Tina Friml & American Musical at THT

Thanks to all those who attended MCP’s Play Date on Monday night! We had a great group of folks turn out, enjoying refreshments and some great conversation about potential future productions. We were entertained with a song from Eryn Diehl and Leigh Guptill from our upcoming spring musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (with musical director Jen Allred on piano) PLUS a fabulous set by local comic Tina Friml.

We hope you will come out to enjoy Tina Friml (Vermont’s Funniest Comedian of 2018 and credited as one of Vermont’s most influential female comedians by Seven Days) at Town Hall Theater on Saturday, March 16 at 7:30pm for an evening of the Vermont Comedy All-Stars, joined by fellow comics Tim Bridge, Tracy Dolan and Sky Sandoval.
