"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" AUDITIONS

Audition Dates | January 22 & January 23 at 7pm

Director | Meggin Dail

Fifteen-year-old math whiz Christopher Boone lives with his divorced dad in Swinton, a working-class town west of London. After being falsely accused of killing a neighbor’s dog, Christopher—who is brilliant but has difficulty dealing with the sounds and stresses of everyday life—decides to investigate the crime. The secrets he unearths prompt him to leave his trusted teacher and the familiar streets of his hometown for a life-changing train trip to London.

 

Based on Mark Haddon’s best-selling 2003 novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a thrilling and heartwarming adventure story featuring an unforgettable young hero.

"Jack of Diamonds"

Show Dates | May 19 - 21 2023

Director | Carole Neveaux & Producer | Jon Martin

Jack is a former jeweller who made his living buying and selling diamonds via late-night TV ads. He lives in a rather luxurious, privately-owned retirement home along with his fellow residents: the visually challenged techno-wizard Rose, the artistically gifted but forgetful Flora, and the narcoleptic beauty Blanche. Unbeknownst to the four of them, however, the man to whom they’ve entrusted their life savings - a smooth-talking financial advisor named Barney Effward - has been arrested for bilking his clients out of their savings through a Ponzi scheme.

 

Faced with financial ruin, the four suddenly find themselves confronting the author of their miserable fate when Effward is unexpectedly delivered among them – along with several million dollars in diamonds.

 

Pandemonium ensues as the four retirees try to find a way to exact their revenge, recoup their losses, and keep the authorities from discovering their plans.

TRAVELING TRAVESTY | HOLIDAY PRODUCTION 

A Message From The Director | Marty Williams

A Dickens’ Christmas Carol, A Traveling Travesty in Two Tumultuous Acts”. Well, the only real travesty was that, due to the weather, we were only able to bring this hilarious comedy to our audience twice. But, as with our production of this show six years ago, the Cast & Crew had wonderful time putting this show together. The hardest part of making this show was controlling the laughter during rehearsals. To say they had fun with it would be the ultimate understatement.

 

As a director, something I tell all my casts is about the 3 Fs of a successful show. They have to Focus in order to nail their role and bring it all together. I tell them to have Fun with it as that personal enjoyment is picked up and shared by the audience. And I tell them if they do the first two, the 3rd F will happen and they will be Fabulous! And by the reaction of our large audiences the mission was accomplished! Everyone seemed to enjoy this break from the stresses of the season. Laughter was nonstop and praise was high.

 

I’ve had the joy of directing this show five times over the last 20 years. And my favorite comment came from a member of our Pittsfield audience six years ago. “We thought we were coming to see the same old Christmas Carol and got Monty Python instead”. Yep, Mission accomplished! Thank You all for your continued support.

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE PITTSFIELD PLAYERS CAROLERS

December 2022

The Pittsfield Players' carolers led by Beth Champagne and accompanied by Nathan Smith on Ukulele made an appearance at the Pittsfield Chamber of Commerce Christmas Tree Lighting that was moved to December 4 because of inclement weather.

 

More than a dozen carolers sung their hearts out from 4 - 6 PM in frigid temperatures to give back to the town who gives so much to us. We truly hope it added to your celebration and you'll be sure to see us again next year!

 

(and yes, that was us that busted out Bohemian Rhapsody unexpectedly lead by Jeff Long)

SCENIC THEATER | BUILDING REPAIR UPDATE

December 2022

Bob Hetu and H & H Exteriors have finished the work on the fire damaged exterior of The Scenic Theatre. Upon completion of the project Bob sent this picture (last photo) of the last piece of siding that the same company had put up back in 1998. We're here to say that it pays to shop locally! This siding would not have needed replacing had there not been a fire next door.

 

(See the before and after shots)

We are so grateful that H&H Exteriors were able to squeeze us in before the first real snowfall!
