ANDY’S ANNOUNCES EXCITING ADDITIONS TO THE 2015 SEASON!
With the departure of Artistic Director DJ Potter, Andy’s has engaged Interim Producing Artistic Director John McCluggage to guide the 2015 season while we wait for the new permanent Producing Artistic Director to join the team in mid-summer. Announcement of Andy’s permanent new leader is expected by July. All rehearsal and performance schedules remain the same for 2015, but some of the shows have changed. We are thrilled to offer a Shakespeare Remix – Andy’s Midsummer Night Dreaming for our touring show, the award-winning musical Into the Woods Jr., along with Jared Mezzocchi’s The Kid of Billy the Kid. We also have the John C. Russell Playwriting Lab, and the all new Film Workshop directed by JP Sarro! Andy’s kids can participate in multiple mainstage productions, provided schedules don’t overlap. Enrollment in all programs is still open. Enrollment closes for show #1 on June 1st, and for all other programs on June 25th. Scholarships are also still available, thanks to a generous grant from the Agnes M. Lindsay Trust.
The best and most effective way that you can help Andy’s is to donate. We still have things to accomplish to produce our season and fulfill our vision, and so your contribution of any size is greatly appreciated.
Andy’s is an innovative summer youth theater located in southern New Hampshire. Every summer we produce original works that are performed by local artists aged eight to eighteen. Whether you’re very familiar with us, or finding us for the first time, we hope you find all the information you need. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us.
Our Artistic Vision
Andy’s Summer Playhouse believes a young person’s mind is ever creating and embracing new ideas. As a children’s theater, it is our responsibility to not only nurture but also meet and challenge our participants’ ongoing creative energy. Andy’s does this by producing new work. Our original productions strive to encompass an amalgam of forward thinking artistic mediums including, but not limited to, multimedia, dance, puppetry, and music. By utilizing these various art forms within the spectrum of theater, we offer productions that can live outside of the box and thus be in step with a young person’s way of looking at the world while at the same time encouraging them to push forward to new exciting ideas.
