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!

It’s back! The show you’ve been waiting for!

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.
