NEW VOICES PURE IMAGINATION
THIS SUMMER’S NEW VOICES PERFORMANCE WILL BE A VIDEO PRESENTATION CALLED “PURE IMAGINATION”
The annual “New Voices” performance is the culmination of Paper Mill Playhouse’s Summer Musical Theater Conservatory, and for the summer of 2020 it moves to a video format. Members of the competitive Conservatory who earned coveted spots in the Senior (ages 15–18), Junior Plus (ages 13–14), and Junior companies (ages 10–12) are directed by Paper Mill Playhouse’s professional artistic staff in this professionally produced, video project.
The Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Musical Theater Conservatory is a program of rigorous study allowing students to enhance their individual performance potential while developing a broad base of theater experience and knowledge. New Voices is an amazing opportunity to see the stars of tomorrow.
This original video presentation will feature 70 incredible performers. It is amazing to see these young performers grow into professional artists with inspiring, heartfelt performances. Students from Paper Mill Playhouse’s Conservatory have gone on to appear in numerous Broadway productions, film, television, and regional theater.
We are pleased to share an example of the work of our talented Summer Conservatory student body, who in the spring of 2020 united to prepare and produce, “Over The Rainbow”. This student-driven project demonstrates the talent, community and spirit of Paper Mill’s Summer Conservatory.
