Winner of six Tony® Awards including “Best Musical,” Paper Mill Playhouse will showcase for the first time, the 1920’s musical romp, Thoroughly Modern Millie.

With an award-winning score by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, The Little Mermaid tells the story of Ariel, a courageous young mermaid who defies the rules and follows her heart.
