Tolkien story gets new life in TheatreWorks' debut show


The two directors have been artistic partners since they married 25 years ago. They also direct the Blue Window Arts Group which produces the Christmas show, “Not Your Typical Silent Night” at The Rogers Center for the Arts at Merrimack College, originally presented at Andover’s Old Town Hall before it grew to be too large for that venue.

Technical Designer Tom Blanford of Andover first worked with Allison and Lindahl on their holiday show when he was in high school, and since graduating from Notre Dame is back working in Boston. He is doing sound and lighting design and set construction for “The Hobbit.”

Producing partners are Kathy Abisso, Chris Christoforo and Nancy Vogler of Andover.

Tickets are $10 and on sale at Learning Express at 32 Park St., and Andover Youth Services at 37 Pearson St.
