Dickens’ Christmas Carol,

 A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts

The Pittsfield Players Annual Christmas Show What exactly IS a Dickens’ Christmas Carol, A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts? You may ask. Here's the scoop; "From the author of Faith County and Faith County II comes the funniest Christmas Carol ever. The Styckes Upon Thump Repertory Company embarks on their fifteenth annual tour of the Dickens classic. When the company's diva feigns illness, certain the production will be canceled, this merry troupe of over the hill and upstart actors carry on without her. Roles are shuffled and the sweet understudy suddenly finds herself on stage knowing only one line of dialogue. She has written her part in and on almost everything, including the Christmas pudding! Midway through the doomed performance, the diva rushes in to reclaim her role. Total mayhem ensues as the company scrambles to keep the show going while everything goes hilariously wrong."

The Pittsfield Players will still be hosting our annual FREE Christmas show to the community on Thursday December 8 at 7:30 PM at the Scenic Theater; we will also be offering more than one chance to see the show with a ticket price of $12.

The FREE THURSDAY showing of Dickens’ Christmas Carol, A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts, directed by Marty Williams and produced by Meggin Dail, will be open seating but the rest of the shows will be reserved seating on Friday, Saturday and Sunday December 9, 10 & 11 plus Friday and Saturday, December 16 & 17. Friday and Saturday shows at 7:30 pm, Sunday at 2 pm.

Because of the amount of time and effort put into this raucously funny Christmas themed show, the director and actors felt they needed to give you every opportunity to enjoy the work put into this Dickens Christmas Carol gone horribly awry. You’re reading that right, the Pittsfield Players Christmas show will be FREE on THURSDAY night Dec. 8 (tickets still needed for this show) but we will also give you FIVE MORE times to see it for the low cost of $12.

             AUDITIONS ANNOUNCED FOR                EAT YOUR HEART OUT

Director Mike Hobson will hold auditions for the Players’ March presentation "Eat Your Heart Out". Mike will be casting three men and two women in an ensemble cast. Auditions will be held Sunday and Monday, December 18 and 19, at 7 pm each evening. The show will run March 24, 25, 31 and April 1 and 2.

The show tells the story of Charlie, an out of work actor currently working as a waiter. The scene is a series of hilarious encounters in Manhattan restaurants both elegant and shabby. By changing the tablecloths in the course of the action, the basic setting of three tables and six chairs becomes another place. The action is uninterrupted and the comedy never stops. The other performers play several parts; the girl desperately trying to eat snails and oysters to please her fiancÚ, the middle aged lovers so intent on each other that they cannot order dinner; the rich, embittered astrologer; the timid man who never gets a waiter; the agents, directors, actors, and waiters; an amusing gallery of characters whose stories intertwine and finally involve Charlie.

The cast requirements for this comedy by Nick Hall are three men and two women. Auditioners will be asked to read from the script.

For more information, contact Mike at mike@pittsfieldplayers.com.
