jeans-teens-the-phantom-tollboothLincoln, New Hampshire – October 25, 2016 –Jean’s Teens and Lin-Wood School Present The Magic Flute November 4-6

Jean’s Teens, the teen theatre group operated by Jean’s Playhouse in cooperation with Lin-Wood Public School, will be presenting The Magic Flute, November 4-6, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm.

Follow Prince Tamino in this hilarious tale as he travels to the castle of the evil Sarastro to save the princess Pamina. Along his magical journey he meets a wild cast of characters including Papageno, the three muses, the Greenbird, the spirits, and the fabled Queen of the Night. Armed with a magic flute given by the queen, Tamino is ready to take on Sarastro. The play has been adapted from Mozart’s famous opera. The Magic Flute will be Jean’s Teens seventh production with young participants from Lincoln, Woodstock, Thornton, Bethlehem, Waterville Valley and Plymouth.

Join us for our Annual Meeting & Celebrity Dinner on Wednesday, November 16 at the Gypsy Café. Our town heroes will take a turn as famous celebrities from the 1930s, 40s and 50s. We’ll be selling Funny Money to tip your servers: Make them sing, do tricks, or dance around the room! They’ll be at YOUR command for a small price. The bar opens at 5:30 with appetizers, followed by a short presentation by Jean’s Playhouse staff and board on 2016 successes and plans for the future, with a plated dinner served at 6:30 p.m. Dessert and coffee to follow!

Jean’s Playhouse is proud to announce our community holiday show: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the Musical, this December 2016! The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world–so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There’s not supposed to be biting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites! Soon everyone from the terrified pint-sized shepherds to the furious church ladies are calling for reluctant director Grace Bradley to cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Bradley and the Reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic. Silent night? Not a chance. But sometimes a little joyful noise is just right for Christmas.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the Musical is adapted from the beloved children’s book by Barbara Robinson. Performances are scheduled December 2-18, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $25, with $1 off per donated item of non-perishable food, up to $5 (food drive will benefit the Lin-Wood and Plymouth food pantries). Tickets on sale now! This production is generously sponsored by Dead River Company.

Jean’s Playhouse operates the professional Papermill Theatre and IMPACT Children’s Theatre Companies in the summer and fall and the community Playhouse Players and Jean’s Teens theatre companies in the winter and spring. Jean’s Playhouse also offers 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 Riverwalk at Loon Mountain (newly opened!) off I-93 Exit 32. Visit or call 603-745-2141 for more information.
