Each summer, fall, winter and spring season they produce adaptations of popular Broadway musicals that the whole family will enjoy. The Monday cast is led by the exceptionally talented team of Co-Directors: Hannah Rosenberg and Linda Goetz. Hannah recently became a part of Newton Theatre Company as an actor and Development Director.

There is still a chance to sign up for “Hello Dolly” on Mondays, September 17th – December 17th, rehearsals 6:30 –8:00 pm. An all-time Broadway favorite, this show is the story of matchmaker Dolly Levi and her wooing of grumpy Horace Vandergelder. The setting is turn-of-the-century New York City, with its shops, famous restaurants, and plenty of young New Yorkers enjoying the scene. Registration and information is at www.newtonyouthplayers.com.
