modern Millie". It was as great as the original which won awards on Broadway in 2002. The sets, costumes, orchestra, and actors are professional. In the past, I have bought tickets for my grandsons and family as holiday presents. This is a local treasure.

On our most recent visit, we saw The Sound of Music and wondered how it would be after seeing the film about 20+ times. Well, it was superb!!! The voices were excellent and the children were surprisingly fantastic. Don't know why I say surprising, but with only the film as a reference, it's a hard act to follow. Been there about 10 times and loved everything. Top notch performances in a delightful theater in a delightful town.

We like to expose our grandchildren to live, theatrical productions and Paper Mill Playhouse offerings are well-priced,amazingly done, and much more affordable than NYC, although several of their productions, most notably NEWSY, have made their way to Broadway. We have been subscribers for several years and always get a grandchildren's ticket as well. We treat them, one at a time, to all the offerings here, and emerge, not only well treated but with a great evening with our dear grandchildren as well.

What a great place! Children and adult shows. They have sensory friendly productions. Something for everyone. Easy parking. The downtown is one block away and is a pleasure to walk around in. Recharge your batteries!
