MILLBURN, NJ - The East Coast premier of the Broadway-bound musical Half Time was held on Tuesday night at the Paper Mill Playhouse.

The stars of the production, most who are at least 60-years-old, delivered show stopping routines as their characters - all who love to dance - work towards their dream of performing at half time for a major basketball team. Only after making the cut do they learn they won’t be dancing tap, salsa or swing, but instead, they will be performing a style that is entirely new to them: hip-hop.

The new musical is based on the true story of ten New Jersey seniors, and on the motion picture Gotta Dance.
