Because it’s closing, of course…leave them wanting more, right?

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)

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 show debuts for one night only at the Medallion Opera House in Gorham, NH on Tuesday, May 5 at 7 p.m. Jocelyn will be accompanied by pianist Jamie Feinberg of Franconia.

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 GypsyDSC_0473 smaller
