Kid’s Theater Workshop Rehearsing

MUSIC MAN, JR

The Pittsfield Players’ Kid’s Theater Workshop is currently in rehearsal for this season’s presentation of Music Man, Jr. The show will run at the Scenic Theatre on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 18, 19 and 20, at 7:30 pm each evening. In addition, there will be two matinee performances on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 16 and 17, at 12:30 pm for local schools and home schoolers, so that other kids might see their peers on stage and develop an interest in theater. Tickets for the evening shows are $8 for kids under 12 and $12 for adults and can be reserved by calling 435-8852. If you are interested in bringing a class or group of kids to the matinees, contact director Maye Hart at maye@pittsfieldplayers.com.

The show tells the story of traveling salesman and con man Harold Hill, who comes to River City, Iowa, hoping to sell the residents on the idea of a boy’s marching band. He soon runs into Marian Paroo, the local librarian, who sees through his con but also begins to fall in love with him. This classic musical by Meredith Wilson features great songs, dancing, and comedy.

The show features Turner Jennings as Harold Hill and Emma Molloy as Marian Paroo. Sarah May Schultz plays Marian’s mother, and Spencer Griffin plays Marian’s shy and reticent brother, Winthrop, and Isabella Cottrell plays Amarylis, a piano student of Marian’s. Ian Treadwell takes on the role of Mayor Shinn, and Lexie O’Brien plays his wife, Eulalie MacKechnie Shinn, and their daughters Zaneeta and Grace are played by Kaylyn John-Zensky and Faith Griffin, respectively. We have a town council and constable who can’t get along until Harold teaches them how to sing in harmony played by Joe Molloy (Jacey Squires), Alden English (Ewart Dunlop), Joe Garcia (Olin Britt), and AJ Robidas (Oliver Hix). Jacob Scruton takes on the role of Marcellus Washburn, an old friend of Harold’s who has gone straight and found himself a girlfriend, Ethel Tofflemeir, played by Katie O’Brien. Three town councilmen are married, and their parts are played by Tessa Keyes (Alma Hix), Wanda Anderson (Mrs. Squires), and April Keyes (Maud Dunlop). Johnny Anderson plays the role of Tommy Djilias, the local teenage heartthrob who’s taken a shine to Zaneeta Shinn. Also included in the cast are Cecily Schultz, April Keyes, Molly Keyes, Carly Griffin, Lily Michaud, Skye Parziale, Courtney Butler, Sabrina Sargent, Taylor Sargent, Damian Cunningham, Dylan Cunningham, Logan Connor, Kolbey Ryan, Addison Clark, Abby Cote, David Cote, Joseph Cote, Jordan Atherton, Samantha Simpson, Mabel Johnson, Dalton Swenson, Matthew Swenson, and Michaela St. George.

HOLMES FOR THE HOLIDAYS

 

Director Mike Hobson and Producer Jon Martin have begun rehearsals for this spring’s mystery/farce The Game’s Afoot, or Holmes for the Holidays. Set in December, 1936, this witty whodunit by author Ken Ludwig is an award winning play that will have audiences mentally engaged with its witty humor and surprising plot turns.

Two invited couples are played by Kevin Guimond as Felix Geisel, Margot Keyes as Madge Geisel, Chad Boutin as Simon Bright, and Vicki Watson as Aggie Wheeler. Cathy Williams plays the theater critic Daria Chase, whom Gillette invites as a surprise guest. And arriving at the Gillette mansion to officially investigate the report of strange events is Kim Tinkham, who portrays Inspector Goring.

Don’t miss this this rib-tickling mystery set for performances on March 11, 12, 18, and 19 for evening shows at 7pm and on March 20 for the Sunday matinee at 2pm.
