NHTP Covid-19 Protocols and FAQ'S

2019 - 2020 Season

From Oct 11, 2019 to Jun 28, 2020

New Hampshire Theatre Project's 2019-2020 Season Video


The 2019-20 Season theme “Can one person make a difference? carried the MainStage productions, and other areas of programming including classes and workshops, we talked a lot about our place in Portsmouth, in the state and beyond - what difference do we make? The program committee was drawn to plays that had strong leading characters that make us laugh, or cry, or jump for joy as they make a difference in the world.  We chose plays that challenge our thinking of race, gender, the environment, economics and more.
