Amplified Arts Looks To Invigorate Local Arts With Theatre, Music and Cinema, Next Production Coming Soon

CLAREMONT, NEW HAMPSHIRE - Amplified Arts seeks to invigorate the community of artists located in Sullivan County by offering a nurturing environment for exploration of new works, artist’s collaboration, training new talent and making the arts accessible to a wide spectrum of the general public, while also "amplifying" the creative economy by making Claremont and Sullivan County a destination for great art and entertainment.

Amplified Arts also seeks to promote local artists through great theatrical works, engaging live music, eclectic art and one-of-a-kind cinema experiences while providing an affordable theatre space to local production companies, in order to perfect their craft as well as a function space where local organizations can promote their mission through special programming and events.

Now, after the recent successful launch of their early career arts program "The Academy" and their acclaimed production of "The Importance of Being Earnest", Amplified Arts latest series dubbed "Pints & Playwrights" brings "staged-ish" reading of classic plays into bars and restaurants around Sullivan County.

The next performance in this unique series will be Shakespeare’s "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" and the aim is to provide an open and informal production featuring anyone (18+) who likes creative and somewhat informal theatre in intimate spaces. Hence, a three rehearsal maximum, scripts in one hand and maybe a drink in the other (for those over 21, of course).

These productions run about one hour and 45 minutes and involve little in the way of stage dressing or costume, however, don’t let that fool you... because all it takes to put on a good show is two boards and a passion and they've got that in spades! So come out to this all-ages show, grab a drink and/or dinner and let us spin you a tale or two! There is no charge for the show, just pay what you will and tip your server of course!

* The Auditions, (ages 18 and over) is Saturday, July 30 from 4 to 6:00 p.m.
* The show date (open to all ages) is Thursday, August 25 at 6:30 p.m.
