See What's Coming Up In January at the Paper Mill Playhouse
Friends of Paper Mill Playhouse,
Year! We hope that you had a wonderful holiday and that
you were able to safely connect with friends and family. Although
this wasn’t the holiday season that any of us expected, we
think one important lesson we have learned during this past
year is that we must cherish our loved ones and
celebrate those relationships whenever we can.
We hope you enjoyed our
production of Sing in a New Year! It was so exciting
to be back on the Paper Mill stage creating theater again with
some of our most talented friends. The feedback we have received from
our subscribers has been overwhelming and we were happy to be able
to bring a bit of song and joy right into their homes.
We are thrilled to
announce a new partnership between Paper Mill Playhouse and the New
Jersey Symphony Orchestra. Once we are able to return to live
performance, Paper Mill vocalists will join the NJSO in concert events
that we plan to bring to venues across the state.
In the meantime, we
are working on a four-part series of video performances. The first,
which premiered last week, features Rema Webb (Unmasked, Sing
in a New Year!) singing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel.

Future performances will include Belinda Allyn and Matt Doyle reuniting
to sing “Tonight” from West Side Story, Jacob Keith Watson
singing “Out There” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and
Tally Sessions singing “Being Alive” from Company.
We want to take this
opportunity to thank you for the extraordinary support we have received
from our subscribers and donors over the past nearly ten months since
the lockdown began. While this has been a difficult time for everyone,
the arts sector has been especially hard hit. Your steadfast support
has kept us going and provided us with much hope.
As we have now turned
the page on the calendar to a new year, we are very much looking
forward to our reopening. We know there are still many hurdles that lie
ahead of us; however, we are very optimistic that 2021 will see most,
if not all, of us sitting in a theater together, enthusiastically
enjoying a live performance. Until that time, please enjoy the rest of
our digital season, and look forward to hearing news of our safe
reopening in the months ahead.
Symphony Orchestra and Paper Mill Playhouse have collaborated on
a new video series. In the first part, Broadway veteran Rema Webb
and an NJSO string quintet gave an at-home performance of Rodgers
and Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel.
Future performances will be released online through April 2021.
