South Pacific

In the heat of WWII, lovers come together in an Island Paradise as prejudice and war threaten to tear them apart. Nellie, a nurse from Arkansas, falls in love with Emile, a French planter with children from a native mother. 


Meanwhile Lt. Joe Cable falls in love with Liat, a Tonkinese girl, but is torn by prejudice and duty. 

Join us for this powerful musical story of love in the face of war and hate by Rogers and Hammerstein. Cast with talented performers from all over America and brilliantly directed by Danielle Howard, South Pacific is not to be missed.

Avenue Q

AStarring Ben Hart of the Broadway International Touring Cast, the laugh-out-loud, Tony Award-winning musical comedy Avenue Q comes to the Seacoast Rep stage for it's Portsmouth debut, puppets and all.

Recent college grad, Princeton (a puppet), receives a good helping of heart-FELT (sorry) life lessons from a bunch of colorful characters (who are also puppets) after moving into a dingy apartment on Avenue Q. Everyone learns and sings and debates what the internet is for.

Our Creative Team, lead by Ben Hart and Brandon Mallard, have been working tirelessly for nearly 6 months creating all-original, expressive puppets entirely from reclaimed, recycled, and up-cycled materials.

Sesame Street this ain't. The show is probably most definitely not appropriate for young children (or young puppets) or easily offended people or puppets. Our puppet heroes say bad puppet words and explore adult puppet themes. Parents should use their discretion based on the maturity level of their children/puppet children.

Avenue Q runs from August 14th 2015 - Sept 13, 2015. Shows are Thursdays at 7:30, Fridays at 8:00, Saturdays at 2:00 and 8:00, and Sundays at 8:00. Tickets available here (be sure to scroll through to August) or through our box office at 603.433.4472. We recommend you get your tickets early. Seats, like the availability of affordable apartments in in New York City, are limited.

Into The Woods

How far would you go to make a wish come true?

From the mind of Broadway Legend Stephen Sondheim comes a provocative, twisted fairy tale that asks exactly that. This intimate, streamlined staging of the Tony-Award winning musical sees each actor playing multiple parts from Grimm's fairy tales, bringing the world of Into the Woods to vivid life on our stage.   

Directed with unique vision by award-winning director Bob Vernon, and cast with a collection of the regions finest performers, Into the Woods is sure to challenge and inspire. Tickets are on sale now. 

 

PRAISE FOR INTO THE WOODS:

"Everything about Vernon's direction is right. Character development is sharp, staging smart, the movement fluid and interesting....Into The Woods is a winner." - SeacoastOnline

 

Nightmare on Elm Street 2 with MARK PATTON

Saturday, June 20th 8PM

Seacoast Repertory Theatre and Let’s “B” Reel are proud to announce that their award winning Red Light series will be presenting the cult classic Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddys Revenge, with the star of the film, Mark Patton June 20th, 2015. In addition to the extra special screening, Patton has invited the Let’s ‘B’ Reel audience to partake in the live filming of the documentary “There Is No Jesse”. 

“We are thrilled to have Mark on board for our screening” says Knate Higgins, special series curator for The Rep. “Tim and I have always wanted to pay homage to the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise after our smashing success with Ari Lehman (The first Jason Vorhees) and our Friday the 13th screening last summer.  This particular film was the obvious choice for us, as it’s the most audacious and most...ahem…flamboyant of the series.” 

Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge picks up where the first film left of. In true Horror sequel fashion, Freddy Krueger (scorned supernatural monster who kills teenagers in their dreams) is after a new group of teens, singling out Jesse (Patton) as his next chosen vessel for dream induced terror. The film has been noted as the most anticipated sequel in the horror film industry. But, big budgets could not save NOES2 from sloppy directing and shoddy writing. The sequel is best known for its homoerotic sub text, that Patton (who in turn, is gay) was in on, making for some of the most cringe worthy and giggle inducing scenes in horror film franchise history. Patton has made his legacy as the first gay horror film star. 

In addition to the usual pre-show and talk back with Bunny Wonderland (Higgins) and Timothy Fife, Audiences are encouraged to fill The Rep for the live filming of the documentary “There is No Jesse” the night of the screening. The piece being filmed documents the life of Mark Patton and his struggle as the first gay horror film star in the 1980s during the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis. Patton chose The Rep and Let’s “B” Reel as a featured portion of the documentary to showcase his live appearances and how he still works with fans of the film. 

“To have Mark on hand is one thing” say’s Timothy Fife, co-director of Let’s “B” Reel. “But to be a part of something even larger, and help with the filming of his documentary? It’s an honor for us here at Let’s “B” Reel and our audiences. We want to see all our fans come out for this one. It’s going to be huge…”

Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge is graciously sponsored by Jet Pack comics

"The theater recently leased a 1,200-square-foot space at 1 Raynes Ave. in Portsmouth’s North End and an open house is scheduled for Friday, May 1. The space, a former dance studio, will act as the Rep’s annex, an additional site for rehearsals, classes, and other programs. It’s the next step in the Rep’s reinvention, which began last fall when the nonprofit theater nearly closed due to financial difficulties."
