05 Dec Meredith Village Gets into the Holiday Spirit!
This weekend, the lakeside village of Meredith, NH will become a little more festive as The Mill Falls Marketplace transforms into a winter wonderland of old-fashioned holiday charm, while The Winnipesaukee Playhouse celebrates the season with a new twist on some well-loved classic Christmas tunes—with lots of laughs and good cheer!
On Saturday, December 6th, The Winnipesaukee Playhouse and Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater will present “Something Wonderful I Missed! Holiday Edition.” This fun new show is an innovative concert that mixes great songs from Broadway and Off-Broadway musicals with the sometimes hilarious stories behind those songs. Four versatile performers playing a range of characters will present a concert of holiday selections from several musicals, including classics such as “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “We Need A Little Christmas,” as well as lesser-known gems. This is the first year-round season for the Winnipesaukee Playhouse, so come on out and support great local theater! Tickets are $25 for Orchestra seating and $15 for Balcony.
