Alchemists' Workshop

Alchemists' Workshop is in its 20th year of doing original performing arts in musical theatre, community films based on NH stories, youth theatre camps and seniors suffering from dementia (TimeSlips).

Our company is composed of twelve NH artists (actors, singers, musicians, designers, directors, playwrights and composers).  We tour up to four original musicals each year, average a community film each year, do up to five summer camps and work with eight assisted living programs on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.  We also do special projects where we combine aspects of our artistic work.  These include our Guerilla Theatre Kick Butts project using 12 foot tall puppets to education teens about tobacco and vaping abuse, our Good Food interactive puppets for pre-schoolers and our Business workshops in communications and team building.

National awards we have won have included:

            Midtown International Theatre Festival best score for Georgia O'Keeffe Paints Paradise.

            National Childrens' Theatre best new play award for Orphan Train Stories

            Childrens' Theatre Foundation for best new play for Ocean Born Mary
