NHTP 2023-2024 Season Preview

2013-2014 Season

From Sep 13, 2013 to May 31, 2014

2013-2014 SEASON


November 15 - December 1, 2013 – Six Characters in Search of an Author by Luigi Pirandello
Now considered one of the most influential plays in the history of world literature, this extraordinary script incited audience riots at its 1921 premiere. Pirandello shows how illusion mixes with reality, and how people see the same thing in many different ways.

January 10 - 26, 2014 – Finding the Prince by Genevieve Aichele, CJ Lewis & Shay Willard
Finding the Prince follows three soldiers and one journalist who have crashed in the desert during a nameless war. As they struggle to survive, they begin to read a tattered novel given to one of them by a dying soldier. Each character begins a journey towards coming to terms with their own “little prince,” the deepest, sweetest part of us who knows that “what is most important is unseen.”


December 6 - 7, 2013 – Youth Rep Scene Study

April 4 - 6, 2014 – The Sheriff of Nottingham by Michael Megliola

Presented by the Junior Repertory Company. Caught between loyalty to the absent King Richard and demands from the greedy Prince John, the Sheriff of Nottingham finds himself playing a cat and mouse game with one Robin Hood and a band of merry men!   

May 16 - 25, 2014 – Arsenic and Old Lace by Joseph Kesselring
Presented by the Senior Repertory Company, Arsenic and Old Lace is the zany story of Mortimer Brewster, his brother who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, and his adorable two aunts who have a knack for charity work (or murder by another name).


September 22 - October 4, 2013 – Dreaming Again by Genevieve Aichele
A two-week tour, with 19 performances at 17 schools and community organizations around New Hampshire. Dreaming Again features the stories of New Hampshire immigrants and refugees over the past 100 years
