Milford Area players to present ‘A Few Good Men’

MILFORD – Milford Area Players, winner of the 2013, 2011, and 2009 New Hampshire Theatre Award for Best Production in Drama/Comedy for Community Theatre, is proud to present “A Few Good Men” by Aaron Sorkin March 9-18 at the Amato Center for the Performing Arts, 56 Mont Vernon St., Route 13N.

This Broadway hit about the trial of two Marines for complicity in the death of a fellow Marine at Guantanamo Bay sizzles on stage. The Navy lawyer, a callow young man more interested in softball games than the case, expects a plea bargain and a cover up of what really happened. Prodded by a female member of his defense team, the lawyer eventually makes a valiant effort to defend his clients and, in so doing, puts the military mentality and the Marine code of honor on trial.

The cast for “A Few Good Men” include Roger Hurd, Tom Partridge and Larry Watson of Amherst; Mike Colena of Hollis; James Haupt of Hudson; Amy Agostino of Londonderry; Anja Parish of Manchester; Chris Avery of Merrimack; Alex Lacourse and Max Maloney of Milford; Max Chittister, Len Deming, Kevin Linkroum and Patrick McCarty of Nashua; and Rick Nantel of New Ipswich. The play is directed by Stephen Post of Manchester.

“A Few Good Men” will be staged by the Milford Area Players for two weekends, March 9-18, with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Advance tickets are available at Toadstool Bookshop and online at www.MilfordAreaPlayers.org. Tickets also are available at the door. The theater is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible.
