Paper Mill Playhouse has launched a new education service for high school students who aim to study theater or musical theater in college — Paper Mill Prep, a college discovery and audition coaching program.
Paper Mill Prep kicks off the college audition season with a two-day College Discovery Seminar for students and their parents on Saturdays, November 1 & 8 from 1-4 pm at the Millburn theater. These group information sessions will introduce high school juniors and seniors to the various theater and musical theater degrees available to them, review the ever-evolving college audition timeline and requirements, and discuss what will be expected of applicants at college auditions and the Unified Auditions.
Limited seats for the two-day College Discovery Seminar are now open to the public for the registration fee of $300 per family (one student with one parent). To reserve seats, contact Jason Gillis at 973-315-1668 or JGillis@PaperMill.org.
Following the seminar, individual students may also opt to prepare for their college audition with Paper Mill’s faculty through a series of private coaching sessions. Following a Performance Skills Assessment workshop with Paper Mill Prep faculty on Saturday, November 15, a coach will work with each student and their parents to navigate their options, select and prepare their audition monologues and songs, and provide ongoing guidance and communication throughout the fall and winter months.
