Revision to tonight’s FortNight performance!

There is a small revision to tonight's FortNight performance at Harlow's Pub in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

Because of the nature of our program and the show beginning at 5:00 PM, we are going to be editing the program to be performed without the live band.  The final two performances on the tour at The Monadnock Inn in Jaffrey as well as the Club at Good Fortune in Keene will still be with the full band!

Tonight's performance is still going on, and still remains "Pay/Donate What You Can."  Pay a dollar, pay a hundred, but still come have some great eats and drinks and enjoy the unique program of FortNight!

Today's video posted to the Facebook page is Kimberley Miller discussing her character of Sharon Carter.  Hope to see you tonight!

 

FortNight Live! Tomorrow Night!

Get ready, Peterborough!  We are going to rock Harlow's Pub in just about 24 hours from now!

Get your tickets today by clicking on "Tickets" above!  There are tickets left for all performances!
