Jean’s Teens and Lin-Wood School Present GIVE AND TAKE

JSS 8Lincoln, New Hampshire – November 7, 2015 – Jean’s Teens and Lin-Wood School Present GIVE AND TAKE

Jean’s Teens and Lin-Wood Public School are proud to present Give and Take by Michael Scanlon on November 13-15, Friday and Saturday evening at 7:00 PM and Sunday afternoon at 2:00 PM. Give and Take is a collection of multicultural folktales from around the world, written into a play by a high school acting class from Rhode Island to show how various cultures respond to the concepts of generosity and greed. The stories, some quite humorous and others quite poignant, originate from Native America, Africa, England, Japan, Russia, Ireland, Italy and South America, using a variety of theatrical techniques including mime, Kabuki style and Greek chorus. Tickets are $15 for all ages; Lincoln-Woodstock residents are $10.

Jean’s Teens is the community-based youth theatre company of Jean’s Playhouse that, like Playhouse Players, was started in 2012 with the opening of the Jean’s Playhouse facility.  The company gives local youths the opportunity to participate in plays and musicals with their peers.  The emphasis with Jean’s Teens is on education — youth of all ages are invited to audition, whether hoping to begin their career in theatre or looking for a fun social event with other talented locals.

The 2015 National Tour of A Christmas Carol will debut at Jean’s Playhouse on Wednesday, November 25th at 7:00 PM. This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance that WILL sell out, so get your tickets early! The Jean’s Playhouse National Touring Company of A Christmas Carol will travel 9,500 miles to 16 different venues in New Hampshire, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Florida, Missouri and Colorado!

A powerful story of redemption, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has enchanted audiences the world over with its simple message of Holiday joy. Ebenezer Scrooge, that most unrepentant and miserly of fellows, is made to see the light as he survives a merciless battery of revelations by the ghosts of his own life: Jacob Marley and the Christmas Spirits of Past, Present, and Future. With the music of 26 beloved traditional carols of the season woven throughout this classic tale, this new adaptation of Dickens’ ever popular classic fills the stage with first class professional actors, lush costumes, stunning sets and puppetry, song and dance, a heavy dose of humor, and a timeless message. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors, and $16 for students and children.

Jean’s Playhouse operates the professional Papermill Theatre and IMPACT Children’s Theatre Companies in the summer and fall; the community Playhouse Players and Jean’s Teens theatre companies in the winter and spring; as well as a limited year-round guest artist series of magicians, comedians and musicians. Jean’s Playhouse is located at 34 Papermill Drive in Lincoln, adjacent to ongoing construction of the Riverwalk at Loon Mountain site off I-93 Exit 32.
