MILLBURN — Paper Mill Playhouse announced its Children’s Theater programming for Spring 2013 this week. “What better way to spend a Saturday morning than introducing your child to the live theater experience with characters and stories they love?” said Mark S. Hoebee, producing artistic director at Paper Mill Playhouse.

All shows take place on select Saturdays at 10 a.m. Tickets range in price from $12 to $20. Tickets may be purchased by calling 1-973-376-4343, 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 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. For more information, call the box office at 973-376-4343 or visit www.papermill.org.
