Now Playing Onstage in New Hampshire - Week of 3/30/2014 THE PRODUCERS
PALACE THEATRE
3/21-4/5/2014
Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, THE PRODUCERS once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly "boffo" hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime For Hitler"), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (ANNIE) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks , THE PRODUCERS skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an "equal opportunity offender!"

ST ANSELM COLLEGE
3/28-4/5/2014
A down-and out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon "Audrey II" grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination! One of the longest-running Off-Broadway shows of all time, this affectionate spoof of 1950s sci-fi movies has become a household name, thanks to a highly successful film version and a score by the songwriting team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, who redefined the animated musical film with Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Charming, tuneful and hilarious, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS never fails to entertain. A small cast, band and unit set make the other aspects of production a snap.

The Majestic Theatre
4/4-4/6/2014
Billionaire industrialist Wentworth Jefferson invites private investigator Joey (Jo Ellen) Reynolds to a party at his mansion where she meets, and secretly photographs, the people he believes might wish to see him dead. Frozen for a moment, as if caught on film, we meet the suspects: his flighty wife, Mamie; her children, playboy Sam Kane and sculptress daughter, Selena; his bitter ex-wife, Julia Jefferson; society columnist Felica Phillips, whom he once jilted; his spinsterish personal assistant, Debra Mason; and a senior executive in his firm, Paul Carter, and his genteel Southern wife, Mary Jane. Also present are a trio of servants who are not fond of their employer. Before the evening is over, one of those present kills Jefferson. But which one? Joey and police detective Al Reynolds, her ex-husband, use her photos to uncover an important clue.

The Village Players
4/4-4/13/2014
In Hendricks, they're looking for a murderer. At the small-town, city council meeting, Mayor Kathleen Lyles boldly announces that the agenda will include an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the murder of the man who just happened to be an employee of the IRS. "Somehow I don't feel that bad!", says committeeman Carl Johansen. Slowly it becomes apparent the entire city council had seen the man, and each of them seems to be hiding something. Who murdered the stranger? Was it Cora Sedgewick, who was still dizzy at the time from stepping on a rake and being thumped in the face with its handle? Or newspaper editor Eddie King, who's right on the spot to report the facts, if he could only find a pencil? Or maybe the mayor herself, who was at city hall during off-hours? This ensemble cast is chock-full of small-town, colorful characters and hilarious dialogue. And, as an added bonus, there will be an element of audience participation, where the audience can not only see the scene of the crime, but also question the suspects.

This show has vitality, timelessness and a meaning that outlives the late 1960's and early 1970's in America.
