The Winnipesaukee Playhouse will be alive with the sound of music… theatre music, that is, when we hold our first Broadway Idol musical theatre competition on Saturday, September 21 at 7:30pm.  Fifteen local teens and adults will be singing their hearts out for the title of Broadway Idol!  This will be a great night of entertainment with the added suspense of a nail-biting competition!
Based on American Idol, this one-night only event will feature performances from classic and contemporary musicals including Funny Girl, Mamma Mia!, Shrek and many more.   Taking on the roles of Simon, Paula and Randy will be three well-respected musical theatre professionals:

Nancy Barry, Producing Artistic Director at Interlakes Summer Theatre

Joel Mercier, Artistic Director of NH Theatre Factory and Resident Music Director at the New London Barn Playhouse

Keith Weirich, Artistic Director for the Peacock Players. 

The judges will offer commentary after each contestant’s turn and will vote at the end of the evening.  However, the audience will also help decide who will win the title of Broadway Idol by purchasing “votes” for their favorites.  All proceeds from the admission sales ($10 per person) and voting tickets ($1 per vote) will support our theatre and educational programming.
Prizes for Idol winners include a $100 Tanger Outlets Gift Card (teen first prize) and an overnight stay at Mill Falls at the Lake plus a $50 Gift Card from Canoe in Center Harbor (adult first prize). 

The grand prize will be a Weekend Theatre Getaway for two including a two-night stay at the luxury Westminster Hotel in Livingston NJ, plus two tickets to the world premiere of Honeymoon in Vegas The Musical starring Tony Danza at the Paper Mill Theatre in Millburn NJ. 

We extend a huge thank you to the Paper Mill Playhouse, Tanger Outlets, Mill Falls at the Lake and Magic Foods Restaurant Group for donating prizes.
Tickets can be ordered by calling (603) 279-0333 or by using a credit card at
