"Jekyll & Hyde" The Musical 

Oct 28, 29, 30, & Nov 4, 5

Synopsis:
The epic struggle between good and evil comes to life on stage in the musical phenomenon, Jekyll & Hyde. Based on the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson and featuring a thrilling score of pop-rock hits from multi-Grammy- and Tony-nominated Frank Wildhorn and double-Oscar- and Grammy-winning Leslie Bricusse, Jekyll & Hyde has mesmerized audiences the world over.
An evocative tale of two men – one, a doctor, passionate and romantic; the other, a terrifying madman – and two women – one, beautiful and trusting; the other, beautiful and trusting only herself– both women in love with the same man and both unaware of his dark secret. A devoted man of science, Dr. Henry Jekyll is driven to find a chemical breakthrough that can solve some of mankind's most challenging medical dilemmas. Rebuffed by the powers that be, he decides to make himself the subject of his own experimental treatments, accidentally unleashing his inner demons along with the man that the world would come to know as Mr. Hyde.

"A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultous Acts"

December 2022

From the author of Faith County and Faith County II comes the funniest Christmas Carol ever. The Styckes Upon Thump Repertory Company embarks on their fifteenth annual tour of the Dickens classic. When the company's diva feigns illness, certain the production will be canceled, this merry troupe of over the hill and upstart actors carry on without her. Roles are shuffled and the sweet understudy suddenly finds herself on stage knowing only one line of dialogue. She has written her part in and on almost everything, including the Christmas pudding!

 

Midway through the doomed performance, the diva rushes in to reclaim her role. Total mayhem ensues as the company scrambles to keep the show going while everything goes hilariously wrong.

Stay tuned for more regarding auditions!

HISTORY OF THE SCENIC THEATER 

August 2022 

Erected in 1914 after a tragic fire that destroyed the old hall and most of Pittsfield's Civil War memorabilia, this Colonial Revival style commercial building was the first in town to have a slanted floor made specifically for showing "moving pictures." 


In 1925 when Grand Army of the Republic membership declined, the building was sold to the American Legion. Several patriotic organizations continued to meet on the upper floors and the G.A.R. Theater on the first floor was renamed the Liberty Theater. In 1937 the building was again sold and the Theater was renamed The Scenic. 


Movies ceased in 1991 and since that time the building has been the home of the renowned Pittsfield Players.
