Bravo! Inexpensive theater weekends in November around the Seacoast!
Do you know how much Hamilton tickets are going for these days? Neither do I, but I bet it’s a lot. Here’s the good news—you can see plenty of live theater here on the Seacoast for much less. What a great way to introduce kids to the local arts without breaking the bank.
