Paper Mill Playhouse would like to send a heartfelt thank you to all the friends and supporters who helped us celebrate at the Curtain Up on the 76th Season Gala. Your enthusiastic and generous participation made the Gala another spectacular and sold-out success!
We are thrilled to report that this year’s Gala exceeded its goal, providing necessary support for the artistic, education and outreach programs that enrich the lives of thousands each year. This achievement would not have been possible without the backing of our Gala Sponsors: Hilton Short Hills, American Airlines, Dior, PNC, and Tiffany & Co. We are so grateful to them and to everyone who participated in the annual benefit.
The Gala included so many memorable moments – honoring Linda Bowden with the Byrne/Kean Arts Advocate Award; Jason Robert Brown’s spell-binding rendition of “When You Say Vegas;” the appearance of our very own Rob McClure as a Gala headliner; and the touching performance by Paper Mill’s youngest performers. But our personal favorite was when Tony Danza said that working at Paper Mill was “the greatest creative experience of his life.” A compliment that everyone in the Paper Mill family should take great pride in.
