The Little Prince
Until January 15th
A world premiere musical, also available via live stream!
Heralded as the most popular story of the last century, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s award-winning novella is now a sweeping musical, crafted by Seacoast Rep Resident Artist Jason Faria. With all new book, music and lyrics, this blockbuster production delivers the poignant humor and heartbreaking depth of the timeless classic with a shimmering score, beautiful visuals, expert theatre magic and magnificent special effects.
The Little Prince follows a pilot who crashes in the Sahara Desert and encounters a young boy from a tiny planet. The stories of the mysterious boy’s travels and his encounters with a cast of out-of-this-world characters create an existential whirlwind that leave the pilot face to face with his own inner child. This “children’s story for adults” uses grace, humor, and a heavy dash of mysticism to teach how to look not with the eyes, but with the heart.
BE MORE CHILL
January 19th – January 23rd
A Portsmouth Academy of Performing Arts Teen Mainstage Production!
Fresh from Broadway, the wildly popular electronic sci-fi pop-rock musical comes to the Rep stage for a limited run!
Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about "The Squip," a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most: a date with Christine, an invite to the raddest party of the year and a chance to survive life in his suburban New Jersey high school. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk?
Featuring an innovative score of electronic music as forward thinking as its messages about anxiety, depression, and fitting in, Be More Chill has become the heartbeat of Generation Z!
Coming in February 2022:
February 3rd-February 26th
Often described as a “perfect musical,” The Music Man has endured for generations as one of the most popular and unique pieces of theatre in American history. Its rich and snappy score, full of popular hits, is at once incredibly wholesome, side splittingly hilarious, and outrageously clever. Overflowing with beautiful melodies and crackerjack lyrics, it will leave even the most “Iowa stubborn'' of theatregoers positively walking on clouds!
February 9th - February 23rd
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, this sensational drama tells the story of Troy Maxson, a man of immense wisdom, strength, and bitterness, whose overbearing nature builds up emotional “fences” between him and his family, even while he provides for them. A masterful blend of poetry, humor, superstition, and layered symbols, August Wilson’s Fences is one of the richest and most engrossing pieces of American theatre produced in the last century.
