A Bunch of Characters — 10/13/22

As New Hampshire’s fall theater season continues, we chat with several local actors hitting the stage over the next month. Find out what it takes for them to get into character and what makes their upcoming shows — from Murder on the Orient Express and The Crucible to Shrek the Musical, The Wind in the Willows and more — a must-see.

Also on the cover For the first time since 2019, the Taste of New Hampshire fundraising event is back in person (page 28). A new brewfest comes to Goffstown this weekend (page 29). It’s the return of the giant pumpkin boats during the annual Goffstown Pumpkin Weigh-off and Regatta (page 19).
