Local Performance Venues Host Arc Consumers for Holiday Shows

January 5th, 2022

The Papermill Playhouse in Millburn and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark both hosted groups from The Arc of Essex County during December, giving consumers and staff the opportunity to watch fun and festive holiday performances.

NJPAC provided complimentary tickets to two Cedar Grove group home residents and one chaperone, who enjoyed Mannheim Steamroller Christmas on December 15.

On December 21, the Papermill Playhouse held a special free community engagement performance of “A Jolly Holiday: Celebrating Disney’s Broadway Hits,” providing nearly 70 complimentary tickets to Arc consumers.

The Arc of Essex County thanks the Papermill Playhouse and NJPAC for their generosity in giving these memorable and enjoyable experiences to dozens in our Arc community, brightening the holiday season for local individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
