About Paper Mill Playhouse:
Founded in 1934, Paper Mill Playhouse has been a cherished New Jersey arts institution for more than 80 years. Paper Mill brings new American musical theater to life, with a national reputation that continues to grow. Paper Mill creates and produces groundbreaking new
musicals and reimagined classics. Several productions have gone on to Broadway and launched national tours, including Disney’s Newsies, Les Misérables, Honeymoon in Vegas, A Bronx Tale, and Bandstand. In 2016, Paper Mill received the Regional Theatre Tony award in

Paper Mill Playhouse entertains, inspires, and enriches lives. As the nation’s premier musical theater, we foster a creative environment to advance the art form, educate students, develop future theater lovers, nurture inclusion, and provide access for all.
NEW! Paper Mill has added a Management Fellow to our Fellowship Program starting in October 2021:
Management Fellow: The Management Fellow will report directly to the Managing Director and be engaged in the multifaceted world of management at a first-class regional musical theater. Duties will include assisting with capital campaign planning, grant writing and reporting, research on available local, state, and federal funding, advocacy efforts, liaising with Board committees, and interfacing with all departments on behalf of the Managing Director. This Fellow must have excellent research and writing skills and aspire to be a General Manager or Managing Director.
About the Fellowship Program
Paper Mill Fellows will spend two years (October 2021- June 2023) at one of the premier musical theaters in the country receiving practical training to launch a professional career in theater administration. Fellows will take on substantive roles within their departments, engage in cross-departmental collaboration, and attend enrichment events and social gatherings. This is a unique opportunity for the next generation of theater leadership to work, learn, and play in an environment with some of the top musical theater artists. The fellowships are intended for early-career theater practitioners. We recognize that this can look different depending on personal circumstance and could include: recent college graduates, those with a combination of some college and work experience, or those looking to change career paths or re-enter the workforce.
We are seeking enthusiastic candidates who will bring unique and new perspectives to the organization and specifically welcome applications from those from Black, Latinx, Asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds.
