'Take me to THE EDGE ...'
ABOUT OUR CURRENT PRODUCTION AND ANNUAL DINNER THEATRE
With sadness but out of an abundance of concern for public health, The Edge Ensemble has decided to cancel its production of "Italian American Reconciliation." Rapid developments regarding the spread of COVID-19 have led the cast, crew, and board members of the Edge Ensemble to make the difficult decision to postpone.
We hope to be able to present this funny and heartwarming play in the near future. Thank you for your support, and please stay safe!
Our next production, March 13-15 and 19-22, will be Italian American Reconciliation by John Patrick Shanley, and it is a delightful romantic comedy, full of whimsy and wisdom. AND, we are very excited to be bringing back our ANNUAL DINNER THEATRE fundraiser along with this lovely production on SATURDAY, MARCH 14, which will, of course, feature an Italian style feast! Tickets are $60 per person, and MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE. You can even purchase an entire table of 8 for friends or colleagues for $480. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Call 603-352-5657 or email or send a message from the "contact us" section of this website to purchase your tickets and make your menu selections. If you have not been to one of our dinner theatre evenings before, here is what you can expect! Arrive at 6:00 PM for an antipasto, followed by a soup course, and then the main course. Next, watch Act 1, and at intermission you will be able to select desserts from an array of Italian delights! Then watch Act 2. You will be able to choose one from three soup selections and one from three main course selections. Check back in a few days to see the menu selection. There will be water, coffee, and tea available to drink. You will also be able to purchase wine, beer, and sodas at our cash bar! It is a truly wonderful evening! You don't want to miss it so purchase your tickets. Poster Design by Jacob Jarvel.
