Our Town
No curtain. No scenery. A minimalist theatrical style sets apart the 1938 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama: Thornton Wilders Our Town. Wilders greatest and best-known work as a playwright, Our Town opens with the Stage Managers introduction to Grovers Corners, a fictional town based on Peterborough, New Hampshire where Wilder often spent his summers. The sparse and symbolic qualities of the set suggest Wilder’s intention to make Grovers Corners represent all towns. The Stage Manager breaks the fourth wall by directly addressing the audience and assumes control over the onstage action through such unconventional, metatheatrical devices as prompting actors and cueing scene changes. Once the actors have been set in motion by the Stage Manager in Act I, entitled, Daily Life, the allegorical world of Grovers Corners unfolds. The audience is introduced to the Gibbs and Webb families who symbolize ordinary people who make the human race seem worth preserving and represent the universality of human existence. The audience watches George and Emily talk through their second story bedroom windows, represented by ladders: their simple actions complemented by the simple set. Act II, Love and Marriage, takes place three years later on George and Emily’s wedding day. In Act III, Wilder focuses on the end of the life cycle. Opening: August 12th, 2016
Closing: September 25th, 2016

An epic rock concept album comes to life on stage. Four women front a six-piece rock band and tell the story of Lizzie Borden, Americas favorite double axe-murderess and Victorian hometown girl.In 1892 on a sweltering August day in a small New England town, a well-to-do elderly man and his second wife were brutally murdered with an axe in broad daylight. Lizzie Borden, their youngest daughter, was the primary suspect. She was arrested and tried, but, with no witnesses to the hideous crime, she was acquitted. The murders remain unsolved to this day. Though the actual history of Lizzie Borden provided the writers with inspiration and raw material, her legend, which comes down to us as a jump rope rhyme, is the imaginative core of Lizzie. History tells us Lizzie Borden was innocent, but the legend leaves no doubt about her guilt. Opening: October 7th, 2016.
Closing: October 31st, 2016

2016 Season Announcement


As our first official season prepares to come to an end with Anything Goes just weeks away, we wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of our patrons. Without you we would not be able to do what we love so very much and for that we are eternally grateful! We have so many so much coming in the new year and could not be more excited to share it with all of you!

We know that everyone has been eagerly waiting for our 2016 season to be finalized and after hours of deliberating, countless emails, and literally dozens of coin flips, we are proud to annouce our 5 show season. Kicking it off for our musicals is In The Heights, a lively show that will have you dancing in your seat. For our plays we went an entirely different route with Our Town, Thornton Wilders 3 Act play that examines the various stages of life. For our third show we wanted to keep in theme with Halloween and start a tradition following last years Sweeney Todd, and we are so incredibly pleased to announce that we will be opening the Regional Premiere of Lizzie, a rock musical all about Lizzie Borden. Coming back into the new year we will honor Harper Lee with our adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird. Ending our season with a bang will be Chicago, the beloved musical about two merry murderesses in Cook County Jail. For the first time ever we will be featuring two limited engagement shows, The Last 5 Years and Elf!, that will make up our 2016 Holiday Season.

Audition and Callback dates for all shows, both regular season and special events, are listed on the sidebar. To sign up for an audition, please contact us here. There is always a 3 hour workshop before each audition day where you may come and run through your monologues and songs and work with our accompanists or choreographers before your actual audition.

Our annual musical review A Night on Broadway is back and better than ever this year! In addition to the large assortment of hit songs and dances from some of the best shows to ever hit Broadway, there will be featuring a live and silent auction, an array of food from local favorites, and an entry into our biggest raffle yet with every ticket! Mark your calendars for May 14th, 2016. Please contact us here if you are interested in donating items for the auctions, items/baskets for the raffle or food services.

The last big announcement for now is something that we are so excited to be able to do. As some of you may know, the majority of THTC founders met in elementary or high school doing theater together because we were fortunate enough to have the opportunities to do theater there for us. When we started this company one of our very first goals was to be able to start a youth outreach program and we are pleased to announce that we will be having a 2016 Youth Summer Program for students ages 5-18. Students will fall into 1 of 3 age groups, Elementary (5-11), Junior High (12-15), and High School (15-18), and much like a summer camp, students will come Monday-Friday for 6 weeks and learn the various aspects of theater, but also what it takes from beginning to end as they put on their own (age group appropriate) shows as the end of the 6 weeks. This program will be entirely funded by donations and 100% Free. If you are interested in donating towards, signing your children up for, or volunteering/teaching at the Youth Summer Program please contact us here. (Please note that all Youth Outreach volunteers, employees, and teachers must pass a background test and drug test.)
