The show is cast, the plans are laid, and now we just need the money to bring our dreams to life!

Picture a world inspired by movies by Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal. A fantastical haunted glen, where two sisters embark in search of goblins.

Puppets, a living and breathing set created by our ensemble and best of all, Allyson Holmes and Jocelyn Duford’s absolutely exquisite vocals bringing the show to life.

Sound great? Sound unique to New Hampshire? Sound special? Please help us make it happen!

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

Audiences Agree - NH Premiere of Weird Romance Is Not To Be Missed

Opening night was a huge success – audiences found the show to have incredible and extremely well-executed music, with a cast of singer/dancers who mined the show for all of the character depth and emotion it’s worth.

Don’t miss your chance to see this show that will move, astonish, and make you think.

Doors open tonight at 7:30 – why not arrive early and have a great meal in downtown Derry (or visit our advertiser, Amphora, for great Greek food!) before the show? Please consider joining us and spread the word to your friends too.
