A Special Event Produced in Conjunction with Good JoB Productions
by Alex Webb
Histories of the Civil War introduce us to the pain beyond the battlefield: of brother-to-brother rifts, families both North and South torn by the events and the issues, and the endurance of love. Author Alex Webb researched evidence that women disguised themselves as men in order to serve and fight, demonstrated in title character Amelia. Her search for her missing husband leads her to masquerade as a man in order to gain access to the storied prison where she finds him to be held. This is the story of her encounters along the way, told with poignancy and adventure that challenges us with the question “how far will you go without giving up?”
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30pm
Sunday at 2pm
Tickets from $14-$20
Ticket purchases are non-refundable.

Good JoB! Productions was established by co-founders of the Winnipesaukee Playhouse, Johanna and Bryan Halperin. The couple have been producing theatre together since 2001. They first read Amelia in 2011 and were struck by its tragically beautiful story of abiding love. Ever since, the couple has looked for the right opportunity to produce the piece with the right actors. When they met Wayne Asbury and Sheree Owens, they knew the time had come and had a successful run at the Hatbox Theatre in Concord in April of 2019. The cast and crew are all excited to have the chance to remount the production and share Amelia with Lakes Region audiences at the Playhouse.
