Have you checked out the Hatbox Theatre yet? It’s Concord’s most exciting new venue in the Steeplegate Mall. It’s a small, unique space perfect for the style of intimate performance that we love, and we’re happy to return there this fall.

September 29 at 7:30 p.m., you can catch Ross Malcolm Boyd & Jamie Feinberg in concert. They’re bringing their new duo set to New Hampshire for the first time this fall, and they’ll even be performing some musical improvisation from their theater improv days with Granite State Theatresports. Join them for a mix of originals and covers – and maybe some puppetry! – in a night you won’t soon forget. A custom version of one of Ross’ EPs is included in the price of admission.jr-square29.png

September 30 at 7:30, and October 1 at 2 p.m., Jocelyn Duford returns to Concord with her acclaimed one-woman touring production, Jocelyn’s ABC: Adult Broadway Cabaret. Jocelyn was a teaching artist for the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire and brought this and other performances north, and she’s happy to be returning the show to southern New Hampshire audiences. If you’ve ever seen Jocelyn, you know that she’s a stunning, hilarious performer with a knack for characters and a gorgeous, versatile voice. You truly don’t want to miss this ever-evolving tour-de-force showcase. She’ll be accompanied by Jamie Feinberg. joc-square2.png

Tickets are available now! Time to round up some friends for a wonderful weekend of entertainment. Please help us spread the word and join us for an evening or two of wonderful music and theater!

Musical theater performer Jocelyn Duford brings her one-woman cabaret to Concord at the Hatbox Theatre, Wednesday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. Local drag performer Amber Alyrt, a familiar face to NYMMT audiences, will make a special appearance. Tickets are $16.50 for adults or $13.50 for students under 18 (including a $1.50/ticket fee) and are available at www.hatboxnh.com or at the door as space allows.

Please note that this show is recommended for ages 12 & up due to a few songs with some adult language.

The show, which features one musical theater song for each letter of the alphabet, is at times hilarious & poignant as Jocelyn changes wigs, costumes & characters while showcasing the talent and artistry she is becoming known for. She may call upon a few audience members to assist her too! The solo performance draws on music from both well-known shows like Gypsy and Peter Pan as well as lesser-known shows like See What I Wanna See and Bring It On. She’s brought this show to Gorham and to Derry, and we’re thrilled to bring it to Concord audiences!

Jocelyn’s special guest for this performance is Amber Alyrt, a local drag performer. Amber, who frequently performs in Manchester and Boston, is the new host of Spoiler Alyrt, a weekly drag show, as well as Spoiler Alyrt: Variety Show, a variety show of drag, theater, music and more in the old-fashioned variety show tradition. That show is the first Wednesday of every month, and all of the Spoiler Alyrt shows are at the Breezeway Pub in Manchester. Amber will be familiar to local theater audiences as well, as her alter ego has been recognized three times at the New Hampshire Theatre Awards, including twice for us!

Jocelyn Duford is increasingly becoming a familiar face to musical theater audiences in the region. She has performed with the Palace Theatre, Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater, Stage 284, the Majestic Theatre and many more, and she recently opened her own theater education company, Theatricks of the Trade. Jocelyn is also a member of Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater’s touring company, most recently performing in The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! in VT and NH. Jocelyn will be accompanied by pianist Jamie Feinberg. Learn more about Jocelyn at www.jocelynduford.com.

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!!!
