If you’ve been wondering what a musical about Edgar Allan Poe might involve – the answer is everything and then some. There’s Edgar, a theatre troupe, figures from his past (friends, family, loves, rivals), a raven, a horse, an imp, and so much more. And it all comes together through music, verse, lighting, choreography, and costuming.

Want to READ what it’s all about? Neil Zolot on behalf of the Saugus Advertiser saw Nevermore last Saturday and chatted with our director and choreographer, Jason Hair-Wynn, and our music director, Shawn Gelzleichter, as well as members of the cast about the process and the final product. Read the Saugus Advertiser Review.

It’s Christmas in July!

Tickets for our Youth Theatre Workshop production of Elf The Musical JR. are now on sale for performances on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27.

If you are not familiar with this newer holiday classic, Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and that his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.

A great show for children of all ages, it will be performed by our Youth Theatre Workshop attendees who range from 1st to 8th grade. Some are new to our summer program and others have participated for years. They are ready to sing and dance and spread some holiday cheer.

Come support our fantastic youth actors and enjoy a holiday celebration mid-year!
