KIDS’ THEATER WORKSHOP TO PRESENT SINGIN’ IN
THE RAIN, JR.
The Pittsfield Players’ Kids’ Theater Workshop
will present the classic musical Singing’ In
The Rain, Jr. at The Scenic Theatre in
February, and an eager group of kids ages 8 to
18 have begun rehearsals and are already dancing
and singing their hearts out. Directed by Maye
Hart, the show will run at The Scenic in two
matinee performances for local schools on
February 21 and 22, and then the show will open
to the general public and run Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, February 23, 24 and 25 at 7:30 pm
each evening. Tickets, which are $12 for adults
and $8 for students under 12, will go on sale at
the end of January.
The show contains many of the classic musical
numbers from the original movie, including “Make
‘Em Laugh”, “Lucky Star”, “Moses Supposes”, the
classic “Singin’ In The Rain”, and a dance
number to “Broadway Melody”. The Kids’ Theater
Workshop is a program by kids, for kids, which
teaches children ages 8 to 18 about all aspects
of theater. Kids perform on stage, build sets,
paint sets, work in the technical areas such as
lighting, sound and stage management, and learn
the basic discipline of theater. And they have a
fantastic time doing it!

“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.
