Support Us

Your theater. Your impact. Every gift makes a difference during this crucial time.

Support Paper Mill Playhouse now to ensure the theater you know and love has a future beyond the COVID-19 crisis. It’s impact on our business is immediate and your financial support is crucial! We are deeply grateful for whatever level of contribution you can give. Start HERE. Stay safe and be well.

The theater was founded in 1938. It has survived floods and fires. It has survived near financial ruin. It now must survive COVID-19 and its aftermath. Many of you will remember that we nearly closed our doors for good in 2007. It was through the collective efforts of all of you who are considered part of the Paper Mill Family that we survived. And not only survived, but we thrived. The past eight years have proven to be some of the best in our 82 year history.

We would not be where we are today, if you all were not here cheering us on. We need you to keep cheering, and to cheer louder than ever.

As you know, we have cancelled or postponed productions, performances, classes, and our annual gala as well. Paper Mill Playhouse today operates with a staff and crew of over 100 individuals. With artists and additional technical support, we employ well over 600 people annually. As you make choices about how to support your community during this time, please consider making a donation to Paper Mill Playhouse by clicking HERE.

Your donation right now will directly support our employees and the artists of Paper Mill. We are working very hard right now to bring you a new season of extraordinary entertainment that will lift you up, and indeed lift up all of the restaurants and businesses in Millburn that support Paper Mill.

Paper Mill is a not-for-profit organization. With your participation, Paper Mill Playhouse creates original productions, theater arts classes, education outreach, and arts access programs. Supporters make it possible, because ticket sales alone are not enough to pay for everything a not-for-profit theater gives its community each season.

Learn about the many ways to get involved – to champion live theater, ensure access to the arts, prepare all children for a creative future, and safeguard the theater’s positive financial impact on hundreds of area businesses.
