The Paper Mill Playhouse Mission

White Chrismas

Paper Mill Playhouse preserves and nurtures the American Musical Theater art form and aspires to be a vital artistic and education center recognized throughout the region and the nation for its high-quality, innovative theatre and training programs.

The theater is committed to rediscovering and re-imagining classic musicals and plays, developing new musicals, training young and emerging artists, and ensuring that the theater is accessible to all.


We are Broadway in Your Own Backyard!

Paper Mill Playhouse, one of the country’s premier not-for-profit theaters, is the place where American musical theater is celebrated, cherished, and pushed in exciting new directions. The only difference between our theater and Broadway is our location — our state-of-the-art facility that rivals any theater on Broadway. With 1,200 seats and an enormous stage, our venue is designed for dazzling, larger-than-life productions. And our prime location attracts A-list stars, directors, composers, choreographers, and technicians. What you get at Paper Mill Playhouse is world-class artistry — men and women at the top of their craft, working together to make an experience our audience keeps in their hearts forever.
