Attended the Ghost Light Haunting Experience in Oct 2023. Was a fantastic show, the story line, settings and especially the actors. Would happily attend another of their shows if ever in the area again.

This was a fabulous, funny, engaging performance! The young actors were superb. So looking forward to sharing their energy and talents in the upcoming performance of Beauty and the Beast. It helps that Jean's Playhouse (formerly Paper Mill Theater) is so spacious with very comfortable seating and provides immediate interaction with the performers.

I went with friends, while on vacation in New Hampshire, to attend a performance of "Seussical, the Musical" at this quite amazing theatre. It was a wonderful experience to see this show performed by such a professional cast. The whole experience was wonderful. The seating arrangement is outstanding and there is really not a bad seat in the house. I would definitely return there on my next trip to the area. Without question!!!!

In an era when divisive politics permeates so much of our lives, I seek opportunities like the theater to avoid the divisiveness that is out there. It's a chance for everyone to set aside their differences and to be entertained.

The Putnam County Spelling Bee is supposed to be all about having fun. It's a light comedy, after all. But no... Jeans Playhouse inserted several political jabs that were gratuitous at best. Even though I may have agreed with what was said, this was gauche. I spent a lot of money to have an escape. Thanks for ruining that opportunity, Jeans Playhouse. You could have brought people together but instead you reinforced what drives them apart.

We're sorry that your experience was one of disappointment, because most audiences thoroughly enjoyed the humor, pathos, and music of this look at a slice of time when losers turn out to be the winners. Jean's did not arbitrarily insert political jabs; in fact, the authors of the script have allowed/planned for several places where it is expected the producers will use updated/contemporary references to issues/headlines.

We attended Seussical at Jean's Playhouse while on vacation in New Hampshire. To say we were impressed would be an understatement. The choreography and harmonies were great, the dancing was fantastic, and the energy of the actors was super. It was a great production for all ages. We were also impressed by the theatre itself. We weren't sure what to expect for a small town but the seats were comfortable and roomy and the theater itself seems fairly new. The only downfall of the experience was that the house was not full. These performers deserve to play to a full, appreciative house.

I've got to at least give credit that they are trying to keep the local arts alive, but I have seen more poor performances here than good. Ridiculous prices.

We're sorry you didn't enjoy your experience. November through May we have a large variety of comedians and cover bands that come in so it looks like you were not a fan of the particular act you saw in April. Again, we are sorry to hear that. We are told by many that our prices of $15 - $25 depending on the act is lower than other neighboring venues.

Bought tickets on line for the Matinee of Lend Me a Tenor. We paid $25 per ticket but found that our hotel was offering them for $20. However, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed some very professional actors in a lovely, clean, air conditioned setting. All around, the prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend a visit to Jean's Playhouse in Lincoln, NH.

This is not New York nor Boston. This is northern New Hampshire community theatre at its best. The production of The Addams Family was over the top. The cast were all very talented with both vocals and choreography. The set design was well done. Kudos to all

Went to see the production of Cinderella this August. Very good, animated cast, some very creative effects for a small playhouse. I think this is a wonderful place, When we went it was a Thursday. I think anyone would enjoy these productions, but especially families. Make a point to stop here one night while you take a break from hiking!
