Surprise Yourself With What You Can Do!

We are proud to have been voted your Favorite Place to Take an Arts Class again in the New Jersey People's Choice Awards!

Performing in front of an audience doesn’t have to be scary.  With practice, anyone can gain the presentation skills and confidence to act, sing or dance onstage. The key is finding a nurturing environment where you can hone your craft -- a place that encourages you to try new things without fear, and lets you explore your talents and creativity in a fun, encouraging setting. That’s who we are, and that’s what we do.

Whether you’re an aspiring performer or you simply want to increase your comfort level with public speaking, there is a part for you at Paper Mill Playhouse Theatre School. For over 30 years, we have been helping students of all ages and skill levels develop their passion for performance and communication -- qualities that are invaluable in every career, from Broadway to the boardroom.

Whether it’s singing, dancing, acting, or learning how to connect with an audience, with help and instruction, you won’t believe what you can do!

Our weekly classes are open to students of all skill levels and age ranges:

Junior Players - ages 3-13

Youth Theatre - ages 12-17

Adults - ages 18 and up


Most classes run for 18 weeks from September thru March and culminate in a wonderful "sharing" for family and friends on the last day of the session. Each season our classes SELL OUT, so don’t delay in selecting your class! We have offerings for children ages 3 and up, as well as for adults. Select an age group from the Education menu and surprise yourself with what you can do!
