Photo Coverage: HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL Opens at Paper Mill

Paper Mill Playhouse (Mark S. Hoebee-Artistic Director, Mark W. Jones-Executive Director) is currently presenting Paper Mill's premiere of Disney High School Musical directed by Paper Mill's Artistic Director Mark S. Hoebee. Denis Jones (Associate Choreographer of Legally Blonde) choreographs.  Disney High School Musical is based on the Emmy Award® winning Disney Channel hit musical and triple-platinum selling soundtrack.  Disney High School Musical began performances at the Millburn theatre on November 5 and will run through December 7, 2008.  Disney High School Musical is sponsored by RBC Wealth Management. 

Disney High School Musical is a contemporary Romeo and Juliet musical comedy.  Troy, captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella, a shy academically gifted transfer student discover they share a secret passion for singing.  When they audition together for the lead roles in the school musical, it threatens East High's rigid social order and sends their peers into an uproar.  The "jocks", "brainiacs", and "thespians" hatch convoluted plots to separate the pair and keep them off the stage.  However, by taking chances and defying expectations, the couple inspires other students to explore and showcase their own hidden talents. 

Paper Mill Playhouse, a not-for-profit arts organization, is one of the country's leading regional theatres. Paper Mill's programs are made possible, in part, by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, A Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional major support is provided by funding through a grant from the New Jersey Department of State, the National Endowment for the Arts, and generous contributions from many corporations, foundations, and individuals. Paper Mill Playhouse is a member of Theatre Communications Group, the National Alliance for Musical Theatre, the Council of Stock Theatres, and the New Jersey Theatre Alliance.
