Heavenly Hunks and Soul-Cleansing Musical Satire!

A Boyz promoLincoln, New Hampshire – August 3, 2016 – Heavenly Hunks and Soul-Cleansing Musical Satire!

It’s been an exhilarating summer full of crossdressers, minstrels, and mouthy puppets here at Jean’s Playhouse! Now we’re adding hunky pop heart throbs to the list. We are bursting at our sequin-lined seams to announce the musical comedy presented by our professional Papermill Theatre Company, Altar Boyz, will be opening on August 25th and will run through September 10th.

Altar Boyz is a hilarious musical satire starring five studly Christian vocalists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham. The musical is presented as a real time final concert in the “Raise the Praise” tour of the fictitious all-male singing and dancing quintet, the Altar Boyz. During their farewell performance, the members of the band attempt to decrease, if not completely abolish, the number of burdened souls in the venue by the close of the show. Like many boy bands before them, each member experiences their own personal highlights and struggles and throughout their tumultuous performance, we begin to see their own burdens sneak through the seams of their superficial foundation. This show, with music and lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker and book by Kevin Del Aguila, will be playing August 25th through September 10th at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturdays. There will be two matinee performances at 2 pm on Wednesday, August 31st and 12 pm on September 7th. More information on this production can be found at jeansplayhouse.com!

Stay tuned for the mainstage productions this fall season! Steel Magnolias opens September 22nd – Oct 1st and the fall season closes out with On Golden Pond which shows October 6th- 15th.
