tKAPOW is GROWING, and YOU can take us even further!

Season 16 took off running in July when we added a whole new production to our calendar - two, in fact!  Shakespeare on the Green allowed us to return to Macbeth, and to welcome an amazing all female company to create a delightfully funny A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
In late August, tKAPOW was honored to be named a Senior Fellow of the New Hampshire Dance Collaborative’s (NHDC) Accelerator program. NHDC founder Joan Brodsky said. “It’s undeniable that KAPOW is courageously taking on an important type of theater and is an enormous benefit to our community.” 

And we just keep on growing! In early September, we moved into a much larger suite on Hanover Street in Manchester. This new space has allowed us to bring all our props, set pieces, costumes, lighting and sound equipment into one location. The new space also features a big new studio for us to hold rehearsals and trainings.  

This fall we developed the NH Premiere of The Thanksgiving Play by Larissa FastHorse. We welcomed a Guest Choreographer and Assistant Intimacy Choreographer to our expanded creative team.  With this production, tKAPOW performed to the largest audiences we have ever had at the Bank of NH Stage. We also hosted a very important conversation with members of the Cowasuck Band of the Pennacook Abenaki and the Mashpee Wampanoag about the challenges Indigenous people face in our communities today. And for the first time ever, we were able to provide ASL Interpretation for Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.

In 2024 we will: 

  • continue to increase accessibility to our performances and programs
  • return to the Currier Museum for a staged reading based on objects in their collection
  • collaborate with community organizations around our winter production of On the
    Exhale
    , Martín Zimmerman’s one-woman show about gun violence in America
  • introduce our work to new audiences by performing at the Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith, NH
  • resume performances for student audiences in both Manchester and Concord

You can help us make the most of these new opportunities and keep the growing going! To sustain this momentum, will you make a gift to theatre KAPOW this giving season? Your support by December 31 keeps us putting stories on stage to create safe spaces to start conversations to begin to heal communities, families, and hearts.

Thank you,

Matt Cahoon
Artistic Director
