Last April, New Jersey Student Stephanie Mahr of Bridgewater Raritan High School won the spring season PLAYBILLder sweepstakes. Mahr, who was the production stage manager for the school’s theatre department and president of Thespian Troupe #5154, was awarded a package that included 1,500 copies of a 24-page PLAYBILLder and ten posters for the BRHS spring production of The Will Rogers Follies. “This is the first major recognition of the BRHS Theatre program. We are thrilled! “Maehr told Playbill. “It is our mission to promote the performing arts in our school and community—what an auspicious beginning!”

PLAYBILLder is the online service to help schools and community arts programs create and print professional-quality Playbills for productions, concerts, recitals, and more. Since its launch in 2013, the platform has grown exponentially and now boasts over 46,000 unique users in all 50 states with over 1 million Playbills printed annually. The PLAYBILLder experience starts with a save-the-date invitation that can be sent to friends, family, and community members directly through the website. Users are then guided through a step-by-step process in creating a program, right down to deciding whether to print locally or have fully printed-and-bound copies sent directly to them via Playbill’s professional print services. There’s even a virtual Playbill that can be shared on all forms of social media.
Schools can also save valuable time with PLAYBILLder Express. Select from thousands of pre-populated programs and begin to customize your production’s programs. Simply choose your title and PLAYBILLder Express automatically fills in the billing page, character names, song list and more. PLAYBILLder Express is powered by Music Theatre International, The Musical Company, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Tams-Witmark, Theatrical Rights Worldwide, Dramatists Play Service, Really Useful Group (UK/IE) and Josef Weinberger (UK/IE).
