Celebrate Our Community Through Give the Gift of Magic

One of my favorite parts of my job is to help facilitate community outreach programs like this one that puts tickets to our annual holiday show partnership with Ogunquit Playhouse in the hands of families in need. It’s rewarding for all of us at The Music Hall to know that more local families from all walks of life will enjoy the perfect family-friendly Christmas show, Annie, this season, thanks to our wonderful patrons and amazing partners.

We sure do need your help! Inspired by Morgan and Tara Rutman, Give the Gift of Magic has grown—just last year, we gifted 349 tickets to local families, but we hope to continue to grow this holiday season and beyond. From now through the first week of December, every time you purchase a ticket to any show at The Music Hall, you can give an additional, tax-deductible donation that will help us provide Annie tickets to those who might not otherwise be able to attend.

We are very grateful for our returning community partners, Haven, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Hampshire, Arts in Reach, Greater Seacoast Community Health (formerly Families First Health and Support Center and Goodwin Community Health of Somersworth), and Cross Roads House, and we welcome new partner Easterseals New Hampshire. We are also grateful for our sponsor, Hampton Ford Hyundai, who have generously agreed to match a portion of every donation made to Give the Gift.
