This month brings a “singular sensation”, a musical comedy murder, and a classic book turned stage play to New Hampshire’s stages. With plenty of drama, music and comedy in store this month, we should have something for everyone this month. So sit back, relax, and enjoy another monthly theater preview: Manchester Theater Examiner style!!!
First on the list is that “One Singular Sensation”: the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winning musical, A Chorus Line comes to Portsmouth’s Seacoast Repertory Theater beginning March 1st. The musical-which is to be directed by Chorus Line alumni and Seacoast area native Bryan Knowlton-tells the story of 17 chorus dancers auditioning for a Broadway musical; one by one, they reveal their histories, hopes, and fears. Packed with incredible dancing, a very touching story, and memorable characters, A Chorus Line is sure to be a poignant evening of theater for everyone.

Next up is The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, presented by the Milford Area Players. This hysterical comedy concerns a backer’s audition for a new Broadway musical; one by one, people turn up dead and lives are threatened as a vicious blizzard rages outside. Complete with a talented cast of performers from the local area, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is bound to be a sidesplitting comedy for anyone who dares to come.

Finally, The Rochester Opera House brings to life one of the most beloved American stories ever: To Kill a Mockingbird is the poignant story of Scout, a little girl growing up in the Deep South during the Great Depression; when a local citizen is accused of a horrendous crime, Scout and her family are launched into an emotional journey that will impact them and their small town forever. Based on the classic novel by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird is directed by Seacoast favorite Jonathan Rockwood Hoar. For more information, please visit http://www.rochesteroperahouse.com.
