Kids’ Theater Workshop To Present Bugsy Malone, Jr.

Pittsfield Bugsy_&_Blousy_2.jpg

Caleb Molloy appears as Bugsy Malone with Chloe Rattee as Blousey Brown in The Pittsfield Players’ Kids’ Theater Workshop presentation of Bugsy Malone, Jr.


The Pittsfield Players’ Kids’ Theater Workshop is once again in rehearsal for this year’s presentation of Bugsy Malone, Jr., a riotous romp back to the gangster days of the 1930’s, complete with zoot suits, fedora hats, flapper dresses, and some really odd weapons, such as cream pies and “splurgers” that shoot shaving cream. This year, director Maye Hart has over 45 kids, ages 8 to 18, in the workshop, and they’re all working hard to bring this wonderful production to the Scenic stage.


Bugsy Malone, Jr. will run at the Scenic Theater on February 19 and 20 in matinee performances for local schools and home school groups, and tickets for those two shows must be reserved in advance by calling 736-9563. The show will also be performed for the general public on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, February 21, 22, and 23 at 7:30 pm each night. Tickets, which will go on sale this week, are $10 for adults and $8 for kids under the age of 13. You can reserve tickets by calling the theater at 435-8852.


The Kids’ Theater Workshop is a program that brings kids into the total experience of theater arts. They not only act and sing on stage, but they also handle the set painting, stage management, lighting and sound for the show. The production is then performed before other kids from area schools, as well as for the general public.


Mark your calendars now and call for reservations for Bugsy Malone, Jr.

Barbershoppers Announce Singing Valentines


The Concord Coachmen Barbershop Chorus announces booking opportunities for the 2013 “Singing Valentines” program. Several quartets, members of the Concord Coachmen, have been perfecting their harmony skills to deliver this ever popular Valentine’s Day surprise.


This year, quartets will travel throughout the Concord and Manchester area, pouring out sweet, tender love songs in close harmony. The unforgettable memory needs to be booked ahead by the donor, and will be delivered this year on Thursday, February 14th, Valentines Day!  Although deliveries are often made to sweethearts at work, home or in local restaurants, families also enjoy surprising mothers or favorite relatives particularly those alone or in nursing homes. The popularity of the unique presentation makes it prudent to book early.


Singing Valentines Chairman Lannie Wood anticipates another successful year of “Pleasing Sweethearts.” 


“Imagine,” Wood states, “from out of the blue, four men dressed in suits, bearing a beautiful rose appear at your sweetheart’s home or workplace for this great Valentine gift!


Anyone wishing to book a quartet to sing to your Valentine or require more information should call: (603) 608-9768 Concord or 483-8295 Manchester.

Well, we had a short meeting this past week at TOPS due to the fog and ice weather. Congrats to Suzie and Fern for having a tie for best loser. Kudos to the rest who had a weight loss!  


We should be starting a new contest next week because we tend to get into a rut this time of the year. It’s cold outside to try to get a walk in and we are just tired and are waiting for some sunshine; even a few minutes of sun a day just to get that Vitamin D and rejuvenate our bodies with warmth. I, for one, love to have the sun beat on me in my car. It makes me think that warmer days are on the way. 


The month of February is one of my favorite months. The days are getting longer and the sun is warmer and it’s a short month closer to spring. But we all know what that means, less clothes... Oh my. 


If anyone is interested in losing a few pounds before the spring temps get here or if you would like to get out and meet some new people, come on out on a Tuesday night. We meet at the St. Stephen’s Church on Main Street in Pittsfield at 5:30 for weigh in and 6:30 for our meeting. Call Laurel Tiede at 269-8721 or Pat Smith at 435-5333. They would love to answer any questions you might have. 


“To create more positive results in your life, replace ‘if only’ with ‘next time’.” 


Hope to see you all lighter next week! Have a good week and stay on track!




I Came; I Saw And I Fell In Love!


Hi, My name is Albert Douglas and I am a candidate for Selectmen for the Town of Pittsfield, New Hampshire. For those of you who do not know me, let me tell you a little bit about myself and why I came to live in Pittsfield. I started coming to Pittsfield in 2002 because a member of my family was living here and they loved the town. During those years, I met some real good people and in 2010 I fell in love and in July of 2011 married a wonderful woman, Bea, who was born and raised here. We reside at 36 Cameron Drive. Since living in Pittsfield, I have become a member of the Website Committee, Cable Advisory Committee, Park and Rec. Commission, the Pittsfield Rotary and I am treasurer for the First Congregational Church. My hobbies are golf and I am an NCAA college and high school softball umpire.


My campaign will require a strong and organized grassroots organization. I have prepared myself for this endeavor and realize it will not be easy, but I know my passion and motivation will overcome the difficulties. I will be the first to say I cannot do it all alone. That is why I am turning to the people who know me best and inviting them to get involved in my campaign and help me make a difference.


This is a great challenge I am taking on, but I am prepared; ready and willing to do what it takes to make the best decisions and positive resolve for the town in which I love. If you are interested in helping me and/or if you would like to talk to me, please feel free to do so. You can contact me at (603) 435-6314 or by email at [email protected].
