June Events

Fred Marple

June 4

As seen on New Hampshire Chronicle!

Fred Marple is back for an evening Yankee humor, music and  assorted nonsense for the whole family!

Fred is the unofficial spokesman for the mythical town of Frost Heaves, NH, and he’s on a one-man campaign to put Frost Heaves back on the map. “It’s a one-man crusade because everyone else has real jobs,” says Fred.

Here’s what people are saying:

“…laughed so hard my face hurt…”

“A hoot!”

Jason Tardy

June 11

You may have seen juggling, but you haven’t truly experienced it until you’ve seen the explosive, inventive, high-energy juggling of Jason Tardy. His show is a combination of many years of relentless practice, and virtually no social life whatsoever. His hilarious show includes innovative choreographed juggling to music, fitting his body through a tennis racket, bowling ball juggling, balancing a ladder on his face, standing on a yoga ball, and if you trust him enough; fire eating and fire breathing!

A message from the Artistic Director

I am excited and optimistic to be able to get back to a full 5 show season we have planned for our 92nd year. With the current state of the world being what it is, it is more important than ever to me that the theatre should be telling stories about the joy we see in viewpoints that are not necessarily familiar to us. I hope this season fills us all with laughter, love, mystery, and that when we experience theater together, we remember that even during challenging times, no one is alone.

Into the Woods

June 30 – July 9

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim,  book by James Lapine

One of Stephen Sondheim’s most beloved musicals, Into the Woods cleverly weaves together the stories of well known fairytale characters. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. Rating: PG.

The Legend of Georgia McBride

July 14 – 23

Matthew Lopez

He’s young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he’s just found out his wife is going to have a baby. To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small-town Florida bar. When the bar owner brings in a B-level drag show to replace his act, Casey finds that he has a whole lot to learn about show business—and himself.

Rating: PG-15, adult language.

Silent Sky

August 11 – 20

Lauren Gunderson

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. Rating: G.
