Details on venue/auditions/all sorts of fun stuff to be announced any day now, but mark your calendars for January 19-22 of 2011 and stay tuned!!!!!!

This show is INCREDIBLE.

A few exciting additions to our lineup….

On October 30th, NYMMT is planning a Halloween party, which will feature a still being assembled cast of past NYMMT performers and local bands at Manchester’s favorite dive bar, The Jam Factory (attached to Raxx Billiards). Tickets will be only $5 at the door, and we’ll have fun raffles and goodies. Costumes are encouraged! The show begins at 7 and we’ll have details soon.

On November 12, Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater will be performing at Not Your Grandma’s Craft Fair. This exciting fair, with an arts and crafts version of our own vision of theater, will run from 9-3 at McDonough Elementary School in Manchester. NYMMT is pleased to bring musical entertainment to the event, including Joey T., Kevin Kimball, other past [title of show] cast members, and local bands Tuna Fish Discrepancy and The Fitted Shirt presenting acoustic sets.

Lastly, we’re in negotiations for the rights to our upcoming season. We have some VERY exciting shows in the works and we hope to be able to announce them within the next week or two!

p.s. Exciting offers and video blogs are in the works, so stay tuned. 🙂

Friday evening at 7:30 pm at the Hillsboro-Deering Middle School (not the High School, but they’re off of the same driveway), join us for our one night only, return engagement of our hilarious, critically-acclaimed production of The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! Four actors take a basic plot and present it as five mini-shows in the styles of five different Broadway composers. Phantom of the Opera, Company, and Oklahoma! are just a few of the shows ripped apart in this hilarious spoof. Join us and see Jennifer Sue Mallard, Heidi Welch, Joey T., and Mike Gallagan prove they are triple-threats and comedians to boot! This show is recommended for high school students and adults due to some suggestive humor.

Tickets are at the door only, and are FREE. There are plenty of seats for all attendees. There is also a gourmet dessert option for only $5. Don’t miss it! Grab some friends and catch it this Friday.

Just a quick note that momentum is building for our trip to Boston! $1,100 has been committed in funds already, and we’re ramping up our fundraising plans to help everyone get involved, whether you have $5 to contribute or $500. Visit our NYMMT to Boston page for more information, and keep checking back for updates. Any suggestions and contributions, as always, are welcome!  

Happy Valentine’s Day, theatregoers! NYMMT has a variety of projects at the moment. Yesterday, some of us led an interactive murder mystery at Bentley Commons (with the help of their very talented staff) and were treated to some delicious food and dessert while we worked there. The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! is being remounted, for one, FREE night only, at Hillsboro-Deering High School in Hillsboro, New Hampshire. The information will be listed under Coming Attractions any day now, but in the meantime you can save the date of this hilarious show (worth the trip since it’s free) by marking your calendars for Friday, March 25th, at 7:30 PM.

In addition, NYMMT is working to secure more funding to remount [title of show] in the near future. If you, or anyone that you know, might be interested in helping us produce this show, or in sponsoring it, please email us at notyourmoms@gmail.com. Meanwhile, we’re also at work planning what the rest of our season might look like.

And most importantly-Marc Murai, winner of the [title of video blog] raffle at [title of show], has chosen a very worthy subject for our next video blog. The National Endowment for the Arts, which provides arts grants (almost half of which are delivered by the states themselves) to communities in every state, is facing massive cuts if we do not contact our representatives now. Please watch our video to learn more, and then use the simple website listed at the end of the video to fill out a tiny form and contact your representatives. (The link is only evident if you watch it on youtube, so we’ll list the link here as well below the video.) If you can spare a couple of minutes, please do. Theaters and schools across the country will thank you.

Spread some love this Valentine’s Day! And thanks for supporting us.

Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater is busy multi-tasking this week. We’ve got folks building signs and making costumes, creating new posters and sending press releases, and of course, rehearsing non-stop for [title of show]! Ticket sales are picking up (Saturday January 22nd at 7 PM is the most popular so far) so we suggest you choose a date and buy your tickets, as the show is next weekend and the following weekend only! Although this show is at the Derryfield School, it is NOT in the big auditorium-it’s in the Lyceum, which is a lecture hall in the Upper School building, and it only seats 70 chairs and 6 standing room only customers. So please reserve your tickets now (they’ll be held at Will Call for you at the door) to save yourself the chance of us selling out and you missing out on this show.

Thank you as always for supporting our quirky, affordable musical theater model. We couldn’t do it without you!

Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater is thrilled to announce it will be presenting the NH Premiere of [title of show] in January of 2010! The hilarious and talented cast of The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! returns to the stage with NYMMT, this time at the Lyceum (120 seat) space of the Derryfield School, to perform this hilarious, moving, and self-aware musical about two people writing a musical about two people writing a musical. This show is for 18+ audiences due to very frank and explicit language. Come spend a fun (and inspiring!) evening as the cast tells the true story of two nobodies in New York who write a show in three weeks and take it to the New York Musical Theater Festival, Off-Broadway, and eventually Broadway, all with only four chairs and a keyboard.

3 Performances only! January 22nd at 7 pm and 9 pm at the Derryfield Schools’ Lyceum space (not the big auditorium), as well as January 28th at 8 pm. Tickets will be available on this website within the next month, and sponsors, advertisers, and producers are still sought for this production. Mark your calendars and come join us! Email notyourmoms@gmail.com to get on board or with any questions.

Here’s our first video blog! We’ll be posting weekly or so once rehearsals begin.  

A last thought for the day-auditions are tomorrow (Friday the 22nd) for our Christmas Spectacular. Hope to see you there!

The newest video blog is up! It’s a great preview for this weekend or just a good laugh if you won’t be able to attend. Tickets are selling fast so save $2/ticket ($17 total with fees vs. $19 total with fees) by buying in advance at boyntonstaproom.com . Please share this with your friends as it’s a great promo for this weekend. Hope to see you there!

Video Blog 2 is posted. The cast parodied one of the Andrew Lloyd Webber parodies in the show and it’s pretty funny. (Yayyy musical theater improv!) Please share with your friends and tell them to get their tickets asap! Stay tuned for future video updates….Just added a bunch of new photos to the Musical of Musicals page as well.

The Musical of Musicals: The Musical! cast has been hard at work dancing, singing, acting and making fools of themselves over at Boynton’s Taproom in anticipation of the first NYMMT show September 17-19th. (Buy tickets) We know a month is FAR too long to sit around in anticipation of our first production, so in the meantime, expect video and text updates and some of the unexpected as well.
