Mrs. Shields is proud to announce that Joshua Dunn, Senior Theatre Arts student here at County Prep, is about to finish his first season with Papermill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir. Joshua says that “this has been an amazing opportunity and an incredible learning experience.” They have performed all over NJ and NY, went on their own tour called Vocal Ovation, and recently performed for the Rising Star Awards which was broadcast on national TV.
The Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir is an audition based, exhibition Show Choir that stems from Paper Mill Playhouse’s award-winning Arts Education and Outreach programs. According to their website, the choir consists of 40 singer/dancers between the ages of 16 and 22. The Paper Mill Playhouse Broadway Show Choir act as ambassadors to Paper Mill Playhouse with an array of performance opportunities throughout the community and beyond. Students selected to be a part of this talented group have the opportunity to fine tune their craft with free, intensive instruction with an array of public performance opportunities.
Recently the Papermill Playhouse has just received a Tony award for excellence in regional theatre.
The show choir’s final concert is this weekend at Sopac and will be broadcast on national TV. The choir is directed by Shayne Miller, with Musical director Matthew Lowy and choreographed by Joshua Schnetzner.
