The ROCKIN’ DADDIOS / January 8th at 7 pm (Manchester)

They are well known for their great harmonies and are known to include audience participation along with their stage antics. This is a fun group of guys! Join them (and their band) for an amazing night of Doo-Wop music that will keep your toes tapping as we stroll down memory lane! The Rockin Daddios will NOT disappoint!

WEEKEND COMEDY / January 21-23 (Manchester)

  • A couple in their late forties and a couple in their twenties have accidentally rented the same cottage for a weekend by mistake. They decide to share it and we watch the comedic clash between generations. It’s home spun humor strikes chords regardless of a viewer’s age and the laughter it kindles is as warm and spontaneous as the play’s dialogue and situations.
  • Featured on “Through the Stage Door” on WMNH 95.3 Sunday 1/9 at noon.

The Rex Theatre

23 Amherst Street ~ www.rextheatre.org (603)668-5588

FNC at The Rex: JOE YANNETTY / January 7th at 7:30pm

  • Join us for FRIDAY NIGHT COMEDY AT THE REX! Like most native East Bostonians Joe Yannetty is hilarious. He was raised in an inner city Italian neighborhood which means that being funny is not only a survival skill, it is in his blood. Where Joe grew up, if you’re not willing to kill somebody you had better make them laugh. In 2014 Joe was diagnosed and subsequently survived Stage 4 throat cancer, which has led him to Motivational Speaking and huge corporate events throughout the globe. Not only does he deliver an amazing message he will make you laugh while doing so. You will not find a more well rounded, more professional, or funnier entertainer.

LIVIN’ ON A BAD NAME / January 8th at 7:30pm
