We are delighted to be hosting a fundraiser on Sunday, May 18th from 1-4pm for the Inter-Lakes Elementary School's Living Classroom Project to help them fund a greenhouse for the school.  

It will be an afternoon of family events, activities and entertainment.  Nature-based poetry written by the school’s students will be displayed along our nature trail and the outdoor stage will host entertainment including the school’s jazz band, The Educators (the school's staff rock band!), our own imrpov troupe Happenstance and more!  Other activities include a worm demonstration, plant your own seedling, face painting, theatre games with our education staff, a dress-up photo booth and a bake sale hosted by the PTO.

Since the demolition of our Education Building this Spring, our summer camp program will be moved to the Elementary School for this summer.  We are so grateful for the opportunity to use the school’s wonderful facilities that we wanted to give back to the school community and hope The Winnipesaukee Playhouse community will come out to support a great cause and have a ton of fun!

Sunday is also a great opportunity for past campers and those considering signing up for our Summer Program to come and meet our new Education Director, Timothy L'Ecuyer.  Timothy will be at the event leading games and answering any and all questions parents and potential campers may have!

The event is free to attend.  Donations will be gratefully accepted and donated to the greenhouse fund.  All children who attend will be entered into a raffle to win a free week of Winnipesaukee Playhouse Summer Camp with a $250 value!
Has your Winnipesaukee Playhouse Summer Camper been missing Miss Teghan as much as we have?!  Then you have to attend the "Fun" Raiser on Sunday!  Teghan is back from her first year at college and will leading theatre games and answering questions about summer camp!
The Winnipesaukee Playhouse's Teen Apprentice Company

This immersive and fully customizable summer experience, for students entering grades 9-12 and 2014 high school graduates, is not limited to the traditional 9:00-4:00 of our camp program.  It happens on both our main Meredith Campus and the grounds of Inter-Lakes Elementary School.  It offers company members the chance to interact with the working theatre professionals in residence at the Playhouse, observe rehearsals and performances, and produce their own shows.

Company members may apprentice in departments of interest at the Playhouse.  They may also assist master teachers in summer camps, have unprecedented access to Playhouse rehearsals and staff, take field trips, participate in workshops, get free tickets to shows, make connections with industry professionals and life-long friends!  

Apprentice Company members may have the opportunity to be on running crews or even fill small roles in Winnipesaukee Playhouse professional productions.  The AppCo will also rehearse and perform two productions of their own aimed at children to be performed on the Winnipesaukee Playhouse Stage!  

The Apprentice Company is chosen by interviews (tech/education students) and auditions (acting students).  Interviews and auditions will be held on June 10th and 11th from 6-9pm.  For more information, click here.

Wiley and the Hairy Man
by Suzan Zeder
Directed by Timothy L’Ecuyer

July 26th at 11am
The Hairy Man is out to get Wiley.  “He done got your Pappy and he’s gonna get you,” the swamp seems to gurgle at him.  Wiley must overcome him with help only from his Mammy, his dog, and his own smarts.  This African-American folktale set in the Deep South is a hilarious family-friendly story about growing up and learning to face our fears.

A donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster become friends after they all find themselves out of jobs on their farms.  The groups sets out to become musicians, but end up having a few unexpected adventures.  The Apprentice Company production of this well known classic is the world premier of a new delightful storytime theatre adaptation.  It is sure to please children of all ages!
