The hit comedy show Frost Heaves returns to Jean’s Playhouse in Lincoln, NH on April 16 at 7 pm.

“This is the most exciting thing to happen since Millie Tuttle took 3rd place at the country fair for her pickled chicken wings,” says Fred Marple, unofficial spokesman for the town of Frost Heaves. “That was in the Didn’t Know You Could Eat That category.”

The Frost Heaves Players have a very special show planned for their return visit, including: the Yankee Roadshow, where hopeful locals bring their junk to be snickered at; Museums for Men, an educational experience just for guys; Frost Heaves Fairy Tales presents a Yankee version of Cinderella; Yankee Pop Songs, classic oldies redone with a New England twist; Life’s Little Mystery Theatre (“Why don’t mean listen to women when they’re talking?”), the news from Frost Heaves, prizes, and more.

The Speed Bumps band, just back from a smash performance at the Road Kill Cookoff in East Milfoil, will perform oldies and write an original Song on the Spot based on audience suggestions. “For some folks, having their suggestion chosen for the Song on the Spot is the best thing that ever happened to them–which is pretty sad,” says Fred.

It has been a busy year for the Frost Heaves crew. “We’re producing a version of the show for HBO,” says Fred. “HBO doesn’t know that, but we don’t want to wait till the last minute if they come calling.” There has even been discussion of a Frost Heaves Theme Park, although as Fred says, “We’ll probably run into problems with local zoning ordinances about toxic waste dumps.”

Frost Heaves has been featured on New Hampshire Chronicle and in the pages of Yankee Magazine and New Hampshire Magazine. It has been called “hilarious,” “absolutely brilliant,” and “funnier than the time someone put BBs in Earl Hadley’s pellet stove.”

The show is April 16 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 and available for purchase at or 603-745-2141.

Jean’s Playhouse operates the professional Papermill Theatre and IMPACT Children’s Theatre Companies in the summer and fall and the community Playhouse Players in addition to Jean’s Teens theatre companies in the winter and spring.
