The Producers

5:00 PM - Meredith

Bialystock and Bloom! Those names should strike terror and hysteria in anyone familiar with Mel Brooks’ classic cult comedy film. Now as a big Broadway musical, The Producers once again sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive “Springtime For Hitler”), hiring a director, raising the money and finally going to prison for their misdeeds is a lesson in broad comic construction. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends.With a truly hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan (Annie) and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks, The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender!”

Jewelry Demonstration with Michelle Kolb

Without formal training she taught herself beadwork and incorporated precious and semi-precious stones. Her focus turned to metalsmithing and under the tutelage of League of NH Craftsmen jeweler Karen Mitchell, Michelle learned the skills needed to become a juried member herself. Self-described as “feminine and organic with Victorian influences” her work evokes a timeless elegance. Using silver, precious and semi-precious stones, pearls and resin Michelle creates a 20th Century take on a classic style. The mission of the League of NH Craftsmen is to encourage, nurture and promote the creation, use and preservation of fine contemporary and traditional craft through the inspiration and education of artists and the broader community. Those who wish to participate in the raffle must stop at the store to fill out a ticket. Any questions about this free demonstration or other events please contact The League of NH Craftsmen Meredith Gallery at 603-279-7920 or stop in the store at 279 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith, NH.

Father of the Bride Presented by The Majestic Theatre

7:00 PM - Derry

“THE MAJESTIC THEATRE WILL PRESENT FATHER OF THE BRIDE ON JULY 29, 30 & 31”. About the show: A Comedy by CAROLINE FRANCKE From the novel by Edward Streeter, illustrated by Gluyas Williams. Mr. Banks learns that one of the young men he has seen occasionally about the house is about to become his son-in-law. Daughter Kay announces the engagement out of nowhere. Mrs. Banks and her sons are happy, but Mr. Banks is in a dither. The groom-to-be, Buckley Dunstan, appears on the scene and Mr. Banks realizes that the engagement is serious. Buckley and Kay don’t want a “big” wedding—just a simple affair with a few friends! We soon learn, however, that the “few” friends idea is out. Then trouble really begins. The guest list grows larger each day, a caterer is called in, florists, furniture movers and dressmakers take over, and the Banks household is soon caught in turmoil—not to mention growing debt. When Kay, in a fit of temper, calls off the wedding, everyone’s patience snaps. But all is set right, and the wedding (despite more last-minute crises) comes off beautifully. In the end, the father of the bride is a happy, proud man, glad that the wedding is over, but knowing too that it was worth all the money and aggravation to start his daughter off so handsomely on the road to married life. Majestic’s Father of the Bride is directed by Carole Neveux of Concord and stars and ensemble cast. Special thanks to Birch Hill Terrace for sponsoring this production. Join us for “Father of the Bride” on Friday & Saturday July 29 & 30 at 7pm and Sunday, July 31 at 2pm. Performances will be held at The Derry Opera House 29 West Broadway Derry.

Mr. Banks learns that one of the young men he has seen occasionally about the house is about to become his son-in-law. Daughter Kay announces the engagement out of nowhere. Mrs. Banks and her sons are happy, but Mr. Banks is in a dither. The groom-to-be, Buckley Dunstan, appears on the scene and Mr. Banks realizes that the engagement is serious. Buckley and Kay don’t want a “big” wedding—just a simple affair with a few friends! We soon learn, however, that the “few” friends idea is out. Then trouble really begins. The guest list grows larger each day, a caterer is called in, florists, furniture movers and dressmakers take over, and the Banks household is soon caught in turmoil—not to mention growing debt. When Kay, in a fit of temper, calls off the wedding, everyone’s patience snaps. But all is set right, and the wedding (despite more last-minute crises) comes off beautifully. In the end, the father of the bride is a happy, proud man, glad that the wedding is over, but knowing too that it was worth all the money and aggravation to start his daughter off so handsomely on the road to married life. Majestic’s Father of the Bride is directed by Carole Neveux of Concord and stars and ensemble cast. Special thanks to Birch Hill Terrace for sponsoring this production. Join us for “Father of the Bride” on Friday & Saturday July 29 & 30 at 7pm and Sunday, July 31 at 2pm. Performances will be held at The Derry Opera House 29 West Broadway Derry. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors 65 and above and $10 for youth 17 and under. Tickets can be purchased by calling the box office at 603-669-7469, online at www.majestictheatre.net or at the door prior to the performance.

Succulent Terrarium Workshop

12:30 PM - Manchester

All materials for one basic terrarium will be included (a glass piece, drainage stones, soil, and three small succulent or sedum plants).

If participants bringing their own glass, something with dimensions around 5 inches wide would be appropriate.
