Jason and the Argonauts Theater Show

Time: 9:00 AM-10:30 PM
Place: Chlemsford Performing Arts Center, 200 Richardson Rd., North Chlemsford, MA (about 69 miles from Keene)
Price: $10 per person
Ages: 9-14

Two actors, 65 minutes, one golden fleece…..Visible Fictions presents a hugely physical and irreverent telling of the ancient Greek myth with swashbuckling action and secretly-good-for-you wealth of classical knowledge.  Jason’s uncle isn’t exactly loveable…he’s murdered his brother (the king) and stolen the kingdom.  Now nobody dares stand up to him.  Things are about to get a major shake-up though, because Jason is back!  After being banished as a baby, our wannabe hero returns to claim his rightful throne and make some big changes.  However, in ancient times nothing is that straightforward.  Jason and his crew must sail on The Argo to the other side of the world to find the Golden Fleece, bring it back and unite the people.  As if that wasn’t difficult enough, the odd monster, sleeping dragon and clashing rock endeavor to ruin his trip and spice things up on this most fantastic of journeys!

Rapunzel Performance

Time: 7:00 PM-8:00 PM
Place: St. Paul School, Memorial Hall, 325 Pleasant St., Concord, NH (about 50 miles from Keene)
Price: $5

Ages: All

What does a hairy egg have to do with romance? Why did a lovely maiden get locked in a tower? And, what’s wrong with wearing glasses? Those are just a few of the quirky questions to be answered when members of the Concord Junior Service League take to the stage to present an absolutely hilarious version of the children’s classic, Rapunzel.
The play, which is appropriate for all ages, will be held at Memorial Hall in St. Paul’s School, Concord, on Friday, March 16, 2012 at 7pm and Saturday, March 17, 2012 at 2p.m. Tickets are $5 and are available at the door.

This year’s production stars over a dozen members of the JSL including; Adelina Anderson as the somewhat geeky teenager Rapunzel who falls ‘head over heals’ for Prince Llewellyn. Llewellyn, who likes to be called Lew, is the quintessential nerd with an annoying nasally voice, high-water pants and over sized broken glasses, played by Julie Guerrette. The wicked witch who has a “wicked” strong Boston accent is played by the enormously talented Cristen Kaufman. The show is directed by Karen Bratz, winner of the 2010 New Hampshire Theatre Award for ‘Achievement in Children’s Youth Theatre.

The JSL of Concord is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise money to aid and assist local women and children in crisis. All proceeds from the play will go toward accomplishing that mission.
