Contest: Can you guess the plays in Paper Mill Playhouse’s 2020-2021 season?

Paper Mill Playhouse contest 2020-2021

Here are clues to four of the five plays in the Paper Mill Playhouse’s 2020-2021 season. The fifth will be Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida.”

As previously announced, one of the plays in the 2020-21 season at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn will be a “reimagined” version of Elton John and Tim Rice’s “Aida.” The other four won’t be announced until March 18. And, as usual, the theater running a contest to see who can guess them.

There are clues to the four in the images above. And will be giving away a pair of tickets to Paper Mill’s April 1-26, 2020 production of “Sister Act” to the reader who gets the most plays right.

The theater will be giving out tickets in other ways, too. But if you’d like to enter the contest, send an email to by midnight March 17, with “Paper Mill” in the subject line. The person who gets the most correct, wins. If there is a tie, we will select one entry, randomly.

A word of advice: This is an exceedingly hard contest, especially since one or more of the productions may be world premieres. Even if you’re taking wild guesses, it’s worth entering, since it’s quite possible that no one will get anything right, in which case we will still pick one winner, randomly.

The season will run from the fall of 2020 to the late spring or early summer of 2021.
