This year, The Music Hall and Ogunquit Playhouse are proud to bring Elf The Musical to the Historic Theater stage for the holiday show.

Member Spotlight: Jackie Gadsden and Laurel Dunn

When I encounter Jackie Gadsden and Laurel Dunn in the coffee shop to talk about this article, I find them deep in conversation with a gentleman seated at their table. As he got up to leave, I was surprised to hear them exchange “nice to meet yous.” Apparently, he was in town from Hawaii visiting family and had tripped on his way into the shop. The three of them struck up a conversation that led to an invitation to their table. If you ever trip grabbing your morning coffee in downtown Portsmouth, I highly recommend running into Jackie and Laurel. There couldn’t be two more friendly, interesting, and charming women to help get your day back on track. Read More

This morning, The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing had me dancing around my apartment as I got ready for work pretending I was Judy Haynes.

A Wilcox and Kane Partnership Brings 100 Veterans to White Christmas

As the curtain rises on the tale of two former WWII platoon buddies teaming up with fellow veterans of the 151st Division to aid their retired General, 100 of New Hampshire’s esteemed veterans will be in the audience. Together, they’ll experience the magic, camaraderie, romance, and hilarity of this classic story. Thanks to the generous gift of Jim Teetzel of Wilcox Industries and Michael Kane of The Kane Company, Veterans Count received tickets to Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to distribute to honored veterans for the Wednesday, November 29 performance.

It’s the sweetest time of the year

It’s that time of year again, it’s time for me to pull out my baking pans, remember how to use my oven, and start building my Gingerbread House. For those of you who know me personally, or have been following this blog for awhile, you know that I take this competition very seriously, I’m even a member of the committee that runs the competition. I’ve built a first draft of my model, I’ve reached out to expert bakers for tips and tricks (and I want to send a very big THANK YOU to Popovers on the Square for ALLLLLLL of their help!), and roped in some coworkers.
