Students of the Winnipesaukee Playhouse Education Department Present
HARRIET THE SPY

A beloved children’s book will be brought to life when the Education Department presents Harriet the Spy, based on the novel by Louise Fitzhugh and written by Leslie Brody.
 
Considered a “milestone” in children’s literature, Harriet the Spy tells the story of a well-to-do, eleven-year-old named Harriet M. Welsch who aspires to be a great writer one day. To get herself started, she compiles her thoughts about everyone she knows – her classmates, her friends, her neighbors – into a notebook. When her journal of blunt and often awful observations falls into the wrong hands, mayhem ensues as the students read everything she’s ever written about them.  The classmates attempt to prank and catch the girl they’ve dubbed “a spy” as Harriet works to repair her friendships. 

The production is directed by Patte Sarausky, the director of last year’s popular production of The Jungle Book.  It features a cast of over 20 local students led by Riley DeGange as Harriet.  

Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2pm. It is generously sponsored by New Hampton School.
