Goblin Market artwork by Don Higgins I Not Your Mom's Musical Theater
Have you heard? Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater announces auditions for Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon’s Goblin Market!
The story: 

Two proper Victorian sisters are now grown and mothers. Returning to the nursery of their youth, they relive their haunting memories there. Goblins woo them with luscious fruits, promising them ecstasy beyond their imagination.

NYMMT’s Goblin Market blends puppetry and poetry, journeying through the psyches of these two sisters. It takes inspiration from art and the fantasy worlds of films like Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal with synthesizers and percussion enhancing the score.

Critics referred to this production in New York as “an absolutely gorgeous piece of Victorian erotica”….“a spellbinding, highly imaginative show….in a class by itself.”

This production is rated PG-13 due to Victorian-era eroticism and puppetry.

NYMMT is accepting video submissions for the production, which begins rehearsals in September and runs November 15-24 at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord, NH.
All roles paid small stipend plus a percentage of show profits. Rehearsals will be (mainly) be in the Concord, NH area, most likely M/W/Th/Fri prior to tech week.
