The show tells the story of silent movie stars
Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont, the Hollywood
couple of the century, who find themselves
caught up in a new technology called talkies.
Don can handle the transfer to the new genre,
but what about Lina? And when new comer Kathy
Selden enters the scene and she has all the
talent to make it big in the new film industry,
how does it all work out? The show has all the
wonderful songs and dances from the classic
movie starring Debbie Reynolds, Gene Kelly and
Donald O’Connor and you can’t miss these great
kids in this classic musical.
The show features Turner Jennings as Don
Lockwood , Emma Molloy as Kathy Selden and Sarah

the big Hollywood producer, and Joe Garcia plays
director Dexter. Cecily Schultz handles the role
of gossip columnist Dora Bailey; Molly Keyes
plays Lina’s assistant Roz, and Emily Dunagin
takes on the role of Zelda, an other of Lina’s
confidantes. Jacob Scruton plays two roles—a

Bourque is an elocution teacher as well. Joe
Molloy appears as a sound technician, Sam, and

“Eat Your Heart Out”
Rehearsals are now underway for “Eat Your Heart
Out” and the cast and crew are working to
deliver a deliciously funny play to audiences at
The Scenic Theatre in Pittsfield this spring.
Mike Hobson and producer Jon Martin have teamed
up once again following their successful last
year’s production of The Game’s Afoot. They have
picked a comedy by author Nick Hall that
presents a unique look at the human situation.
Set in present time, “Eat Your Heart Out”
follows the plight of an out-of-work actor named
Charlie who waits tables in six New York City
restaurants while hoping for his big break in
show business. The remaining four cast members
portray multiple roles as customers who come in
the restaurants and interact with their waiter.
The steady flow of changing locations,
customers, and personal revelations provide the
audience with wonderfully amusing insights into
all the characters’ lives. And, with the action,
audiences will learn the proper way to eat
escargot and raw oysters.
A dynamic and high-spirited cast has been
selected for this mouthwateringly humorous show.
Jonathan Flower portrays Charlie, the waiter,
who is your server for the show. The four actors
playing multiple customer roles are Mike Towle
as Man, Vicki Watson as Woman, Tony Pfaff as
Boy, and Alexis Keyes as Girl.
So prepare yourself for a connoisseur’s delight
by marking your calendars and getting your
tickets to “Eat Your Heart Out,” performing
March 24, 25, 31 and April 1 for evening shows
at 7:30 p.m., and on April 2 for the Sunday
matinee at 2 p.m. All shows will be presented at
The Scenic Theatre, 6 Depot Street, Pittsfield.
Tickets will be available in March.
