Winnipesaukee Playhouse Hosting Holiday Concerts

The Winnipesaukee Playhouse invites audiences to get into the holiday spirit with two concerts which will kick off the holiday season with great music and lots of fun.

On December 3rd and 4th at 2pm, the Playhouse welcomes back audience favorite Kristhani Pappas for a show called Sleigh Bells Swing. Krisanthi has performed at the Playhouse on and off since 2004, and this time she will be joined by her band. They will be performing jazzy renditions of holiday favorites like Winter Wonderland, White Christmas, Santa Baby, and many more! The show contains some audience involvement, adding interactive fun into the mix! The Jazz Times says, ““Krisanthi Pappas has a soft, dusky voice like Norah Jones’ or Diana Krall’s… her performance is one of subtle restraint and beauty.”

On December 6th at 2pm and 7:30pm, NH-based theatre company Not Your Mom’s Musical Theatre will be at the Playhouse performing Something Wonderful I Missed! Holiday Edition. This innovative concert mixes great songs from Broadway and off-Broadway musicals with the often hilarious history behind those songs. Four versatile, talented performers, playing a range of characters to live piano accompaniment, will present a concert of holiday selections from musicals, from now classics like Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and We Need A Little Christmas to lesser-known gems you might have missed from shows as varied as Striking 12 and Promises, Promises. The show gets into the holiday spirit with a glimpse of musical theater at its finest and simplest – actors onstage, telling a story through music. The Nashua Telegraph says, “NYMMT consistently provides cutting-edge, lesser-known — and FUN! — theatrical performances. Go.”

Tickets for both productions are $25 in the orchestra and $15 in the balcony. Group rates are available for groups of 20 or more. Tickets are available at www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.org or by calling (603) 279-0333.
