Top 30 Favorite Songs List from Shows Seen or performed in 2016   Leave a comment

The NH Theatre Awards nominations were announced yesterday. Here is my list of top 30 favorite songs from shows seen or performed in 2016. What a great year in NH Theatre it has been.
30. You Won’t Succeed On Broadway Monty Python’s Spamalot
29. KansasLand Curtains
28. The title song from Footloose comes in at number 28. This song always makes me want to get up and dance.
27. Shine Like The Sun 9 T0 5
26. We’re Not Gonna Take It Rock Of Ages I just wanted to point out that I will be using this song in my protest poems unit for my poetry class at Plus Company.
25 Written In Stars AIDA I did not get to see AIDA at Peacock Players but was lucky to see this performed at the Holiday Stroll. It is one of my favorite songs by Elton John.
24. I Want The Good Times Back The Little Mermaid This song was performed in our spring concert for Souhegan Valley Chorus. I think it is fantastic and have been meaning to download it. I unfortunately did not get to see The Little Mermaid when Peacock Players performed it.
23. Proud Of Your Boy Aladdin Jr This was put on by Riverbend Youth Company back in January. This was a very powerful song and really pulled at the heart strings.
22. There You’ll Be This was one of my favorite songs from our Souhegan Valley Showcase in June. It is from the movie Pearl Harbor which I have never seen.
21. Friend Like Me Aladdin Jr This has hands down always been my favorite song from Aladdin.
20. Spanish Panic Once Upon A Mattress This was Nashua South’s musical last spring. It is a very fun dance number.
19. Everybody Say Yeah Kinky Boots My mom took me to NYC to see Kinky Boots for my 31st birthday. This was one of my favorite songs from the show.
18. Let’s Go To The Movies Annie I mean of course this would make the countdown! How could it not? Annie is one of my favorite musicals which is of course why it is my favorite song that we sang in the Showcase.
17. Won’t You Charleston With Me? The Boyfriend This one of my top favorite songs from Souhegan’s musical last year.. another fun dance number.
16. Almost Paradise Footloose A beautiful love song that pulls at the heart strings.
15. Forever Shrek The Musical This number was very fun to be in.
14. Never Fall In Love With An Elf Elf The Musical
This was one of my favorite songs from Elf. It is sung by Jovie and is about her choice of relationships.
13. Taylor The Latte Boy I love Naomi Cohen… that is all! ūüôā
12. Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life Monty Python’s Spamalot To be fair I heard of this song before I even saw the play because it was in Souhegan Valley Chorus concert in 2014 when their theme for the spring concert was Broadway. Yay for throwbacks.
11. Don’t Stop Believing Rock Of Ages This song got me through some pretty difficult times when I was looking for a job. I now have two awesome jobs at Plus Company and Gateways Community Services.
10. Freak Flag Shrek The Musical This is my top favorite song from Shrek The Musical. I feel the message behind it is very important about standing up for what you believe in. It elicited many a powerful discussion in my poetry class at Plus Company the past couple of semesters.
9. Under The Sea The Little Mermaid My boyfriend Matt rocked his solo in Souhegan Valley Showcase.
8. Morning Person Shrek The Musical This was my favorite number from Shrek out of the numbers I was not in. I really want to make this song the alarm clock ring tone on my cell phone.
7. Show People Curtains I feel this song represents the core of being involved in theatre and the strong relationships I have formed with people I do shows with. I have a lot of love for the people in my theatre family which I know is reciprocated.
6. Consider Yourself Oliver This was my favorite song from Oliver.. I especially love the tap dancing flash mob section.
5. 12 Days Of A Regifted Christmas This is a parody of 12 Days of Christmas that we sang in our chorus concert last weekend.
4. Agony Into The Woods This song is hysterical.
3. OOM PAH PAH Oliver I may not drink a lot in reality but it is fun to pretend to drink on stage.. it was always really fun to waltz too. ūüôā
2. I’ll Believe In You Elf The Musical This song is in Act 1 of Elf The Musical and is sung by Emily and Michael Hobbs. I feel the lyrics in this song are very powerful because it really brings home the point of how much strain is in the family dynamic because Walter works all the time.
1. Somewhere West Side Story Honestly West Side Story has so many amazing songs and it is hard to choose just one song that is my favorite. This song gives me chills whenever I listen to it and Katie Gianakoplios stole that scene with her solo. My other favorite songs from West Side Story include I Feel Pretty, Tonight and America.

Holiday Happenings   Leave a comment

Lots of ground to cover here!!!

November 26th was the Nashua Holiday Stroll which is something I look forward to every year. At the stroll Alex Preston performed (seeing him again Friday night at Union Coffee house.. what can I say I’m a groupie) and then headed to Peacock Players for a double bill of performances. It started off with the Spotlight Musical Theatre Troupe. They sang a variety of Christmas songs including River and My Grown Up Christmas List. This was followed by Technical Difficulties Improv Troupe which I always enjoy watching. My favorite games include Questions Only and Gibberish.
December 4th was the Messiah Sing which Souhegan Valley Chorus participates in. Next year I hope our schedule will allow Matt and I to participate in it, I always love going to this because of the great job at all the soloists do. The Messiah Sing is perfomed at the Congreagational Church in Mt Vernon the first weekend in December
Last Sunday, December 11th was our Holiday Concert for Souhegan Valley Chours. I have to say that this concert was my favorite one so far. We were joined by SHS ACapella Group and Jackie O’Dowd accompanied us on violin for December Rose and All Through The Night. My favorite songs that we sang this semester were Sing With The Angels, 12 Days Of A Regifted Christmas, Flowers In Winter ( fun to know that two members of our chorus are descendants of John Greenleaf Whittier.) and All Through The Night! This spring I am taking the semester off from SVC so I can focus on the PTA Play but look forward to rejoining in the fall.
Last night and tonight Matt and I went Sonya and Jen to see Elf at Riverbend Company and Peacock Players. Some people may think we’re a little crazy for seeing the same show twice in the same weekend but due to a schedule change at the last minute we could not see Elf at Peacock Players last weekend. Notable performances in the Riverbend performance were by Kyra Whitehead (Emily Hobbs), Jack Vore (Santa Claus) Taylor Ciotti (Charlotte Dennon) , Danny Solari (Beuddy) Kiara Shattuck (Ms. Greenway) and Shelby Brown (Jovie)
Notable performances in the Peacock Players productions were by Bailey Jamieson (Buddy), Alex Imhof (Mr. Greenway), Lakeland Galinson (Michael Hobbs), Lillie Ellers (Jovie) Caitlin Johnson (Emily Hobbs) Alex Nick (Santa) and Kyle Kashibawa ( Fake Santa)
Favorite Musical Numbers included Happy All The Time. I’ll Believe In You and Never Fall In Love With An Elf.
Both performances of Elf Jr have one performance left.
The Riverbend Youth Company performance Directed by Laurie Toupin, Music Directed by Kim Whitehead and Choreographed by Madison Calabria has a 2:30pm performance at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts
The Peacock Players performance directed by Andrea Underhill, Music Directed by Sarah Evans and choreographed by Cristina White.
Congrats to both casts and crews of Elf
Prior to seeing Elf my mom and I had a great mother/daughter afternoon seeing A Christmas Carol at the Palace Theatre with SVC friends. I am always so impressed by these the productions especially by the set design! Notable performances were by Stuart Harmon (Marley and Ghost of Christmas Present), George Phiel (Scrooge), Marc Willis (Mr. Fezziwig) Megan Quinn (Mrs. Fezziwig and Dakatoa Dutcher (Fred)
Favorite Musical Numbers were Fum Fum Fum (ironically I remember the Acapella Singers singing this in one of our Christmas concerts in high school), Fezziwig’s Christmas Ball and All Alone.
A Christmas Carol runs through Dec 23rd at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. You won’t want to miss it. Performances are at 2pm and 7:30pm. A Christmas Carol is directed and choreographed by Carl Rajotte, Music Directed by Joel Mercier. Congrats to the cast and crew on great performance!

Have a SparkleJollyTwinkleJingely Christmas Everyone and a fabulous start to 2017 too!

NHTA predictions   Leave a comment

Did I post these predictions already? Probably. Will they come out accurate? Highly unlikely. Feel free to weigh in with your opinions in the comments. Full review  of the NHTAs tomorrow at one point or another.

All of these predictions  are in the community  category as I shaw no shows  in professional category.
Best Production Musical

Predicted Top 3

CATS Amherst PTA

Crazy For You Actorsingers

Into The Woods  Actorsingers

I am biased towards CATS obviously but it could really be anyone’s game here. ¬†Putting bias aside though it would be great to see Stagecoach Productions take home a win or two this evening since they recently closed their doors.

Winner: Crazy For You Actorsingers

I did not see any shows in the Best  Production Youth Category so my best guess for a top 3 prediction would be  Chicago & Wizard Of Oz Peacock Players and The Wedding Singer Teen Actorsingers

Best Director

Crazy For You Actorsingers Martha Daniels Holland

All Shook Up Stagecoach Productions  Scott Severance

Sweeney Todd Community Players Of Concord Wallace J. Pineault

The only show I saw in this category is Crazy For You but  I have previously seen a show directed by Scott at Stagecoach and it was amazing. I did not see Sweeney Todd but Wally is fantastic in general.

Winner: Keith Weirch Chicago Peacock Players

Best Actor Drama Comedy¬† I am biased in this category only because A Midsumer Night’s Dream was the only show I saw ¬†and Jakov did an amazing job.

Winner:¬†¬† Kevin¬† O’Neil¬† as Willy Loman Death¬† of A Salesman M& D Productions

Best Actor Musical Community

Top 4

CATS Amherst PTA Gary Evans as Munkustrap

Crazy For  You Actorsingers Joel Iwakewiz as Bobby Child

Top 3

Into The Woods Actorsingers Joel Iwakewiz as The Baker

Sweeney Todd Community Players Of Concord Matt Mcgonagle as Sweeney Todd

Winner: Matt Mcgonagle   Sweeney Todd Community  Players of Concord

Most of the acting categories will have a top 4 instead of top 3 because there are just too many good performances to choose from and I need to achieve balance somehow. The balance referred to is either Sweeney Todd or any other show I did not get the chance to see but have seen performers in other shows with other company

It is hard to pick a winner.

Best Actresss Drama Comedy

Predicted Top 3

*Based on  prior nominations and or wins

*All My Sons Winnnipasaukee Playhouse Barbara Webb as  Kate Keller

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Milford  Area Players Caity Glover as Maggie The Cat

Death By Design Milford Area Players Amy Agostino as Brigid

It  is so hard to pick a winner between Amy and Caity because they were both fantastic.

Winner: Julianne Bronson  Linda Loman Death Of A Salesman M&D Productions

Best Actress Youth Top 3

Predictions are made based on previous performances I have seem then in.

The Wedding Singer Teen Actorsingers Emma Benson As Julie Sullivan. Top 3

Chicago Peacock Players Lillie Ellars as Roxie Hart

The Wizard Of Oz Peacock Players  Elsa Keefe as Dorothy

Winner:  Gracie Kontack Velma  Kelly Chicago Peacock Players

*Based on prior  performances I have seen them in.

Winner  *All Shook Up Stagecoach Productions Mia Beradi as Natalie

Crazy For You Actorsingers  Laura Iwaskewiz As Polly Baker

Into The Woods Actorsingers Jessica Dee as The Witch
If I could predict a tie in any category it would be this one  as Laura and Jessica were both fantastic.

*Big Fish Stagecoach Productions Stuart Harmon as Edward Bloom Senior)

Top 3 Crazy For You Actorsingers Colin Malette as Bela Zangler

Crazy For You Actorsingers Kevin Linkroum as Lank Hawkins

Winner: Elliot Owens   Dennis in All Shook Up  Stagecoach Productions

Best Supporting Actor Drama Comedy

A Midsummer Night’s Dream Peacock Players Kurtis Beeten as Lysander and Mac Galinson as Demetrius

Cat On A Hot Tin Roof Milford Area Players Glen Grimard as Big Daddy

Glen will win this one since Peacock Players is a dominant favorite in so many other categories.

Winner:

Did not see enough shows in Best Drama Comedy category in order  to make  a legitimate prediction.

*Based on previous performances

Crazy For You Actorsingers  Amy Agostino as Patricia Foder

*The Wizard Of Oz Peacock Players Gracie Kontack as Miss Gulch/ Wicked Witch

Winner:  Olivia  Dube Paulette Bonafonte  Legally  Blonde    Majestic Theatre
Tech Awards

The Best Music Director category  for a community production  is largely  dominated by Judy Hayward and Henry Kopcyznski II III.  I predict that Judy will win for Crazy For You and also win  in the professional category for Jesus Christ Superstar at Winnipasaukee Playhouse.  Winner in this category was Henry  Kopczynski  Chicago  Peacock  Players

Best Choreographer

*Based on previously seen performances

Crazy For You Actorsingers Martha Daniels Holland

Top  3/Winner *Chicago Peacock Players Valerie  Psonis Nelson

* The Wizard Of  Oz  Peacock Players Alyssa Dumas & Valerie Psonis Nelson

Vouli should have been nominated. I am mad that she wasn’t. ūüėď

This is a tough one to predict because Martha and Val are both great choreographers.

Best Coustume Design

*Based on previously seen performances.

Top 3 CATS Amherst PTA  Mary Selvoski Mary Jo Smith and  Laura Majore     Laura  Majore also won the Theatre Hero Award

Crazy For You Actorsingers Cherie Prior

*The Wizard Of Oz Peacock Players  Maggie Mahony

 

As much as I want this to be a win for the PTA I wouldn’t mind if ¬†the results tonight ¬†were as such that we tied with Actorsingers because Cherie’s costumes were awesome too.

Winner: Alex Homola  Chicago  Peacock Players

Best Sound Design

A largely dominant category for Rich Loomer and I am hoping he wins for A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Peacock Players. He is also nominated for ¬†All Shook Up ¬†with Stagecoach Productions and Chicago & Wizard Of Oz with Peacock Players.¬† Rich¬† won for Chicago with¬† Peacock¬† Players

I was  disappointed CATS  was not nominated in this category.

Best Scenic Design  I did not see any shows in the category so thus  I  can not make accurate predictions, however I hope Wally wins.  Winner: Jim Webber Time Stands Still  Theatre Kapow

Best  Lighting Design  Peacock Players is dominant in this category with three nominations  however I hope Wally wins. Winner:  Tayve  Young Time Stands Stil  Theatre Kapow

 

In the professional theatre category  my  summer stock alma mater  the New London Barn Playhouse  got many top three nominations and several awards for their respective  performances of  The Mystery Of  Edwin Drood and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels



Let’s play a game of Catch up   Leave a comment

Life has kept me  busy, on my toes and mostly away from the computer so I have fallen behind on reviews. Matt and I will be writing a joint review later this weekend for Crazy For You with Actorsingers. The meantime here are some capsule reviews for shows I never got the capable to type up.

Feb 19th  (yes, this was forever ago… Just shows have far behind I have fallen) My mother and I saw A Midsummer Night’s Dream at  Peacock Players. Sometimes when I need a break from seeing musicals I love either Shakespeare plays or Neil Simon comedies. As always Peacock Players did a fantastic job and what made this production most unique was the live music performances by Curtis Beeteen & Lillie Ellers, Elsa Keefe & Gabriella Siva & Elayna Gardner. Notable performances were by Wally Capen, Jason Frank, Mac Galinson,Brandon Feliciano and Christina Higginson. A Midsummer Summer Night February 13-22 at the Court St Theatre  in Nashua.

March 21st-  Matt & I saw  Death By Design at Milford Area Players. This was a very hysterical show that had me laughing the whole time. Notable performances were by Amy Agostino,Anja Ward and Katie Hammes. This mad cap comedy was directed by Val Verge and was performed at the  Amato Center March 13-22nd.

March 29th-  Matt & I saw Oklahoma at Nashua South. This was my 3rd time seeing Oklahoma. Previously I have seen it at Interlakes Summer Theatre & New London Barn Playhouse.  Favorite Musical Numbers include The Farmer & The Cowman,People Will Say We’re In Love,Many A New Day & Oklahoma.  Notable performances were by Olivia Hodson,Sarah Drake Christina Higginson,Sean Vigneault & Charlie Deichmann. Oklahoma was performed at Nashua South March 27-29.  Oklahoma was directed by Joel Iwakewiz and choreographed by Laura Iwaskewicz
And more recently I have seen-

May 6th Jen and I saw You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown performed by the Palace Theatre Youth Company. First time seeing a show by them and it was fantastic. The music in this show is fun to listen too and there’s lots of good comedic moments.  Favorite musical numbers were Suppertime,Beetoven Day, My New Philosophy & My Blanket & Me. Notable performances were by Joey Gold,Sydney Stevens,Toni Catanzariti, Luke Gold& Katie Duncan. Looking forward to seeing many shows by them!
Last night Matt & I went to the Souhegan High School Spring Concert.  It was a wonderful night of music with a great variety of songs played. Favorite songs were  National Anthems  (Vietnam China & USA), The Turtle Dove and Bohemian Rhapsody ( Concert Choir),Part Of Your World and Edelweiss ( Handbells)  Somebody That I Used To Know,Kuimba & The Longest Time (Acapella Singers) and Captain America March, Alligator Alley and Stevie Wonder In Concert (Concert Band) Congrats to all the seniors and to Pat McMullen on her retirement.

NH Theatre Awards 13   2 comments

AH!¬†¬† Here¬† we are again…¬†¬† my¬† NH¬† Theatre¬† Awards Summary Entry.¬†¬† Last night’s show was¬† great…. though¬† I have to admit sometimes¬† a bit¬† anticlimactic.¬† I love how the NHTAS¬† bring together all the different theatre companies from around the state.¬† I always try to make it a mission to try to get¬† to¬† some theatres¬† I’ve never gone to but my schedule does not allow it..¬† hopefully¬† this year¬† I’ll do a little research and see what shows are playing¬† where and then go.¬† This year¬†¬† I¬† did not get¬† a chance to make¬† predictions¬† like I normally would.¬† I’ve actually had a¬† bad¬† track record of predicting things… in the past couple of years only 2¬† PTA predictions have come out accurate.¬† I¬† decided to try¬† out not going into the awards show with any¬† pre-conceived¬† notions of who would win… and yet somehow I end up disappointed anyway.

Shows  I saw this year that were nominated

Actorsingers

The Music Man¬†¬† 6 nominations¬†¬† No¬† top 3¬† ūüė¶

Young Frankenstien   7 nominations     Top 3:  Music Director  Judy  Hayward  Best Supporting Actress  Top  3   Mia  Beradi and Rachel  Cerrullo     Winner:  Rachel   Cereullo    Best Supporting Actor  Eric  Skoglund

Stagecoach  Productions

Kiss Me Kate   5 nominations    1 Top  3   Best Actress  Sarah  Murai

Beyond  Therapy  Milford Area  Players   5  Nominations  1  top  3   Amy Agostino  Best Supporting  Actress

Let’s review¬† the past couple years of PTA nominations.¬†¬† I see a bit a trend developing here.

Please note also that I am only listing the shows I have been involved with   I  am not sure of the stats for anything earlier than 2011.

2011   The Music Man  7  nominations 3  top 3       Ashley won best Actress

2012  Oklahoma   8  Nominations  3 top 3       Nick Hammes  won best supporting actor

2013  Meet Me In St Louis   4  Nominations   Margaret  got top 3 for best actress  No   winners

2014¬†¬† Seussical¬†¬†¬† 7¬† Nominations¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Sophie got top 3 and¬† won for best¬† Actress.¬† So happy for her!!¬† I am disappointed that we weren’t quite¬† as successful in the other catergoies.¬†¬† I understand the adjudicators have to make a lot of tough descions¬† when they are picking the¬† winners¬† but¬†¬† I think¬† Seussical was¬† BY¬† FAR¬† the best¬† show that the PTA¬† has done in the past¬† 10 years¬† (aside from¬† Annie¬† and Oklahoma which were my¬†favorites for obvious reasons but there were lots of other great shows in between)¬†¬† and was really overlooked¬† in a lot of ways..¬† maybe¬† I have¬† my own bias and the adjudicators¬† have theirs but that’s just¬† how¬†¬† I feel.

Peacock  Players won  multiple awards for  Spring Awakening and The Addams  Family. Two shows  I wish  I had  seen.

Congratulations to  all top 3 nominees and winners!!

In general¬†¬† I think¬† that¬† there is a lot favoritism in the¬† Theatre Awards and a lot of the same companies win¬† every year which puts other groups at¬† a disadvantage.¬†¬†¬† I am not sure how many people feel the same way.¬†¬† I¬† also feel that¬†¬† being¬† adjudicated¬† for the PTA¬† puts a lot of¬† extra¬† stress on us to do a¬† good¬† job¬† which¬† sucks the enjoyment out of being in the play.¬† I’ve¬† felt this way¬† for¬† awhile and wonder¬† how many of my¬† cast mates feel the same way.¬† Recognition is well and good¬† but¬† our focus should be centered on¬† putting on a good show for¬† the community and raising money¬† for the Amherst Schools¬†¬† not winning awards.¬† Do¬† other people feel the same way or am¬†¬† I alone in feeling like this?

“Because I knew you I have been changed for good.”   Leave a comment

Friday night I went to the senior cabaret at Peacock Players. This was a salute to all the seniors who are graduating high school and it was a wonderful way to send them off. They had some slide show presenations and a scholarship award for the Jared Nathan Memorial Scholarship. I got emotional a few times.. once during the presentation of the scholarship because I knew Jared and he was truly an inspirational person. I am so glad the scholarship is given out every year and feel it represents what he stood for very well. Trisha Mahoney and Joe Reault got the award. There was a great variety of songs performed that night including Someone Else’s Story from Chess, Leavin’s Not The Only Way To Go from Big River, Fly Away (Never Never Land) from Dreaming Wide Awake, A Way Back To Then from Title of Show and Astonishing from Little Women. I think I will probably be buying a lot of these songs on itunes!! ūüôā

My co star from the PTA play Olivia Vordenberg has been involved in Peacock Playeres for a couple of years. I think out of all the people who graduated from the PTA play group I am probably going to miss her the most. I am really so happy to have gotten to know her through working on the plays. She is an amazing person and I know she will do great things after high school.

Congrats to all Peacock Players, Riverbend Youth Company and PTA seniors. Seize the day class of 2014.
