PAPA Presents: Pinnochio


Have you ever been made of wood? Have you ever been told, “you’re different”? If your name is Pinocchio, then yes you have. You must remember the story of the small wooden boy? Well, now he is a teen- age wooden boy, just starting high school. He is picked on, he is taunted, all because he’s made of wood, and, well, his nose grows when he tells a lie. This is what would have happened if Pinnocchio had never become a “real boy”.
Join Seacoast Rep and the Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts for the world premier of Pinnochio, an original musical by Miles Burns.
Shows run October 17, 18, 24, and 25 at 11am. Tickets are available online, or through our box office at 603.433-4472.

Improv 101 with Stranger Than Fiction

Learn the basics of improv, during this 6-week class with Stranger Than Fiction veteran cast member David Chevalier! Areas of focus will include character and object-work, relationships to your environment and fellow players, finding the emotional basis of a scene, and the improv philosophy of YES, AND. By the end of class, you’ll be familiar with basic concepts and have new confidence at work or at play. Emphasis is on creating a fun, supportive environment. No experience necessary! Feeling timid about your comedy prowess? Well, do not worry! Stranger Than Fiction classes do not have a requirement for students to “be funny,” we are looking for students who want to learn and are willing to play, create, and imagine. So get ready to meet new people, share joy & laughter, and mostly have a great time!

The class is for adults only, 18 or older. The fee will be $150 for the six-week course.

Conveniently located in Portsmouth, NH at Rep North, 1 Raynes Avenue.

Class begins SUNDAY 10/18/15 @ 2:00PM and will continue for 6 weeks through 11/22/15. Each class is two hour long session. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes you can move in!
