Our Town

Thornton Wilder’s  Pulitzer Prize winning play is a timeless drama of life in an imaginary New Hampshire town.  Our Town is an American Classic  with near universal appeal. 

“Our Town explores the relationship between two young Grover’s Corners neighbors, George Gibbs and Emily Webb, whose childhood friendship blossoms into romance, and then culminates in marriage. When Emily looses her life in childbirth, the circle of life portrayed in each of the three acts of Our Town–growing up, adulthood, and death–is fully realized.” thorntonwilder.com

Marblehead Little Theatre
and Rebel Shakespeare Company
Summer Teen Shakespeare Intensive

Cymbeline

Written by William Shakespeare

Performances at the MLT Firehouse Theater August 17-19

The Rebel Shakespeare Teen Intensive and The Marblehead Little Theatre are  once again joining forces this August with the production of William Shakespeare’s Cymbeline.

(Wikipedia)  Cymbeline or sometimes referred to as Cymbeline, King of Britain, is a play by William Shakespeare set in Ancient Britain and based on legends that formed part of the Matter of Britain concerning the early Celtic British King Cunobeline. Although listed as a tragedy in the First Folio, modern critics often classify Cymbeline as a romance or even a comedy. Like Othello and The Winter’s Tale, it deals with the themes of innocence and jealousy. While the precise date of composition remains unknown, the play was certainly produced as early as 1611.


Rebel Shakespeare Company was founded in 1990 by Keri Cahill with twelve students and a staff of two. Since then, under Keri’s active involvement as artistic director, over 10,000 children and teens have participated in Rebel Shakespeare workshops, private classes, school residencies, and drama therapy programs. Rebel Shakespeare was first housed in Manchester-by-the-Sea, then spent many years at Fort Sewall in Marblehead and, later, Winter Island in Salem, MA. In 2016, Keri retired from active involvement in Rebel Shakespeare.

In 2017, with Keri’s blessing, Rebel Shakespeare Company was formally organized as a Massachusetts non-profit corporation. The company now operates under the guidance of a board of directors drawn in part from Rebel parents committed to continuing Keri’s vision and amazing work. Rebel Shakespeare programs are process-oriented. Actors of all ages in the summer program spend their days exploring plays through in-depth discussion, improvisation, movement, creative writing, visual arts, and rehearsal. Directors are on hand to facilitate the active participation of all students and to promote an environment of mutual support.

The directors are drawn from students (many of them former Rebels) with backgrounds in voice, movement, choreography, stage combat, and improvisation. All share a great love of working with children. No matter what age, every actor is considered an integral and equal member of the production team. Throughout the sessions, the company aspires to help each individual student to explore his/her own unique abilities and to encourage creative risk-taking, with the nurturing support of peers.
