KIDS’ THEATER WORKSHOP TO PRESENT SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN, JR.

The Pittsfield Players’ Kid’s Theater Workshop is currently in rehearsal for this season’s presentation of Singin’ In The Rain, Jr. The show will run at the Scenic Theatre on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 23, 24 and 25, at 7:30 pm each evening. In addition, there will be two matinee performances on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 21 and 22, at 12:30 pm for local schools and home schoolers, so that 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 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 May Schultz as Lina Lamont. Newcomer Christopher Dudley plays Cosmo Brown, Don Lockwood’s pal. Justin Greene takes on the role of RF Simpson, 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 policeman and an elocution teacher—and Essence Bourque is an elocution teacher as well. Joe Molloy appears as a sound technician, Sam, and also as a suave Broadway Host singer. Also included in the cast are Matthew Swenton, Skye Paziale, Abby Cote, April Keyes, Wanda Anderson, Spencer Griffin, Peter Dudley, Johnny Anderson, Kolbey Ryan, Dylan Cunningham, Cecily Schultz, Courtney Butler, Kaylyn John-Zensky, Jaden Beattie, Madeline Decker, Addy Shanyo, Alex Keyes, April Keyes, Mabel Johnson, Michaela St. George, Damonica Charles, Olivia Charles, Addison Clark, Olivia LaValley, Alyssa LaValley,Olivia Cunningham, Jaylea Thomas Carly Griffin, and Faith Griffin.

Go ahead,

 “Eat Your Heart Out”

this spring

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.

Director 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.
