New Hampshire’s summer theater season and satirical film will cross paths at an event on June 2nd at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord. On this evening, Red River Theatres will screen The Producers, the 2005 film starring Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane based on their smash Broadway musical. Meanwhile, in the lobby before the lights go down, the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources and the New Hampshire Theatre Awards will be sponsoring the New Hampshire Summer Theatre Fair. The doors will open at 6:30 pm and will be open to the general public as well as those attending the screening of The Producers. Representatives from theatres all over the state will be present with information about their organizations and their summer seasons. This is a great opportunity to see what is happening in the world of New Hampshire theatre, to check out their schedules and even purchase tickets to their summer shows!

Those attending the screening will be entered into a drawing for one of several pairs of tickets to the summer shows produced by the organizations present.

The event is sponsored by Red River Theatres in association with the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources and the New Hampshire Theatre Awards.

The Producers (2005/PG-13/135 minutes)
Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick star in the roles that they originated in the smash Broadway adaptation of Mel Brooks' original 1968 film. Also starring Uma Thurman and Will Ferrell, this film is a comic romp through the workings of Broadway producing as an accountant and a producer set out to stage a flop so they can cook the books and make a lot of money. With a musical called "Springtime for Hitler", how can they go wrong? But their luck runs out: the show is a hit.

Theatre Fair 6:30-7:30
Free Doors open at 6:30,
show starts @ 7:30
