Hi all, 

If the weather gods permit, we’re on for Sunday’s show at 4 p.m. If we do have to cancel or postpone the show until the evening,  you’ll see it here. In the meantime, here is what the town of Derry was able to suggest in terms of parking on Sunday in the snow. 

“Ron Robinson (Facilities Division) says that the Opera House
plaza and on-site sidewalks, and the main sidewalk on
Broadway right in front of the building will be cleared by
his crew before 4 pm, assuming the storm stops substantially
earlier than that.

The streets will be cleared.  He can’t comment on the snow
banks, on-street parking spaces or sidewalks throughout the
rest of the downtown.  That’s up to the Highway Division.
Ron recommends parking in the Abbot Court public parking
lot, behind some buildings on the opposite side of Broadway.
 It’s a short walk.”

Please use your judgement and stay safe, regardless. While the building is handicapped accessible, if the weather is awful, don’t test the limits of your abilities in the snow please! 

Reserve your seats (yes, we’re doing reserved seating, not general admission) by purchasing your tickets on our Coming Attractions page. 

Happy Friday!

Thank you so much to everyone who has come out to catch See What I Wanna See. We’ve loved hearing your feedback as you ponder who is telling the truth.

One more chance to take it all in, digest, and decide for yourself…and then party with us! You get all sorts of awesome stuff to take home too. Join us if you can, you won’t regret it! And dress up if you want to do the costume contest post-show. 🙂

We don’t want to brag, but we have such a great evening cooked up for Sunday night! From a hilarious all-male number from Five Guys Named Moe, to some dynamite duets and solos that just might bring the house (or church) down, to fantastic numbers you might recognize from Falsettos and The Secret Garden, it’s going to be an amazing night. Actors from our past concerts are joined by newcomers Joel Iwaskiewicz, Elliot Owens, and Becky Rush, who made NH laugh in her performance as the Storyteller in  Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

If you haven’t had time to join us yet, the concerts is this Sunday evening at 7 p.m. at the contemporary St. Peter’s Church, right next to Mack’s Apples in Londonderry, NH. It’s at 3 Peabody Row, and it’s right off exit 4 on 93. You could even go apple-picking before the show! Deb Shaw emcees an evening where you’ll learn some of the crazy history of the musicals running in 1992, while hearing some moving and just hysterically funny performances from some of the best. You can’t hear this stuff anywhere else, so please join us. Admission is a suggested donation of $10, or $5 for students, purchased at the door only. And we have a fantastic Audience Choice raffle where you decide what is performed and by who!

And while we’re at it…Tickets will be available on this website this week for our fall production, the NH Premiere of See What I Wanna See. This show will blow your mind. Scroll down for a few pics from our recent photo shoot.

Thanks for your support, and it isn’t too late to be an advertiser or producer and take that support a step further! Email us, as always, with any questions at notyourmoms@gmail.com. 

Wow….we really hope you’re free Sunday evening because we’ve got an incredible lineup of musical theater madness from 1982. Want to hear a little Dreamgirls? Want to vote for your favorite song from Little Shop of Horrors? Want to hear some hilarious songs you’ve never heard, and see some powerful and poignant stuff too? It’s really going to be a blast, and we think it’s the best one yet. Join us at St. Peter’s in Londonderry, NH, and click here for more info on the series. Our fantastic cast includes Robin Boyd as our emcee, with Joey T., Jocelyn Duford, Anja Parish Ward, Jamie Feinberg, Glen Grimard, Marc and Sarah Murai, Dan Holmes, Deb Shaw, Sheree Owens, Charisse Shields, and our recent cabaret performer Aimee Robidoux. 

Don’t miss your only chance to see a stellar, FREE performance (although we hope you’ll make a donation if you’re able) at the gorgeous St. Peter’s Church. The cast includes members of our upcoming NH Premiere See What I Wanna See, and we’ve got a fantastic rock combo as well.

Oh, and if you want, take a look at this Nashua Telegraph article on the series! 

Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater is thrilled to present the NH premiere of the sexy, edgy and provocative musical See What I Wanna See. With music and lyrics by Michael John LaChuisa ( The Wild Party, Marie Christine, Bernarda Alba, etc.), it is based on three short stories, including the inspiration for the movie Rashomon, written by Japanese author Ryunosuke Akutagawa. The show explores themes of truth, such as how one person’s truth isn’t the same as another’s, and how a fiction can become a truth, or a truth become a fiction. Off-Broadway in 2005, the show calls for 3 men and 2 women with doubling, although the cast may be expanded. Its off-Broadway production featured Mark Kudisch, Idina Menzel, Mary Testa, Aaron Lohr and Henry Stram.

The show will be performed at Milly’s Tavern (in the back room) in Manchester, NH. Show dates are October 26-28 and Nov. 2. All roles are available, and expanding the cast (i.e. no doubling) may be considered.

What the critics had to say in NYC:

“SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE is a little powerhouse of a show whose sheer intensity will knock you flat” —Wall Street Journal. “Mr. LaChiusa delivers songs that strike at the heart…the notions of truth and belief are extended to a cosmic level. “—NY Times. “SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE has all the music you’d want from Broadway—cool jazz and all-purpose pop—loaded with some of the most succinct, precise, sexually frank lyrics I’ve heard in musical theater.” —Philadelphia Inquirer. “An intelligent, adult musical that entertains and astonishes at the same time…This smoky, sexy saga enhanced by LaChiusa’s muscular, jazzy score, flecked with Japanese influences and tough, punchy lyrics, makes SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE a highly original, even innovative journey.” —Associated Press. “Sassily innovative, consistently tantalizing and insidiously memorable” —Bloomberg.com. “A typically smart work from Michael John LaChiusa, SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE is a must-see.” —Star-Ledger.

An Evening of Unfortunate Entertainment: 1972 is right around the corner, and this concert will rock! Add in some new super talented singers and your favorites from last time, plus a four piece rock band, and you are in for a treat! With a suggested donation of $10 ($5 students), it’s also the best deal in town.
