NYA Drama Presents Their Spring Production: The Actor’s Nightmare

Yarmouth, Maine, May 6, 2024: North Yarmouth Academy (NYA) Drama is excited to present Christopher Durang’s hilarious comedy, The Actor’s Nightmare. An accountant named George (or is it Stanley?) finds himself unexpectedly onstage, filling the leading roles in four different and simultaneous plays. He’s never been to a rehearsal and doesn’t know his lines but tries desperately to fill the spotlight and be entertaining. Come for the laughter, stay for the custard… (Yes, there really will be custard!)

All shows performed in NYA’s Safford Auditorium, 148 Main St., Yarmouth.

Show days and times:

  • Friday, May 10 at 7:00 p.m.
