Special closing performance and party!
All ticket proceeds to benefit the NHA.
The performance is held at Centre Stage at the Nantucket United Methodist Church (2 Centre Street – side entrance on the alley) with the closing party to follow on the Whaling Museum rooftop.
This fun-for-all show has an original, contemporary score that provides first-time tourists and year-rounders alike with a comprehensive and comical telling of Nantucket’s history in a tight 70-minutes, packed with a laugh every second (which is approximately 4200 laughs per show, so bring your inhaler, just in case.)
From Maria Mitchell to Madaket Millie, the distinct characters of Nantucket’s past are brought to life by the sassy and salacious spirit of Nantucket: “Lady Grey” herself. She’s on a mission to educate two aspiring writers who have been tasked with writing (you guessed it) a MUSICAL about the island… on a very tight deadline!
With songs like “The Oldest/Newest House”, “It’s Cool to be a Quaker”, and “Ladies Run the Nation of Nantucket”, the show spans the island’s history from Native American lore to the progressive idealists of the mid-1800s, straight on up to the absurdly long line outside of “The Juice Bar” this very afternoon…!
