Please help spread the word and we will “pack the house” the end of this month during:
A LONG WEEKEND IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

The Walpole Players’ production for Old Home Days 2014 is A LONG WEEKEND IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. Performances will be Friday and Saturday June 20 and 21 the week before Old Home Days, and once the Old Home Days’ festivities begin the last week in June, the show will be held Thursday June 26 and Saturday June 28. The curtain will rise at 7PM in the Helen Miller Theater on the second floor of Walpole’s Town Hall, Walpole, New Hampshire.
This original play was written by and is being directed by “players” member Gail Golec. A comedy, in four-self contained acts, the play offers entertaining vignettes of country life in New Hampshire (maybe even Walpole). Act I- Life in 4/4 Time, goes through the hectic life of a modern young family; Act II – The Funeral, shows a family coming together after a funeral and sharing old stories; Act III -The Farmstand, explores the events surrounding an ordinary day at the local vegetable stand; and Act IV- The Lumberman, The Farmer and The Fisherman, is the dramatic recitation of an epic poem (with footnotes).
The cast of 27 people includes, besides the familiar Walpole Players, a number of new members joining The Walpole Players for the first time.
Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for under 12 years of age, and are available at Galloway Real Estate, Real to Reel Video, Murray’s, Costume Ladies, and Village Square Booksellers. For additional information call 603 756-4545.
