Sarah Shanelaris Loved CATS!

I have just been treated to an amazing production of Cats.

I went because I fell in love with the show as a child who saw the original in London with Elaine Paige a few times (I’m English, now living here in Meredith.) Your production was wonderful and comparable in every way.

You gave me a lovely evening out.

Thank you, and good luck ongoing to the talented cast.

John Powers Sings Interlakes Theatre Praises

We attended our first Interlakes Theater performance, “South Pacific” on Thursday.   It was outstanding!   You have done remarkable work putting together the theater company.   Your casting could not have been better.  Since Boston and Meredith are about equidistant from our house in Amherst, NH, my wife Barbara and I marvel at the difference in cost between a Boston-based production and Interlakes-based production.   We believe the quality of your production is equivalent to those we have attended in Boston, but your intimate venue and cost are remarkably better.   Thanks so much to you and the theater company for such a wonderful performance.   We look forward to Cats and Gypsy.   I see by your credits that you once acted in Gypsy.   You could no doubt step in and do it again!    The lakes region of NH is fortunate to have someone of your caliber running the show.

The McFadden’s love Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!

I want to tell you how much Duncan and I enjoyed the final performance of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”  Neither of us knew anything about the plot or the music, so it was a total surprise and delight.  The acting, dancing, and singing was superb, and what a treat to hear clearly(from the F row) every word sung!  Thanks to a new sound system finally?!  I still can’t comprehend how such a huge cast maneuvered so effortlessly and quickly about the stage!

Interlakes Planning “Vintage Variety Extravaganza

IMG_0567

Pat Kelly & Chris Kelly, Local Celebrities, will MC the Vintage Variety Extravaganza, a community talent show March 4th & 5th, at the newly renovated Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium.

The Interlakes Summer Theatre will be presenting a community talent show on Saturday, March 4th at 5:30 and Sunday, March 5th at 2:00 and that show will be hosted by Pat Kelly, Radio Celebrity of WEMJ/Binnie Media and his celebrity brother, Chris Kelly, Remax/Greater Meredith Program, et al.

Producer Nancy Barry explained, “This whole idea grew out of a musical theatre class I taught for “older adults”. It was really interesting for me to work with adults versus kids. For some it was just a hobby, some an item on their bucket list. Everyone had a different priority, but I think everyone learned something about themselves or about how performers approach their work–it was fun!”

“I had to laugh”,  continued Barry, “when one of the performers expressed concerned that her material wasn’t really “vintage” enough to go in the show.  I had to explain, that actually it was the performers that were supposed to be vintage”.

“There are a lot of talented people here in the Lakes Region. Not just singers. I have an actor who impersonates Carol Channing, Ethel Merman and Cher…We have a husband and wife who do music and comedy—billed as The Smothers Brothers meets George and Gracie…and there are a few other fabulous surprises…but I don’t want to disclose just yet!”

This talent show will be a fundraiser for the Interlakes Summer Theatre to help defray the costs of royalties. All tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased by calling 603 707-6035 or online at interlakestheatre.com.

Footloose Opens Tuesday August 9th!

20160728_170645-1 web

Shelly Walsh, Meghan McCandless, Mary Hannah Dober, and Caitlin Donahue (originally of Portsmouth) appear in “Footloose” at the Interlakes Summer Theatre, Aug 9-14.

Interlakes Theatre is finishing off this summer’s season with a show that will be performed for the first time ever in the NH Lakes Region, Footloose, opening on August 9. This classic tale of teenage rebellion and repression features incredible choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren McCormack and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he’s in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can’t quite believe he’s living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. However, there is one small pleasure: Ariel Moore, a troubled but lovely blonde with a jealous boyfriend and a father who is a Bible-thumping minister responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople. Performances will be at Interlakes Auditorium One Laker Lane, on Tuesday August 9 thru August 14. Performances are 7:30 pm Tuesday through Saturday and 5 pm on Sunday. Matinees are Wednesday and Thursday at 2 pm. Tickets are available at the box office Monday-Saturday 10 am-5 pm and Sundays 12 pm-4 pm. Ticket prices are $25-$33. Call (603) 707-6035 to reserve your seats. Don’t miss out on this exciting final show of the season!

Interlakes Summer Theatre has brought Broadway to this vacation resort town for locals and vacationers alike for the past nine years. Each summer, the producing director, Nancy Barry, leads an artistic team from Boston and New York in presenting a wide variety of musicals.

The Haye’s on The Addams Family!

I just wanted to say thank you for such a fun time at the Theater.
We saw The Adams Family and it was super.
We will be back next season.
The Hayes’s

Barbara on Not Fade Away!

Last night’s performance was exceptional! Everyone was terrific, but the three main performers were more talented than the original stars ever were–just couldn’t get enough of it! On another “note,” please consider Austin Price for doing Elvis. Besides resembling him, he has the facial expressions and body movements down. He is a dead ringer.

Cindy on Sister Act!

Hi Nancy,

“Sister Act” was definitely one of the best shows I have ever seen at Interlakes Theatre. Incredible choreography, awesome acting and singing by all the actors, perfection in every detail, and an incredible energy level sustained throughout the entire show. The entire cast portrayed to the audience what fun they were having!!!! The stain glass backdrop was exquisite, awesome(how many hours of painstaking painting was involved?!) and mesmerizing. And, of course, you were fantastic as always.(and I’m sure totally exhausted by now!!!!) Hats off to everyone involved in the production. There were so many details and humorous character acting to watch that I had hoped to return for a 2nd performance, but unfortunately my wish could not be realized, and the last performance is in 15 minutes!!! However, our Hanover friends were so impressed that they probably will buy flex tickets for next season. Yay!!!!!

Were you able to locate a suitcase style record player(like I had in college!)? Probably you have by now, but if not, I learned last evening that one of my neighbors has one and maybe two. Let me know if you still need one.

Congrats to all.

Cindy McFadden

“Mr. Davis, a Night with Sammy”  is the new Sammy Davis Jr, musical show. Audiences will be transported to the Las Vegas Strip and you’re sure to believe you’re sitting at the Sands Hotel singing, swinging, and crooning with Sammy. The show highlights classic hits like “Candyman”, “Mr. Bojangles”, “Once in a Lifetime”, and “What Kind of Fool Am I?”.

“Kee is astonishingly like Sammy Davis, Jr. in both song styling and body language”, says Interlakes Theatre producer, Nancy Barry. “The show isn’t about imitation. I’m just being Solomon on stage”, says Kee, who plays Sammy. “I sing his songs and add a few Sammy Davisisms here and there. I don’t believe anyone can impersonate him. He was one of a kind. I just wanna make the world taste good like he did.”

Solomon performed his one-man show here in October 2013 and since has continued the development with help from NYC producers and directors.  He returns with his Musical Director, Joshua Stecher-Ross and Interlakes favorites David LeBlanc (“Dave, the drummer”) and bassist Dr. Anthony Varga.  “Everywhere I go in town, folks have asked me to bring him back, so on my recent trip to NYC, Solomon & I sat down together and made a plan!”, says Barry.

The Wiz – August 12th – August 17th

The Wiz press releaseThis musical is adapted from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.  As you probably remember it begins on a tumbledown farm in Kansas.

It takes the story of Dorothy and her friends and updates it with fantastic POP and R&B music written by Charlie Smalls and Luther Vandross. We will be taking the audience on a streetwise fun and hip journey through OZ, but it’s also a lovely story of faith, friendship and family.”

Hello Dolly at Interlakes Summer Theatre

Dolly photo #2Well, hello Dolly!  From July 29th through August 10th you’ll be able to laugh and sing along with one of Broadway’s most popular musicals as you follow the adventures of Dolly Levi in a whirlwind race around New York at the turn of the century.

The Interlakes Summer Theatre Producing Director, Nancy Barry (from Meredith) will be playing the lead role as Mrs. Dolly Gallagher Levi, a mischievous but very successful matchmaker. Other cast members include Charles Baran as Horace Vandergelder, the rich hay and feed store owner in Yonkers. Horace’s head clerk, Cornelius Hackl, will be played by Dan Lusardi and his assistant, Barnaby Tucker by John Findlay (a recent Interlakes graduate). The beautiful Widow Molloy, who owns an upscale hat shop in New York City, will be played by Ashley Landroche (also from Meredith). And finally, Widow Molloy’s assistant, Minnie Fay will be portrayed by Gabrielle Petrosino while J. Spencer Dean takes on the role of Ambrose Kemper a struggling artist.

The story centers on Mrs. Levi’s efforts to marry Half-Millionaire Horace Vandergelder. She’s been dreaming about ways to use his fortune and share it with others. Dolly lives by the words of her late husband, Ephraim. “Money, pardon the expression, is like manure, it’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around, encouraging young things to grow”. On the way to capturing Horace’s heart, her match-making skills entangle others in her web. She finds suitable mates everywhere she goes. Some of her targets are reluctant, some eager and some just plain terrified.

Of course the story has a happy ending and Dolly “gets her man”, and the cash!

This musical comedy won 10 Tony Awards during its run on Broadway from 1964 to 1970. The record lasted for over 35 years.

The music and lyrics were written by Claude-Michel Schonbert and Alain Boublil. (You may recognize these names from Les Miserables.)

This epic musical love story is another moving testament to the human spirit. It tells the passionate tale of a young Vietnamese bar girl, Kim, played by Quynh-My.

The noise of helicopter blades brings audiences closer to Chris and Kim as the Viet Cong close in on Saigon. With little time Chris has some painful decisions to make.

Miss Saigon played on Broadway between 1991 and 2001 with almost 4100 shows performed. This brilliant musical has been seen in over 300 cities in 15 countries. The London stage is currently doing a revival with opening day ticket sales setting a new world record. And now it will be in Meredith.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum Opens!

Forum PicA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart.

Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus (251–183 BC), specificallyPseudolusMiles Gloriosus and Mostellaria, the musical tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The plot displays many classic elements of farce, including puns, the slamming of doors, cases of mistaken identity (frequently involving characters disguising themselves as one another), and satirical comments on social class. The title derives from the line that vaudeville comedians often used to begin a story: “A funny thing happened on the way to the theater”.

Pulitzer Prize Winner “A Chorus Line”

The Interlakes Summer Theatre is presenting “A Chorus Line” for One week only at the air conditioned Interlakes HS Auditorium. The show with music by Marvin Hamlisch was originally staged by the brilliant director/choreographer, Michael Bennett. The book by Ed Kleban, was assembled from the true life stories and back stories of the original Broadway dancers who were actually in the Broadway hit in 1975. The most memorable musical number “What I Did For Love” is now a theatre classic and sums it all up for anyone who has ever been a performer.

The combination of these triple threats (actor/singer/dancers) and the live band make this a funny and often compelling piece about the joys and struggles of a professional dancer in NYC.

This production will directed by Brian Feehan. He will be assisted by Inaki Baldassare. Mindy Cimini is the Music Director, DW Withrow will create the 1970’s style dancewear and Kasey Sheehan will do her magic with lighting with Nicholas Trimper debuting as Set Designer.

Buddy Holly Story Sure to be a Rockin’ Revival

To round out the summer 2011 season Interlakes Summer Theatre  will bring back popular audience favorite The Buddy Holly Story, a musical revue based around  the songs of Buddy Holly. Nathan Riley will be reprising his role as Buddy Holly and  Jason Burrow will be reprising his role as The Big Bopper.

Riley reflects on his first experience with doing Buddy Holly Story four years ago “The experience was heightened by the fact that Nancy was able to bring in so many talented and versatile actor/musicians to back me up and actually make me look better than I actually am.  Brian Feehan’s sharp fast pace direction of the piece was also an amazing addition to the whole experience.”  He continued by saying “Coming back to reprise the production is going to be a joy ride. I already know the songs so I can leave that stress behind me and really dig in deep to the heart of the character and hopefully bring this musical legend back to life for a week in August.”

The Buddy Holly Story returns for one week only August 16-21st at Interlakes Summer Theatre located at 1 Laker Lane in Meredith.  Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday at 2:00 and Sunday at 7:00pm. This show will have you singing and dancing in the aisles. It’s not to be missed!

Come to the Cabaret in Meredith!

The Kander and Ebb classic Cabaret will hit the Interlakes Summer Theatre stage August 2nd. This musical, set in 1930’s Berlin during the rise of the Third Reich tells the story of an American writer, Clifford Bradshaw, who travels to Berlin to write a novel. It is there that he meets and eventually falls in love with, Sally Bowles, a British cabaret singer at the Kit Kat Club.  This show is a wonderful mixture of powerful songs and entertaining dance numbers.

The role of Sally Bowles will be played by Dara Hartman. In developing her character, Hartman finds research important. She has been reading Christopher Isherwood’s Berlin Stories for the past month, gaining insight into her character, Sally Bowles. What stands out to Hartman about the character is, “Her air of not caring what people think, her attempts to shock and stimulate. It’s going to be a lot of fun!” She looks most forward to singing the finale song Cabaret, which she says, “… is at an integral point of the character’s emotional journey.”

Sue Boland makes her Interlakes Theatre debut as Fraulein Schneider, the owner of the boarding house where Clifford Bradshaw stays. “I’ve been lucky enough to see several fine actresses tackle the role in both the original and revised version, but I’ve always wanted to see more realism, more understanding of what was behind Schneider’s (song) So What!”. When it comes to developing her character Boland explained “I’ve been reading the “Berlin Stories” and have basically learned three different versions of the script.  Each version has given a slightly different emphasis to the story, so I’ve been lucky enough to have already been presented with several different sides to Fraulein Schneider.”  She continued by saying “I’ve played with numerous ways to get a particular thought across to the audience, thought about how I might look, what age I’ll be, etc  and then I try to erase everything and allow my director and the relationships I have with my fellow actors to shape, in this case, the Fraulein Schneider that you will see and get to know better.”

The show will also feature Matthew Rickard as the Emcee, the role made famous by  Joel Grey in the film and Broadway stage production.  Rickard is well known in Meredith, NH for playing Richie Valens in The Buddy Holly Story.

Cabaret will be performed at  Interlakes Summer Theatre (at the ILHS  at 1 Laker Lane in Meredith August 2nd-14th.  Come out and enjoy a love story like you’ve never seen before. Featuring such show stopping numbers as Wilkommen, Don’t Tell Mama, Cabaret, and Maybe This Time.

All three actors making their Interlakes Summer Theatre debut in Hairspray and could not be more excited.

Catherine Gallagher is a recent graduate of Point Park University in Pittsburgh and looks forward to playing one of her dream roles. “Tracy is a role played by a true triple threat.

To be considered among these few talented women is an honor.”She continued by saying “Playing Tracy is absolutely thrilling, because she’s such a take-charge person.

Classic Musical, Man of La Mancha, at Interlakes Summer Theatre

Scott Sowinski and Sheira Feuerstein appear in Man of La Mancha

On Tuesday July 5th, the Interlakes Summer Theatre will open “Man of LaMancha” the second production of the 2011 season.  This production features Scott Sowinski as Don Quixote, previously seen here in Anything Goes and 25th AnnualPutnam County Spelling Bee and Sheira Feuerstein who returns this year as Aldonza, after appearing last year as Mama Morton in Chicago and  Nimue in Camelot.

In an interview Feuerstein expressed her thoughts about the play and her role in it. “I’m completely captivated by the music and lyrics, and I’m humbled by the ideas that Cervantes puts forth in its story.  I think we’ve all been in a place where we’ve grappled with how we feel about the world.  I certainly have.  I’ve heard the mantra that if you just believe that your dreams will come true, then they will, and you’ll be happy.  Well, by it’s definition, the “impossible dream” that Don Quixote is chasing will not be realized.  And yet, he is the happiest and noblest character in this story because he lives his ideals, despite the fact that his surrounding reality is, objectively, terrible.” She continued  by saying  “The character I play, Aldonza, is his polar opposite: deeply rooted in her reality and resigned that ideals are not worth having — that “the world’s a dung heap, and we are maggots who crawl on it.”  Her journey is a challenging one; how do you come out of that feeling when it is so ingrained in and supported by your reality?  The very act of just lifting yourself up (or letting someone lift you up), and living by the noblest ideals you can imagine, despite the total futility in it, is overwhelmingly inspiring for me.”

Producing Director,  Nancy Barry, stated that  Man of La Mancha is one of her favorite shows. “It is both simple and complex.  In many ways it is the story of the “everyman”.”  She continued by saying “And I think people forget how funny this show is.  Don Quixote is a madman and his life philosophies and friendship with his squire, Sancho are often hilarious. The score is unforgettable with songs like “Little Bird, Little Bird” and “The Impossible Dream“.

Man Of La Mancha is sponsored by Hart’s Turkey Farm and will play July 5th through the 17th at the air conditioned Interlakes Summer Theatre (ILHS), 1 Laker Lane in Meredith.  Show times are Tuesday- Saturday 7:30pm  and Sundays at 7:00pm with matinees on Wednesday and Thursday at 2:00pm.

Guys and Dolls to start off Interlakes Summer Theatre 2011 Season

Chris Burgdorff and Phil Bacotti appear in Guys and Dolls

Interlakes Summer Theatre opens their 2011 Summer Season on June 21st with the classic musical Guys and Dolls.  The show features Katie Clark as Miss Adelaide, Cary Mitchell as Nathan Detroit, Caitlin Mesiano as Sarah Brown and Matt Zimmerman as Sky Masterson.

Meisano is very excited about playing the role of Sarah Brown, “So often actors who tackle this role, fall into the ingénue trap and she can seem rather two dimensional. I think there is so much more depth to her character that I can’t wait to bring to life. I’ve found that she is not just your ordinary “goody two-shoes,” but that she has a real fire in her.” Mesiano went on  to  say  “This show is so special, too because it presents us with so many of the same challenges we face today; for example falling for the wrong person, then obsessing over how they wouldn’t be wrong if you could only change and mold them into what you want them to be. But as we learn time and time again, you can’t change people. This lesson of acceptance has really stood the test of time, and I think it’s why so many people can relate to the characters in this show.”

The Meredith Bay Colony Club is the proud community sponsor of the Interlakes Summer Theatre and it’s production of  “Guys and Dolls”.

Guys and Dolls will be performed June 21st-July 3rd at Interlakes Summer Theatre, 1 Laker Lane in Meredith.  Show times are Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30pm, Sundays at 7:00pm, with matinees on Wednesday and Thursday at 2:00pm. Please note; due to the auditorium being booked, there will be no matinee on Wednesday June 22nd for Guys and Dolls. Come out and enjoy this classic musical in our lovely air conditioned auditorium!

Get Ready for Interlakes Summer Theatre’s 2011 Season

Get ready for another season of amazing shows at Interlakes Summer Theatre.

The Main Stage Company will be performing Guys and Dolls, Man of La Mancha, Hairspray, Cabaret and Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story.

When it comes to show selection, Artistic Director Nancy Barry offered the following insight; “We decide shows by surveying audience members, combining the tried and true with the new.”  Barry considers many things when selecting shows. One key aspect is balance so Barry chooses shows which are not all from the same time period as well as performances that effectively use all the company members.  Secondly, Barry makes certain that they will be able to carry the show technically and talent wise.  Lastly,  availability also comes into play as many other local theatres are in competition for the same actors.

Man of La Mancha is Barry’s favorite show. “It’s really inspiring, it’s intelligent and it is surprisingly funny- very witty and high comedy.  Audience members have told Barry that Guys and Dolls is their all-time favorite show.  This summer Barry is reviving Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story due to its popularity in the 2008 inaugural season.  It was a big hit and audience members were dancing in the aisles. Barry expects Buddy – The Buddy Holly Story to sell out.  Familiar faces, Jason Burrow, Matt Rickard and Nathan Riley will be back to reprise their roles as the Big Bopper, Richie Valens and Buddy Holly respectively.

The Youth Theatre Company will be performing Aladdin, The Aristocats, Tinkerbell and Peter and The Wolf. Rachel Witkovsky is the artistic director for the Youth Theatre program. The company consists of middle school and high school students ages 12-18.   When it comes to choosing shows,Witkovsky  said “ I know that we usually like to pick at least one show that is more for the girls, one that is more for the boys, and one that meets in the middle.”  Witcovsky looks forward to all the shows although she has favorites; “Aladdin and The AristoCats were two of my favorite movies growing up and my parents and I used to listen to Peter and the Wolf on cassette tape in the car.”  Tinkerbell is ’Witkovsky s original play. When it comes to directing her own work she says,  “I’m really excited about the opportunity. I’m glad that I have someone else helping me, though, because sometimes when you work too closely with your own script. You don’t find that extra something from the text that a fresh pair of eyes will find.  Sometimes I need to just take a step back from my writings and ask someone else what they think or how they envision a scene.”

First time actress Caitlin Mesiano, a recent graduate of Pace University, is thrilled to be performing in Meredith this summer “I am very excited to be spending my summer in Meredith, as I have heard it is a lovely town, and probably not too much unlike my hometown of Center Moriches on Long Island. I think Meredith with be a great fit for me!”  Mesiano is playing Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls and looks forward to playing the role.“I am thrilled to be playing such a classically elegant role, especially because much of musical theater these days has been so contemporized. Don’t get me wrong, I love contemporary shows, but there’s just something about taking on a role in a show that has so much history that I find refreshing and exciting.”

Scott Sowinski returns for his third season at  Interlakes Summer Theatre. He previously appeared in 2008 as Sir Evelyn Oakleigh in Anything Goes and Vice Principal Panch in 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee in 2010.  This year he is playing Don Quixote in Man of LaMancha “Don Quixote is one of the best male leads written. It is a huge challenge and one that I hope will be very rewarding. I think that the music is fantastic and it is a beloved piece of theatre that has been moving people for generations.” He goes on to say, “The cast will be amazing as it is the best of the best of Nancy’s talent. I think that it will be extraordinary on every level.” Sowinski believes the goal behind Summer Stock Theatre is  “To put up productions that speak to an audience. In this case, Nancy asked them what they wanted and responded with this exciting season. Summer stock is about establishing relationships through the theater by giving people who might not always take the chance to see a show, the opportunity to do so. In the case of summer stock, theatre becomes recreation and fully engaging. It brings people a sense of diversion but also brings them inspiring art to watch and applaud.”

A Review of Camelot!

From The Weirs Times
Lerner & Loewe’s “Camelot” Rocks Meredith
By Jane Bergeron

If you’ve ever hit the ‘oldies’ button on your car radio, or entered an elevator mid-song, and heard the strains of “Camelot”, your thoughts most likely flew to the handsome face and buttery baritone of Robert Goulet, and memories of hearing him sing the score on stage, in the movie, or on your own cassette tape.  Robert Goulet is as synonymous with the role of  King Arthur as Yul Brynner is with that of The King of Siam.

Producing Director of the Summer Theatre in Meredith Village, Nancy Barry was unable to procure the megastar to perform at the Interlakes Auditorium…..but she still pulled off a major coups when she was able to entice world famous director and choreographer, Norb Joerder, to spend part of his summer in New Hampshire.  It was Joerder who just recently reunited Goulet and “Camelot” for a critically acclaimed revival on Broadway, as well as a record breaking national tour.  But in 2010, he will be remembered for drawing the very best performances possible from a talented cast of young performers that Nancy gathered from all over the country.

Camelot” is a love story, or rather a love triangle, that has endured through the ages, whether based on fact or myth, the basics never change. The young and altruistic King Arthur reigns the magical kingdom of Camelot, where it never rains until after dark, and the sun shines daily by royal decree.  Kyle Szen, the ‘daddy-long-legs’ of the Meredith troupe, shines as the naïve ruler, and has a surprisingly strong stage voice for

such a young man – his lyrics are not only well sung, but also clear as a bell.

Of course, he is smitten by his lovely Queen Guenevere, who is unquestionably loyal to him throughout years of childless marriage. Plymouth University’s little cutie,  Lauren Burbank with the golden tresses, is wearing the 2nd crown in “Camelot”, and is almost as adorably naïve as her spouse.  The monkey-wrench in the works is that young scamp, Sir Lancelot, played by Billy Noble, who, of course, holds his emotions in check for years as he pines for Her Highness.

The uber-talented Jared Troilo, who this summer has already razzle dazzled us as Billy Flynn in “Chicago”, does double duty in “Camelot’ as not only Arthur’s lifelong tutor, the magician Merlyn, but also the ex-patriate and quirky King Pellinore.

The ladies in waiting and knights in shining armor populate this idyllic kingdom in an array of 51 sumptuous and stunning costumes, and are accompanied once again by the STMV show band.  This is a band well utilized, not just stowed away in their ‘pit’, but also actively involved on the stage as with the clarinetist and fiddler from “Fiddler on the Roof”, the trumpeter from “Camelot”, and the whole ensemble during the production of “Chicago.”

The royals from “Camelot” will be appearing in this chivalrous and witty romp through Sunday, August 15th, and hope to see you at the castle at The Summer Theatre at Meredith Village, in the Interlakes Auditorium on Route 25 in Meredith.  For more information on performances and tickets, please stop by the Box Office, call 1-888-245-6374, or visit the website, www.interlakestheatre.com.  You’ll be humming the tune to “If Ever I Would Leave You” for weeks……

Local Celebrities at Summer Theatre’s “Spelling Bee”

Clockwise from top: Brittany Bara, Scott Sowinski, Vanessa Moyen (11), Cody Strand (13), Will Carlyon (21).

The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village will open its final production of the season, “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” on August 17th at 8:00 at the Interlakes High School Community Auditorium. This new Broadway musical, which will run for one week only, will feature local celebrities including the Common Man entrepreneur, Alex Ray and Pat Kelly of WLNH. Nancy Barry, producer, said “We are currently talking to the Governor’s office. Spelling Bee sounded like fun to the Governor and he and Dr. Lynch would like to participate.” The whole idea started with Broadway producer “Barbara Whitman” whose son performed as Friedrich in “The Sound of Music” last year. “I was a little worried that the title wasn’t well known” says Barry, “But after seeing the show, I knew we had to do it!” The show is all heart. Its about these champion spellers who are a bit nerdy and very intense. For each of them, this championship spelling bee is a cathartic discovery on their journey. Will Carlyon, Barbara Whitman’s son, plays Chip Talentino, the previous years winner. Will, who is only nineteen, grew up with the creation of “Spelling Bee” happening all around him so it is only fitting that be here performing.

Performances of “Spelling Bee” are August 17th through the 22nd. Tuesday through Saturday at 8:00 and Sunday at 7:00 with Matinees on Wednesday at 2:00 and a special family day matinee on Saturday at 2:00.

Review of Chicago!

To be published in the Weirs Times!

“Chicago” Jazzes up Meredith
By Jane Bergeron

When ‘the hills are alive with the sound of music’, the Von Trapp family doesn’t necessarily have to be present.   All you need are 25 or so talented young actors, singers, dancers and musicians taking command of the stage at The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village while they rock your world with their third production of the summer – sexy, jazzy, sometimes scantily clad – “Chicago.”

Producing Director Nancy Barry has had “Chicago” at the top of her list of musicals to bring to the Lakes Region for three years, and her perseverance was finally rewarded this year at the last gasp of auditioning in New York.  One of the few ‘true’ musicals among thousands, “Chicago” is 90% music and 10% acting – who needs to make a speech when you can belt out some “Razzle Dazzle”?

Just in case you’ve been off the planet for awhile, “Chicago” is a tale of murder by fame-seeking speakeasy performers during prohibition years.  It was a time when the ‘best’ murder committed by the sexiest broad drew the most press coverage and resulting fame to not only the suspect lady, but her attorney and reporters as well.
Current trophy holder for most scandalous crime, Velma Kelly is awaiting trial and has become the sweetheart of the tabloid press.

Debuting in Meredith for this role is NYC’s Kelsey Cooke with her ‘20’s bob, fishnet stockings, and a voice that might knock you out of your seat.  Her new competition, the recently incarcerated dumb blonde Roxie Hart, is giving Velma a run for the money in all the aforementioned categories. Maggie Politi returns to STMV, thankfully, for a second summer.

If you were lucky enough to get tickets to the preceding production, “Fiddler on the Roof”, you had the joy of watching John Baker’s conversations with God and his delivery of “Tradition”, “If I Were a Rich Man”, and more.  Saints be praised  –  John returns as Roxie’s husband, Amos – no – Andy – no – Amos – and is heart wrenching with his presentation of “Mr. Cellophane.”

Attorney Billy Flynn (played by Jared Troilo) is slap-worthy as the ladies’ lawyer;  schlumpy prison matron “Mama” Morton, is a hoot of a role for Sheira Feuerstein; and C. Williams’ star reporter Mary Sunshine, is truly a sight to be seen.  But only until August 1st.

Don’t let “Chicago” slip out of town until you have your tickets.  The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village is resident of the delightfully air-conditioned Inter-Lakes Auditorium on Rte. 25.  For tickets and information, visit the Box Office, call 1-888-245-6374, or browse their website at www.interlakestheatre.com.  “Chicago” could be ‘your kind of town’.

Camelot rehearsals are underway!

Kyle Szen, Lauren Burbank and Billy Noble appear in “Camelot” at The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village, August 3-15th!

“Chicago” Razzle-Dazzles In Meredith

After waiting six months to receive permission from the original producers, The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village is excited to bring “Chicago” to New Hampshire.

Never before has the Broadway musical been so sexy and stylish – this 1920’s tale of two merry murderesses razzle-dazzles with a score by Kander and Ebb. The show features a handpicked professional cast from across the country that is sure to impress. This jazzy musical is directed by Brian Feehan, who also directed Summer Theatre favorites, “The Buddy Holly Story” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”

“Chicago” runs from July 20th to August 1st.

The season will continue with special Monday performances of “My Way: a Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra” on July 26 and August 9th, “Camelot” and “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”.

Tickets are still available so call 1-888-245-6374 to reserve your seats today!

Nancy Barry and The Summer Theatre mentioned in the Concord Monitor!

Theater veteran leads her own troupe

By Victoria ShouldisFor the Monitor July 8, 2010

Nancy Barry is never, ever far from the drama. On stage, she is trying to get her apron adjusted just right as she sings and dances “Tradition” with most of the 42-person cast of Fiddler on the Roof. Just barely offstage, she is trying to coordinate a quick trip to Ballard’s Novelties for a prop run. And then there’s the ghost haunting some of the interns.

The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village and Nancy Barry highlighted in Cast & Crew!

“I don’t like to say it’s at the high school because of the image that conjures up.  It’s the Community Auditorium; it just happens to be located in the school.”

Nancy Barry is proudly showing me the beautiful 420-seat theater that is home to her Summer Theatre in Meredith Village, set in the rolling hills beside Lake Winnipesaukee in the lakes region of New Hampshire.

Our Summer Season

The Summer Theatre in Meredith Village is abuzz as 49 actors and staff members are pouring into town to bring the Lakes Region the best season of feel-good Broadway style musicals yet!  Nancy Barry, Producing Director has travelled the country to bring a terrific ensemble of theatre professionals and college theatre students to work create the magic of Broadway right here at home.

The season will kick off with the crowd pleasing “My Way, A Tribute to Frank Sinatra” opening June 29 and running until July 4th.  As a special treat this fantastic collection of Ol Blue Eyes songs will continue to run throughout the season with “My Way” Mondays, July 12, 26 and August 9th, with extra showings at 2:00 and 7:00.

Opening July 6th is show steeped in Tradition, “Fiddler on the Roof” running for two weeks thru July 18th.  This show will feature a cast of 50, including our local Junior Apprentice Teens.

Following will be “Chicago”, from July 20-August 1st. “We waited for months to get permission to do this one”, says Barry, and it was worth the wait.  This Kander and Ebb musical features choreography in the style of the great Bob Fosse, and tells the story of Billy Flynn and the merry murderesses of the 1920’s media hype. It’s fun and sexy and has fabulous music and dancing.”

Unbelievable as it seems, the Summer Theatre will then follow August 3-15th with “Camelot” the gorgeous Lerner and Lowe score, the beautiful maidens and handsome knights.  This production is being directed by Norb Joerder who directed the last revival with Robert Goulet.  Says Barry of Norb, “We are so lucky to have him come to Meredith again this summer!”

The final show of the season is “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”, a brand new show that is still enjoying a Broadway run. “ I happen to be friends with one of the Broadway Producers and she has been very helpful in helping us prepare for this production” says Barry.  Her son, Will Carlyon, who appeared in STMV’s Sound of Music as Friedrich last year will play the role of “Chip Tolantino”in this show which runs for one week only Aug 17-22.  “It is a musical and has plenty of laughs and audience participation.

Performances of mainstage productions are Tuesday-Saturday at 8:00, Sunday at 7: with matinees every Wednesday.  In addition, each mainstage production will feature a special Family Day Saturday Matinee, with special pricing to help make a family outing more affordable.

For the younger children, the Junior Apprentice Company, made up of local teens who are aspiring actors, will perform three shows for the young and the young at heart.  They will be on Thursdays and Saturdays at 11:00 and include “Peter Pan” on July 15th and 17th, “Charlotte’s Web” on July 29th and 31st , and “Winnie the Pooh” on Aug 14th and 16th.  All tickets for children’s theatre are $8.00.
