NH Unscripted was created to help showcase and highlight local talent in the
NH arts community.
The idea was to give local residents richer insight into the lives of the
performers, directors, and backstage people whose work they’ve enjoyed over
the years. People love to know what drives their neighbors and friends to
do the things they do. What are their backgrounds, other talents, things they
like or don’t like? It’s what makes reality tv and talk shows so compelling.
Theater, music, and live performances all greatly impact our communities.
Currently, there are over 200 theater groups in NH, both community and
professional. The Capitol Center for the Arts, the Palace Theater, the Seacoast
Rep, Meadowbrook, etc., are testaments to New Hampshire’s appetite for the
arts. We aim to give them a little deeper look into their artists.
