NOVEMBER 11: FALL FAMILY FARM DAY IN TROY

Do the kids have the day off from school in observance of Veterans Day?

Bonus? Pack your bathing suits, because swimming in the indoor pool will also be available all day.

NOVEMBER 15-24: “LITTLE WOMEN: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL” IN NASHUA

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s real life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but when publishers seem uninterested, her dear friend Professor Bhaer suggests that Jo write more of herself and her personal experience. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War Massachusetts. This performance is produced by Peacock Players and takes place November 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 and 24.

NOVEMBER 29 – DECEMBER 1: JOURNEY TO THE NORTH POLE IN NORTH CONWAY

If you’re like many families who like to kick start the Christmas season as soon as the Thanksgiving table is cleared, then head to the Conway Scenic Railroad in late November. You and your family will board the train for a two-hour adventure to the North Pole and back again. Along the way, you’ll be served hot chocolate as well as some of Santa’s favorite treats. Once you’ve arrived at the North Pole, you’ll be escorted by Santa’s elves up to the North Pole Theater, leaving your Santa letters at the Post Office and visiting with print shop elves along the way.
