Scrooge: The Musical is a 1992 stage musical with book, music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse. Its score and book are closely adapted from the music and screenplay of the 1970 musical film Scrooge starring Albert Finney and A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Bricusse was nominated for an Academy Award for the song score he wrote for the film, and most of those songs were carried over to the musical. The show offers a wonderful, toe tapping score, a beautiful stage set, gorgeous costumes, and some very special stage effects that all add a fresh twist to this familiar Christmas tale.

The cast features Bill Schultz, who last year appeared as King Arthur in the Players’ production of Camelot, as Ebenezer Scrooge, and boasts a strong cast of both veteran Players and newcomers, including the following:

Pittsfield Players’ Kid’s Theater Workshop Auditions

The Pittsfield Players will hold auditions for their 2020 Kid’s Theater Workshop production of Getting to Know State Fair at The Scenic Theatre, 6 Depot St. in Pittsfield on Monday and Tuesday, December 16 and 17 at 4 pm both days. Those auditioning will be taught a song from the show and asked to sing in a group and, if they wish, as a solo. They’ll also learn a few simple dance steps and be asked to read from the script.

Set against the colorful backdrop of an American heartland tradition, STATE FAIR travels with the Frake family as they leave behind the routine of the farm for three days of adventure at the annual Iowa State Fair. Mom and Pop have their hearts set on blue ribbons while their daughter and son find romance and heartbreak on the midway. Set to the magical strains of an Academy Award-winning score and augmented by other titles from the Rodgers and Hammerstein songbook, STATE FAIR is the kind of warm-hearted family entertainment only Rodgers & Hammerstein could deliver! The show has 17 featured roles and many parts for the ensemble as a whole. There’s lots of singing and dancing, and tons of fun to be had in this year’s Kid’s Workshop. If you are interested in working behind the scenes on the show, please come to the auditions to sign up for tech crew.

The Kid’s Theater Workshop is a program by kids for kids ages 8 to 18, and participants not only perform on stage but also work behind the scenes, learning about set design and construction, set painting, stage managing, stage lighting and sound and costumes and make-up. The group rehearses two days a week after school and on Saturdays and then performs the show at two matinees for local schools and three evening shows for the general public. This year, the shows will be performed February 18 through 22, with a set strike and cast party on Sunday, February 23. For further information, contact director Maye Hart at maye@pittsfieldplayers.com.
