This black tie evening will include dinner, dancing, notable auctions, and Broadway entertainment like you have never seen it before. The Curtain Up on the 76th Season Gala will also feature performances from The Eddie Bruce Band and students from Paper Mill’s Education programs.

Television, screen and stage icon, Tony Danza, will accept the Frank Carrington Excellence in the Arts Award during the Gala. Danza has recently made his Paper Mill Play House debut in the world premier musical Honeymoon in Vegas in a critically acclaimed performance as Tommy Korman.
