On Golden Pond with Eastern Adaptive Sports at Jean’s Playhouse

ogp-rehearsal-picLincoln, New Hampshire – September 29, 2016 – On Golden Pond with Eastern Adaptive Sports at Jean’s Playhouse

On Golden Pond is a 1979 play by New Hampshire writer and director Ernest Thompson. The love story of Ethel and Norman Thayer, returning to their summer home for the forty-eighth year. Time, they know, is against them, but the years have been good and, perhaps, another summer on Golden Pond still awaits. During the year the story takes place, they are visited by daughter Chelsea with her fiancé Billy Ray and his son Billy Ray Jr. The play explores the often turbulent relationship the young woman shared with her father growing up, and the difficulties faced by a couple in the twilight years of a long marriage. This beloved NH classic will be playing October 6-15, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. with 2:00 matinee performances on Monday, October 10 and Wednesday, October 12. More information on this production can be found at www.jeansplayhouse.com.

Join us for a special gathering on Saturday, October 8 at 6:00 p.m. to support Eastern Adaptive Sports before a performance of On Golden Pond! Eastern Adaptive Sports (EAS) is a community where people can come to find fellowship, education, and life enhancement through sport. EAS is fostered by the idea that people with physical and cognitive challenges can live vibrant, active, healthy ritalin lives surrounded by family, friends and community who believe that a disability is not a limitation; it is an opportunity. We are dedicated to seeking individual opportunities to change lives and ensure life-driving purpose through sport, education and advocacy. Appetizers and Silent Auction start at 6:00 p.m., followed by a short presentation by Jeff Krill at 7:00 p.m., with the show at 7:30 p.m.

Grammy-nominated guitarist Jon Butcher is coming to Jean’s on Sunday, October 9 at 7:30 p.m. for a special acoustic concert with bluesman Bruce Marshall and Churck Farrell of the Nor’easters. Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists comprising the legendary Boston music scene. His signature sound and particularly his guitar work represent a skillful mix of Americana- rock, R&B, jazz and folk, all of it focused through a prism built from the Blues. All tickets are $20.

Jean’s Playhouse is proud to announce A White Mountains, NH Community Arts Event: SCROOGE! The Musical, this December 2016. 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 Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. In SCROOGE! The Musical, the same cast of characters- Scrooge, Marley, the Cratchits, and more- will grace the stage, but now they will act, sing and dance their way into the hearts of the audience! Performances are scheduled December 2-18, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. Tickets on sale now!
