The Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Musical Theatre Conservatory "is a program of rigorous study allowing students to enhance their individual performance potential while developing a broad base of theater experience and knowledge," said the Playhouse. "Students participate in intensive classes including musical theater performance, acting, dance, and improvisation, while also attending guest workshops led by professional actors, directors, and casting agents."

The final weeks are devoted to rehearsals for the New Voices Concert, performed annually by the conservatory’s trained students.

"The Conservatory offers the unique opportunity for gifted and talented young performers to work at their own level, challenge themselves to achieve new goals, and learn new skills," said the organization. "Key to the curriculum is for the participants to develop self-discipline, respect, and a commitment to excellence that will serve these young artists throughout their lives. Many of the students from Paper Mill Playhouse’s Conservatory have gone on to appear on Broadway, in regional theater productions, in film and on television, including the likes of Anne Hathaway and Laura Benanti."
