Cabaret For A Cure 2014

More Fun Than a Mammogram

 

This year’s Cabaret For Cure will be one you won’t soon forget; with songs titles such as “Somebody to Love” by Freddie Mercury, “Timeless to Me” from Hairspray sung by that infamous duo Angelo and Jean Gentile, “Carry On” by Fun and, of course, “Cabaret” the cast will quickly win your appreciation with their vocal harmonies and silly antics. We’ll also be serving up a little fun, hope, perhaps a drum solo by our adorable drummer, Jeff Fishwick and a glimpse of the Pittsfield Players’ fall musical, “South Pacific.”

If you don’t know how to have More Fun Than a Mammogram, let us show you. Walk through the Scenic Theatre doors and be treated to some gourmet refreshments; both savory and sweet, then pick up a ticket that will entitle you to raffle offerings galore. Then you will find the best seat in the house (because the Scenic Theatre has no bad seats) and be treated to an evening of music, memories, song, dance, hope, inspiration both serious and silly and leave knowing you made a difference, just by attending this fabulous event.

Raffle prizes include a handmade basket (size large!) by Stacy Davis of Davis Fuels; a Quilt by the ladies of The Dorcas Guild of Pittsfield’s First Congregational Church; a Bose Bluetooth mini sound system donated by WOKQ 97.5; a beautiful pink peony framed photograph by Susan Bleckmann; an amusing and appropriate satchel handcrafted by Pam Wilson, donated by Sergeant Richard Walter, Jr.; a gift certificate to Edible Arrangements donated by Gay-Ann Cooney; tickets to South Pacific donated by The Pittsfield Players;  tickets to Suessical the Musical donated by The Village Players; a gift certificate for a Christmas tree and decorated wreath ($75.00 value) donated by Sandy Burt and Neva Dun Farm, and more as the donations keep coming in! You can only win these items by coming to The Cabaret For A Cure on September 20.

The Cabaret was started three years ago with the generous help of our sponsors like Darrah Enterprises, Deb & Ken Jones, The Pittsfield Players and The Suncook Valley Sun. They help provide advertising, fund the licensing and sheet music, a place to rehearse and put on a show as well as the many incidentals that arise during the rehearsal and show process.

If you’re not familiar with The Cabaret For a Cure, now’s the time to check us out. The Cabaret is a fundraising adventure that shares music and stories of hope in an effort to raise money for both The American Cancer Society and The Pittsfield Players. Eighty percent of the ticket sales go to ACS while twenty percent go to The Pittsfield Players Sprinkler Fund. The raffle prize monies go directly to ACS while the refreshment donations are split 50/50 between Players and ACS.

If you are familiar with the Cabaret then you certainly don’t want to miss this one as it is ONE NIGHT ONLY, September 20 at the Scenic Theatre, 6 Depot Street, Pittsfield, NH. You will experience a night of fun and beautiful music, poignant messages, inspiring songs and pictures as well as becoming part of something so much bigger than ourselves. As one of the song lyrics goes; “When you help others, you can’t help helping yourself!”

Doors open at 6PM (general seating). Show starts at 7PM. Tickets for the show are $12.00, available at Jitters on Main Street in Pittsfield, by calling Meggin Dail at 736-8073 or at the door – but don’t wait, we tend to sell out! 


TUCKERSMANS AT 9 LIVE AT THE SCENIC OCTOBER 11

Packed with hot harmonies and funky fun, Tuckermans at 9 rolls into Pittsfield, New Hampshire, on October 11 at 7:30pm for a concert to benefit The Pittsfield Players and the Scenic Theatre. Tickets will be $12 per person and will go on sale by the end of the month.

Tuckermans at 9 has been performing since 2004, and this will be the contemporary a cappella group’s first appearance at the Scenic Theatre. The seven-voice “vocal band” performs contemporary a cappella versions of well-known pop, rock, blues, and light jazz favorites, mostly from the 1960s to today. "Our voices make all the music," explains Mark Miller, baritone singer and founder of T9, as fans have dubbed the group. "No instruments or pre-recorded instrumental tracks are ever used. Everything you hear, including what sounds like brass, electric guitars, or drums, is just us. Contemporary a cappella has become very popular from college campuses to worldwide concert venues, due in part to top groups such as Rockapella, Toxic Audio, Straight No Chaser, and Pentatonix.”

Based in the New Hampshire Seacoast, Tuckermans at 9 has entertained audiences from Boston and Massachusetts’ north and south shores to Lewiston, Maine, and in New Hampshire from Portsmouth to Nashua and into the Lakes Region. This concert is sponsored by Art Morse and all proceeds will go to the Players’ Sprinkler fund. Get set for a great night of musical entertainment. 


CAST FOR SOUTH PACIFIC NEEDS A

FEW MORE GOOD MEN

 

Director Maye Hart has chosen a cast for the Players’ upcoming fall production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific, but she’s still searching for a few good men to round out her chorus of sailors, Seabees and marines. Rehearsals have begun for this revival and The Players are looking forward to presenting another fabulous musical presentation for our audience. The show will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 7, 8 and 9, and Saturday and Sunday, November 14 and 15. All shows will be at 7:30 pm except the matinee on November 9, which will be at 2 pm. Tickets, which will go on sale in October, will be $17 per person. Stay tuned to Curtain Up and The Suncook Valley Sun for more ticket information.

The Players first presented South Pacific in 1983, under the direction of founder Roland Charron, and this revival promises to be every bit as good as that first show. South Pacific tells the story of nurse Nellie Forbush who is stationed on an island in the Pacific during World War II. She is falling in love with a Frenchman, Emile de Beque, who is a local plantation owner. Lt. Joseph Cable, a marine, has been assigned a special detail on the island, and he meets Bloody Mary, a local island merchant, who introduces him to her daughter, Liat. Will these romances last in spite of the war surrounding them?

The cast includes Catherine Martinez as Ensign Nellie Forbush and Angelo Gentile as Emile de Beque. Faith and Spencer Griffin will play Ngana, Emile’s daughter and Jerome, his son; Lena Luongo will appear as Juliette, Emile’s native servant; Gerri Casey will play the role of  Bloody Mary, with Shaima Al Hammadi as Liat, her daughter. Jen Pickard will play Bloody Mary’s assistant, and Daniel Scheys will take the role of Luther Billis, a sailor who knows how to make a buck even on an island in the middle of a war. Bill Schultz will play Carpenters’ Mate 2nd Class George Watts, aka Stewpot, and Turner Jennings will play The Professor, a sailor. Kevin Kennedy has the part of Lt. Joseph Cable, US Marines, with Nathan Strong as Capt. George Brackett, US Navy, Mike Hobson as Cmdr. William Harbison, US Navy, and Joel Dail as navy pilot Lt. Buzz Adams. Yeoman Herbert Quale, a sailor, will be played by Daren Brooks, Radio Oerator McCafferty will be played by Caleb Molloy, and Marty Gray and Keifer Archambault are rounding out the sailors, Seabees and Marines. Head Nurse Lt. Genevieve Marshall will be played by Lorraine LePage, with Cindi Bell as  Ensign Dinah Murphy, Vicki Watson as Ensign Janet McGregor and Alex Keyes, Ashley Pence, Ashley Connor and Elisha Griffin as nurse ensigns. French Island schoolgirls will be played by Jaden Beattie, Riley Kennedy, Halah Abdelwahid, Sarah May Schultz, and Emma Cox.  Gay-Ann Cooney will appear as a French Nun. We still need five or six more sailors, marines and Seabees.
