The Streetcar Company

Community theatre in the Lakes Region since 1972

Online ticket sales for All Together Now are now closed.  Tickets may still be purchased at the door.
Streetcar Company is proud to announce that our Fall 2021 musical revue show, All Together Now, will be performed live at the Belknap Mill on November 12, 13, 14.  Tickets are available online, or at the door.

This unique show features 15 songs from various musicals, intermingled in an original story written and directed by David Nelson.  Many original characters tell our tale of love, deceit, redemption, villainy, comedy, and betrayal.  This family-friendly show is sure to delight audiences of all ages.  Don't miss your opportunity to see this one-of-a-kind show, live at the Belknap Mill in downtown Laconia, NH.

Streetcar Company is excited to announce...

Streetcar Company is excited to announce we will be presenting MTI's All Together Now, a musical review.  It will feature fifteen songs from popular shows new and old, even some that have not yet been licensed for community theatre presentation until now.

As has been the case with many businesses and organizations, the pandemic has turned things upside down for over a year now.  Many theatre groups have had to pause production of live in-person theatre until it became safe to resume.  Things seem to be taking a turn for the better lately, and theatre is returning to the stage.  Streetcar Company has suffered an extended blackout due to our reliance on privately owned venues to host our productions; many local theaters and auditoriums have still not felt comfortable enough to book entertainment.  We are hopefully reaching the end of this last hurdle, and we are confident that Streetcar shows may resume.

 

As Streetcar is a non-profit community volunteer driven organization, we rely on the amazing people of the Lakes Region to make our magic happen.  We have so many dedicated folks working hard to keep our shows entertaining you.  However due to the pandemic shutting down shows, it also shuts down our ability to sustain a workable company income to continue our efforts.  MTI’s All Together Now has been arranged as a world-wide gift to community theatres everywhere who have felt this financial burden, and they have granted companies access to perform this show as a fundraiser to help get us back on our singing and dancing feet.

 

You will be hearing much more about this wonderful show in the coming days.  We are counting on our incredibly talented actors and actresses to come out and audition for the show; there are so many numbers to perform that there is sure to be something to delight all.  Audition dates have not been set yet, but will likely be in early October, and further information will be available soon.

 

Streetcar Company is the longest running community theatre organization in the Lakes Region; next year we will celebrate our 50th year of bringing live theatre to the community.  We are counting on our area residents to come out and enjoy this show, so that we can continue to entertain you for many years to come.

Show dates will be Friday November 12th through Sunday November 14th, and it will be performed in Laconia, NH; the exact venue to be determined soon.  The show will be directed by local resident, longtime Streetcar member, and everybody's favorite Donkey, David Nelson.  Thank you, and see you soon!

The above graphic shows the current list of all the songs that can be chosen from in MTI's All Together Now.  The exact selection of songs in Streetcar's upcoming production has not been determined yet, and will be decided on based on a number of variables.
For now, we invite you to browse through the list so you can get a taste of what this show might feature, and so auditioners can think about what they might like to perform!

"The Birds" is a short story by the British writer Daphne du Maurier, first published in 1952 and was the inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic. This version of “The Birds” has been adapted for the stage by Irish playwright, screenwriter and director Conor McPhereson.
This story takes place in New England in the near future as the birds have already begun to take their spot at the top of the food chain. But this story isn’t about the “The Birds”. It’s about three people, or what’s left of them, as they try to co-exist in this new reality while a mysterious neighbor watches their every
