Coming Up, The Pittsfield Players Present

 

The Innocents!

 

William Archibald's Tony winning play “The Innocents", comes to the Scenic stage March 29th, 30th, 31st and April 5th and 6th.

Directed by Jeff Gregoire with Assistant Director Jared Griffin, Stage manager Ashley Pence, Set Foreman Vicki Watson, Meggin Dail Set decorator and Props extraordinaire, and many others already hard at work to bring this to the stage.

The Innocents is an adaptation of Henry James's classic novel "The Turn of the Screw”.

A new governess Miss Giddens (played by Emily Getchell-Lacey) is brought to Bly, a large country house in England, to care for two orphaned children, Master Miles (Radu Dragoiescu) and Miss Flora (Carly Griffin). Why do they need a new governess? What happened to the previous one? Mrs Grose the housekeeper (Beth Champagne) ‘knows the answers, but does she want to share that information? How much should she tell the new governess? Will it scare her away?

The children seem such a delight, carefree and charming. How far does that go? Are they really well behaved? What do they know? What have they seen? Who comes and visits them? Or are they really trying to communicate through the children?

Who are these two that appear out in the gardens and in the home? Has Miss Jessel the previous governess been visiting Flora?

What about Peter Quint, what happened to him? What has he been teaching and bringing out in Miles? Miss Giddens is trying to get to the bottom of this, or is this really her imagination filling in what she has been seeing and witnessing?

All these questions can be answered...... or some left up to your own imagination........ what you are really seeing and believing?

Come see “The lnnocents”. Decide for yourself. This is one to put the creep in your seat at the Scenic. Tickets are on sale now, so get your seats reserved early.

MAMA WON’T FLY! audition announcement

Marty Williams will be directing a hilarious comedy that opens this May. The name of the show is Mama Won't Fly. Written by the same authors as Dearly Beloved, Dixie Swim Club and many more great shows.

The Story: 

An outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother's wedding. Savannah's problem: Mama won't fly. With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama's vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced.

Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced that traveling together to her wedding is the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins and comedic chaos ensues. Every conceivable - and inconceivable - mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car and all of their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister.

As the misadventures multiply, the beleaguered trio rapidly develops the urge to ditch each other anywhere along the way. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the overwhelmed bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own relationship and welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family. This ferociously funny, family-friendly Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle!

Everyone is urged to put this one on your to do list and save the date!

Audition dates for Mama Won’t Fly are Sunday Mar 31 and Monday Apr 1, both at 7pm.

Tentative show dates are May 10, 11, 12, 17 and 18. For more information email Marty Williams at marty@pittsfieldplayers.com.
