70 GIRLS 70

Directors Meggin Dail, Jeff Gregoire and Carole Neveux have announced their cast for this fall’s musical 70 Girls 70, and you’ll want to mark your calendars right away so as not to miss this hilarious show with a veteran ensemble cast. The directors had a great turn out for this toe-tapping production written by John Cander and and Fred Ebb, the same duo that brought Cabaret and Chicago to the stage.

Based on the play Breath of Spring by Peter Coke, adapted by Joe Masteroff, the show tells the story of a group of senior citizens who resort to shoplifting in order to save their retirement home from the wrecking ball...with hilarious results.

The show runs at the Scenic Theatre Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 13, 14 and 15 and again on Friday and Saturday, November 20 and 21. All shows are at 7:30 pm, except for the Sunday matinee on November 15, which is at 2 pm. Tickets, which are $17 per person, can be purchased through Ticket Leap. Just click on the "Buy Tickets" button. Tickets can also be reserved by calling the Scenic Theater at (603) 435-8852.

The show is sponsored by Kentek and Martha and Richard Moloy.

The show features Maye Hart as Ida Dodd, a retired school teacher who becomes the ring leader of the Sussex Arms Hotel “gang”. Maye is usually directing shows, but she was last seen acting on the Scenic stage as the grandmother in Autumn Garden in 2008. Her gang includes fellow residents Gert, a former store detective, played by newcomer Cathy Williams. The gang also includes Eunice, played by Lena Luongo, who starred as Mama in I Remember Mama, and Eunice is engaged to Walter, played by Angelo Gentile who last appeared as Emile deBeque in last fall’s South Pacific. And let’s not forget Harry, played by newcomer Marty Williams.

The Sussex Arms has a restaurant in the lobby called the Cornucopia, and Melba (Gerri Casey, who appeared as Bloody Mary in South Pacific as well as Honey Raye in last spring’s Dearly Beloved.) and Fritzi (Jean Gentile, who last appeared as Miss Dorothy Brown in Thoroughly Modern Millie) work in the restaurant.

Eddie (newcomer Jared Griffin) is the bell hop for the Hotel, which also houses Edna and Marvin Whitaker (Nella and Mike Hobson—Nella appeared as Patsy Parker in Dearly Beloved and Mike has been in many shows including Proof), Mr. and Mrs. McIllehenny (Mal Cameron—last seen in I Remember Mama, as well as in many other Players’ productions - and Vicki Watson—last seen in South Pacific ), as well as residents Chet (Uncle Chris in I Remember Mama, Dave Pollard (Pappy Finn in Big River), newcomer Jean Cram, Elisha Griffin (South Pacific), Dee Dee Pitcher (Mrs. Frake in State Fair) and Bea Douglas (Mrs. Meers in Thoroughly Modern Millie). And don’t forget Sadie, who runs a local fur store, played by Margot Keyes (Thoroughly Modern Millie).

With all these talented actors, the show promises to be a smash hit. Get ready for laughs galore, some geriatric dance moves and hummable music in a wonderful evening. Don’t miss 70 Girls 70!
