Our Indiegogo campaign has closed (thanks so much to everyone that contributed!), but we’re continuing to fundraise off line as we get ready for an incredible production of Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon’s Goblin Market.

We’re holding a VIP after-party after our opening night performance Friday, November 15, with great food and drink, swag bags and a chance to meet our poster artist, illustrator Don Higgins and experience his work for yourself. We’re getting really excited for it, and we hope you are too!

VIP tickets will be available here (notyourmomsmusicaltheater.com) soon. In the meantime, make sure you grab your tickets for the show at the Hatbox, as they’re very limited and may sell out!

Have you heard? Literally? Ross and Jamie have gotten together and created a musical theater comedy podcast, Finishing The Season. Ross poses a challenge for Jamie, where she needs to create a three show season that matches his criteria. And then Jamie shares it.

You’ll laugh, you almost certainly won’t cry, and you’ll probably learn about a new musical or two along the way. They’re ridiculous, after all.

The latest episode tackles renewal as a theme for the New Year. Check it out online or subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts!

On November 22, Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater presents the final concert in its Something Wonderful I Missed concert series. The series has been sponsored in part by Appletree Business Services.

Join us for one more show at the beautiful, historic Derry Opera House in downtown Derry, NH (29 W. Broadway, Derry, NH)

Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater’s final concert in its series on musical theater history explores the 2005 Broadway and off-Broadway seasons! Take a trip back and explore musicals like The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Little Women, Spamalot, Dessa Rose, The Light in the Piazza, The Great American Trailer Park Musical and many more, including selections from See What I Wanna See, performed by NYMMT in the fall of 2012. The concerts are emceed by local performers and personalities who will illustrate the often ridiculous and always interesting history of the songs. This concert, the final one in the series, features more than a dozen of southern New Hampshire’s best musical theater performers.

November 22nd’s 4 p.m. concert at the Derry Opera House will be followed by a free reception and presentation in celebration of four years of concerts in the Londonderry/Derry area. When the series is complete, the cast will have performed twenty unique concerts (each with original scripts) covering twenty different years in musical theater history!

The concert is directed by Jamie Feinberg and the cast is the company’s largest to date, with all who have participated in past concerts invited to join for the final song. (RSVP by November 15 if you want to join the cast!) This concert features Mario Arruda, Ross Boyd, Amber Byron, Christie Conticchio, Jocelyn Duford, Lauren Friedman, Rose Harmon, Don Higgins, Allyson Holmes, Dan Holmes, Elliot Owens, Sheree Owens, Judy Pancoast, Jessica Plummer, Melody Reese, Angelica Rosenthal, Deb Shaw and Joey T. Jamie Feinberg and Tom Holmes accompany, with assistance from Jesse Reese.

Tickets can be purchased at the door. Suggested donation for admission is $10 adults, $5 students to insure that all are able to attend the performance. All audience members will receive a free ticket to participate in the Audience Choice raffle!

Melody Reese, Sheree Owens and Jessica Plummer rehearse "I Gave It Away", part of a special video presentation for the 2005 concert.

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.
