Jean’s Playhouse Announces 30th Season of Theatre in the White Mountains!

LendMeATenor22bLincoln, New Hampshire – June 8, 2016 – Jean’s Playhouse Announces 30th Season of Theatre in the White Mountains!

Thirty down and counting! Jeans Playhouse is celebrating 30 exhilarating years of professional theatre here in the heart of the White Mountains! Join us for a sensational anniversary season filled with community, rebellion, laughter, and sincerity. We are thrilled to announce the upcoming summer season is opening with Leading Ladies, presented by our professional Papermill Theatre company and The Ugly Duckling, presented by our IMPACT Children’s Theatre company, followed by many more!

The laugh out loud comedy Leading Ladies, by Ken Ludwig, opens our 30th season from the heart with two down-on-their luck Shakespearean actors that resolve to pass themselves off as a wealthy elderly woman’s beloved nephews to get her cash, only to discover that her inheriting relatives aren’t nephews, but nieces! Leading Ladies will play June 23rd-July 9th, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm, and Wednesday afternoons at 2:00 pm on June 29th and July 6th. Join us on Thursday, June 23rd, for our Opening Night Gala Event here at Jean’s for a delicious, locally catered dinner and musical entertainment before the show! The party doesn’t end at the close of the curtain- enjoy some champagne and dessert while you meet the performers after the show! More information for Leading Ladies and the Gala event can be found on our website.

If your group of theatre goers aren’t quite old enough for a glass of bubbly, join us the day before for the opening of our IMPACT Children’s Theatre performance, The Ugly Duckling! Our IMPACT company will be opening their heartwarming story on Wednesday, June 22nd at 10am. The travelling company will perform once again at 10am on Saturday here in Lincoln before venturing out to perform in other communities around the Granite State. They will return the following Wednesday to perform the curious tale, Hansel and Gretel.

That’s not all! Stay tuned for performances of Godspell running July 14th-30th, Avenue Q: August 4th-20th; Altar Boyz: August 25th – September 10th; Steel Magnolias: September 22nd – Oct 1st; and closing out with On Golden Pond: October 6th- 15th.
