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!

Help Goblins Take The Hatbox Theatre!

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.
