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.

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.
