HOLDERNESS — The Little Church Theater of Holderness has been selected by the editors of New Hampshire Magazine as the "2015 Editor's Pick for Best Local Theater."
Located on the shores of Squam Lake, The Little Church Theater serves as a gathering place for creativity in the performing and visual arts that was built at the end of the 19th century by the Catholic Diocese of Manchester. Sunday worshipers could ride to the Sacred Heart Chapel aboard a ferry run by the Asquam Transportation Company.
In 2003, George and Austine Howard purchased the desanctified church and added a stage, theater lighting, and seating for 144 people.
Each summer The Little Church Theater continues its commitment to big performances of known and new theatrical works, children's workshops and presentations, visual arts, education for all ages, and cultivating sustainability.
The first play of the twelfth season will be the original piece, "The Salon," by Jessica Hoffmann Davis of Holderness. Additionally, the theater will hold its annual High School Art Exhibit, a cabaret night, Young@Art Performance Workshops, a Broadway review by Terminal Hip Dance Theatre, an appearance by Medium Cindy Kaza, the popular Neil Simon play "The Odd Couple," the musical comedy "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change," art workshops, and Project Greenway, a design competition which encourages recycling, reusing, and repurposing. The last play of the season will be the premier of "Questions in a Quiet Café," an original play by Lowell Williams of Nashua.
