Alumni Show
You're a Good Man Charlie Brown

Based on the Comic Strip "Peanuts" by Charles M. Schulz
Book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner

Originally Produced in New York by Arthur Whitelaw and Gene Persson
Originally Directed in New York by Joseph Hardy

Directed by Micheal Trzos with Maia Gilmour
Sponsored by Farnum Insulators

"When it comes to Broadway musicals, there are a handful of shows that almost every theatergoer is familiar with. Whether it’s South Pacific, Grease or Les Miserables there is usually a song or two that anyone can sing along to. These musicals are timeless. They carry a history with them and yet leave room for exploration. That's why reviving “You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown” as this year’s alumni show is so exciting! It gives us the chance to explore a world created by Charles Schulz and connect it to modern times while paying tribute to America’s most lovable characters. Not to mention a cast made up of adult actors who entertained the Brattleboro community as children. So please, join us this June in welcoming back the Peanuts Gang to NEYT once again! Good grief, you won't regret it!"

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Peter Gould

Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, has been living on a primitive island with his fifteen-year-old daughter, Miranda, for the past 12 years. His dukedom had been usurped by his own brother, Antonio, whom Prospero had entrusted to manage the affairs of government while he was concentrating on his study of the liberal arts. With the support of Alonso, the King of Naples, Antonio conspired against his brother to become the new Duke of Milan.

Melodrama Festival Two
Flora of the Flowershop
written by Betty Tracy Huff
directed by Michael Trzos and Zoe Guttenplan

Small businesses are the fabric that makes up a thriving community. That's why Flora and her friends opened a flower shop to help serve every occasion--Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Groundhog Day, Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, Bubble Dath Day and even National Spinach Day! (Ew gross). But there is just one problem. Flora’s Flower Shop is not thriving and the evil villain Carruthers B. Coldheart has forced his hand into the flowerpot to uproot the business once and for all. The only hope now is to help Flora solve the puzzle of how to grow a mysterious and ancient flower worth 100 million dollars and to find a hero clever enough to outsmart Coldheart. Or can she just do it herself? Find out this summer!

Sponsored by Hazel Restaurant, Rich Earth Institute, and The Richards Group

A side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
