Stay Tuned for our 2019 - 2020 Season

From Oct 11, 2019 to Jun 28, 2020

The 2019-20 Season has been shaped by Catherine Stewart in her new role as Associate Artistic Director for New Hampshire Theatre Project.  “The theme “Can one person make a difference? will carry through our MainStage, and into other areas of programming including classes and workshops,” explains Stewart. “At NHTP we’re talking 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 have 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. This theme allows us to continue that conversation with artists and audiences as we grow and change as an organization.”

“All our programs, whether professional MainStage Productions, classes and workshops, or series like Elephant-in-the-Room and Seacoast Sessions, are designed to compliment each other, and be an open avenue to the theatre no matter your age, interest, or commitment. You might also be looking for ways to make more connections with your community,” adds Stewart. Dates for the Signature Series are available at nhtheatreproject.org. 

New Hampshire Theatre Project will continue the new RUSH40 program which offers half-price tickets for all MainStage Productions for audience members under the age of 40 when purchased 30 minutes before curtain at the theatre. “We’re working hard to make sure that all individuals have an opportunity to participate in the arts, and we found that our programming was out-of-reach for the 20 and 30 year olds that are moving into Portsmouth,” explains Stewart. 

Memberships for the 2019-2020 season are available now, with subscriptions and single tickets for the Season going on sale on August 1.
