Show Choir Tours with Ballet on Broadway for Three Performances Only
This spring, the Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir will tour across the state with New Jersey Ballet performing at prestigious venues like Bergen Performing Arts Center, the Mayo Performing Arts Center and the Wilkins Theatre at Kean University.
From Seven Brides for Seven Brothers to Kiss Me Kate, the Ballet on Broadway series will feature some of Broadway’s most memorable dance sequences, set to the music of Sondheim, Cole Porter, and the duo of Saul Chaplin and Gene de Paul. For more than half a century, 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. For three performances only, there will also be show-stopping performances by the award winning Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir.
“We are thrilled to partner with New Jersey Ballet to showcase the talent of Paper Mill Playhouse’s Broadway Show Choir,” stated Shayne Miller, Show Choir Director and Paper Mill’s Director of Press and Public Relations. “This is a wonderful opportunity to mix the world-class work of two not-for-profit arts organizations in New Jersey.”
