Paper Mill Playhouse (Mark S. Hoebee-Artistic Director, Mark W. Jones-Executive Director) is proud to announce the 2010-2011 season, the first time in 15 years the theater will produce an entire season of musicals. Hairspray opens the season aerosol style in September with its high-energy, show stopping dance numbers and a powerful message of love and acceptance. In November, the epic tale of the French Revolution is brought to life in Les Misérables. Brightening the winter season in January, Paper Mill Playhouse showcases adolescent overachievers in the hit musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Paper Mill Playhouse brings in the Spring with the legendary comedy A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. The 2010-2011 season closes with the musical-comedy, murder-mystery, Curtains. Investors Savings Bank is the proud sponsor of the 2010-2011 season.
"This collection of some of the most beloved titles in the American musical theater truly supports Paper Mill Playhouse's long standing legacy of producing the highest caliber theater for the widest audience possible," says Mark S. Hoebee, Artistic Director of the Millburn Theater.
"We are thrilled that we are able to offer a season of stylistically diverse musicals inspired by our commitment to entertainment for all ages," says Mark W. Jones, Paper Mill Playhouse's Executive Director. "Our many partnerships with both non-profit and commercial producers, as well as our corporate sponsors, foundations, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and individual donors allow us to produce superior quality theater here in Millburn."
