South Pacific on the Atlantic Dinner at the Franklin Oyster House


We've done it again, Seacoast Rep and Franklin Oyster House are teaming up for a new take on dinner and a show. 

Only this time, we're doing it backwards.

First you see the show at 2:00, the critically acclaimed South Pacific at Seacoast Rep. Once the show gets out, saunter your way down to The Franklin at 5:30 for a three course meal inspired by South Pacific by chef Matt Decker, who's been researching Pacific Island cuisine for the occasion.

The excellent staff at The Franklin will be turning out tuna poke, grilled wahoo, smoke roasted pork, bruleed pineapple, and more.

$60 per person, tickets to the matinee are included and will be held at Seacoast Rep. You MUST call The Franklin to reserve. 603-373-8500.


For more information, please visit the Franklin Oyster House website.

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 Rodgers and Hammerstein. Cast with talented performers from all over America and brilliantly directed by Danielle Howard, South Pacific is not to be missed. 

July 10th - August 2nd. Shows Thursday 7:30, Friday 8:00, Saturday 2:00 and 8:00, and Sunday at 2:00. Tickets available online, or through our box office at 603.433.4472

Proudly sponsored by DF Richard.

Avenue Q

Starring 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. And boy is it offensive.

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 more than 50 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. If you are easily offended, you will not like this show. We can't stress that enough.

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 2:00. 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.

Let's "B" Reel presents: Donnie Darko 7/26


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 Donnie Darko July 26th, 2015. For this particular screening, audience members are encouraged to dress up in costume, quote-a-long with the film, and partake in an interactive pre-show with Bunny Wonderland, Timothy Fife and special guests, Lady Luck Burlesque. 


“It was Tim’s idea to revive Donnie Darko…” says Knate Higgins, special series curator. “It’s been a long time coming for us, as the crowd has asked over and over again for Donnie Darko. It was a no brainer for the Let’s “B” Reel summer series.” 


Donnie Darko (2000) is a dark comedy starring Jake Gyllenhal, Patrick Swaze, Drew Barrymoore. Donnie Darko follows Donnie (Gyllenhal), a troubled teen who is having waking nightmares about time travel, quantum physics and a man in a Bunny suit named Frank. As Donnie follows his dark visions, he soon starts to learn the truth about his family, friends, and teachers. Hip and ever quotable, Donnie Darko smashed the independent film circuit in the early 2000’s, bringing dark comedy/science fiction to a new level of cool. At this screening, LBR is encouraging fans to dress up, and quote the night away in true Let’s “B” Reel fashion. 


“People asked for it, and we aim to please!” says Timothy Fife, co-director of LBR. “(Darko) lends itself perfectly for our summer series, we can’t wait to pack the house with loyal fans once again. And yes, there will be a bunny suit…”


Let’s “B” Reel presents Donnie Darko runs one night only Saturday July 26th at 7:30pm. Bar is open at 6PM. Advance tickets are $10, and day of show tickets are pay what you want. Seating is limited and due to high demand, advance purchase is recommended. Tickets may be purchased online at, in person at 125 Bow Street Portsmouth, NH 03801, or over the phone at603.433.4472.

"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."
