The New Jersey Ballet performs Ballet on Broadway; with the Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir: From Seven Brides for Seven Brothers to Kiss Me Kate, New Jersey Ballet presents some of Broadway’s most memorable dance sequences set to the music of Sondheim, Cole Porter, Bernstein and more!

The New Jersey Ballet then returns with their exciting double feature Peter and the Wolf/Beauty and the Beast.  The power of courage and kindness are at the heart of this delightful double feature.  Clever Peter and his friends dance to Prokofiev’s famous score and Beauty’s gentle ways turn the Beast into a handsome Prince.  Featuring original “storyteller” narration.

The New Jersey Ballet has thrilled audiences from Bergen to Cape May with top quality professional ballet and has given hundreds of thousands of adults and children their first introduction to ballet and inspired in many a lifelong love of the arts.  Over the years, New Jersey Ballet has brought the magic of dance theatre to countless students, little children, senior citizens and adults of all ages.  New Jersey Ballet performs a variety of works from classical, contemporary and jazz ballet throughout the state, and has toured nationally and around the world.

The award-winning Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir consists of young performing artists ages 16-22. Over the last two seasons, the choir reached more than 100,000 people with performances throughout the state with their rousing renditions of Broadway, pop and classics
