Mark your calendars! We’re teaming up with Amphora, a phenomenal Greek restaurant in Derry, NH, for an incredible evening of entertainment and deliciousness.

Jocelyn Duford’s new one-woman show (accompanied by Jamie Feinberg) will be at Amphora on Saturday, June 6 at 8:30 p.m. You’ll be able to purchase tickets on our website soon. Tickets will be a very affordable night out with a $15 cover with a 2 drink minimum – and the full menu, wine & beer will be available for purchase during the show! The show is recommended for ages 12 & up due to a few songs with adult language.

The hilarious Duford’s powerhouse voice and personality will be thoroughly showcased through a dynamic range of selections in this 90-minute tour through the alphabet (yes, there is a song for letter X too!). With the help of some simple props and costumes, she’ll play everything from the perpetually engaged Adelaide of Guys and Dolls to a cranky, jaded third grade teacher from Ruthless! to an evil but adorable cheerleader from Bring It On and the iconic stage mother Rose of Gypsy.
Here are a few photos from our debut performance in Gorham, NH last week. You won’t want to miss this!!!

When a theater company applies for the rights to a show, they are not GUARANTEED the rights until they’ve paid for them. Therefore, they aren’t allowed to promote the show, or even announce it in any way.

Well, we’ve applied for the rights to a show. This show is such a certified winner that we have been sworn to secrecy, even AFTER we get the rights, from telling anyone in the Boston area about our show. We can’t even post the information to websites, except our own! shh

Why are we agreeing to go along with this crazy, covert, weird musical stuff? Well, because who wouldn’t want to be a part of a top-secret show? Also, clearly, the show is just THAT GOOD.

If you believe that we have good taste in material, or you just like that there is a southern New Hampshire company refusing to stage anything but high-quality, lesser-known musicals that you just wouldn’t be able to see anywhere else, we need your help.

To learn about all of the ways you can get involved, click here. 

We’re beyond excited for Something Wonderful I Missed: Holiday Edition and the amazing six course meal with six wine pairings that you’ll enjoy while you watch the performance. We will have a few seats available at the door – arrive early (between 6:30 and 6:45) to get yours.

Still on the fence? Click here to learn more about the show and here to see the incredible menu.

To purchase your tickets now visit Amphora (55 Crystal Ave., Derry) and buy them in person today.
