CLICK CLACK MOO, SEUSSICAL and More Set for Paper Mill Playhouse's 2013 Children's Series

Paper Mill Playhouse, a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to rediscovering and re-imagining classic musicals and plays, announces Children's Theater programming for Spring 2013. The Children's Theater Series provides charming, engaging and educational performances perfect for children.

"What better way to spend a Saturday morning than introducing your child to the live theater experience with characters and stories they love?" stated Mark S. Hoebee, Producing Artistic Director at Paper Mill Playhouse.

All shows take place on select Saturdays at 10:00am. Tickets range in price from $12.00 to $20.00. Tickets may be purchased by calling 973-376-4343, or at the Paper Mill Box Office on Brookside Drive in Millburn, or online at www.papermill.org. Paper Mill Playhouse also offers gift cards available in any denomination. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express accepted.

The Spring 2013 Season of Children's Programming is listed below. It will include a sensory friendly production of Happily Ever After: A Cinderella Tale designed specifically for children on the autism spectrum or with other developmental disabilities, and planned in cooperation with Autism New Jersey and Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center at Rutgers. The theater environment will be altered for this performance, providing a sensory-friendly, comfortable and judgment-free space that is welcoming for all families. Additionally, Paper Mill Playhouse will host a free Open House titled "Meet Your Seat!" the day before this performance. This is an opportunity for children who are new to theater experiences to visit the theater space before the show.
