Welcome 2018   Leave a comment

In the past  I often forgot to post reviews  right away because  I  have too much other stuff going on.   To eliminate that problem what  I have decided to  do is  multiple reviews in the same post.

To start off 2018   Matt and  I saw   two shows at  Peacock Players, 2 at the Majestic Theatre and today we  saw  the Dance Show at the Amato center.

The weekend of January 12 and 13th  we saw the Technical  Difficulties   Improv Show and  the Spotlight  Musical Theatre Performance  at Peacock Players.     We  enjoyed both performances  immensely.  Our favorite songs in the Spotlight Musical Theatre performance  were I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out  Of My Hair from South Pacific,  Move On from Sunday In The Park  With George,  Matchmaker  Matchmaker  from Fiddler On The Roof, Ten  Minutes Ago from   Rogers and Hammerstien’s Cinderella, Sue  Me and Marry The Man Today from   Guys and Dolls and No One Is Alone from  Into The Woods. Congrats to everyone in  Technical  Difficulties  and Spotlight  Musical Theatre  Troupe  for awesome performances.

This year  for a  bit  of variety in our viewing schedule we got  season  passes to the  Majestic Theatre which started off with two  Dinner Theatre performances  called  Elvis   Has Left The Building  and  Are We There Yet?   Both of these performances took place at  Executive Court  Banquet Hall in Manchester which was an intimate setting with delicious food and a great atmosphere.   Elvis Has  Left  The Building  is  a  comedy  and the basic story  is that Elvis Presley   disappears and his manager   gets  two people to  replace him. This   cast consisted of  Allan  McPherson, Daniel Scheyes, Jonathan Kaplan  (who  aside from  performances at the Majestic  has also been  on All  My Children if there are any soap opera  fans  who read  this blog)Liz Ronai Fontanella and Sierra   Jones.     Are  We There Yet?  is a musical comedy that is very similar in style to  I Love You, You’re Perfect  Now Change  but instead of focusing on  romantic  relationships it focusses on family dynamics.  This  cast  consisted of  Aly Holmes, Bruce Williams, Catherine  Denehy  and  Sam Pazinci.   Favorite  musical  numbers included  Baby Rap,  Batting Zero, Cause  I’m The Mommy, Cha  Ching, Your  Parents  Push Your Buttons, I Deserve  It, I  Know She’s  Out There   and  Enjoy The Ride.

Elvis Has  Left The Building  was performed January 19-21st and  Are We There Yet was performed  February 2nd-4th.

 

I love the tradition   at the Amato Center  every winter that they do  an all dance production.   It adds great variety to Riverbend Youth Company’s season.    It initially started off as someone’s senior project…  I can’t remember whose senior project it was  though.    This year’s theme for the dance show was Off The Page  and the dances were inspired by  books which I thought was a very  cool theme.. and now  I want  read to read some of the books that  the  dances were based on. Favorite numbers included  Where The Wild Things Are,   Strange     Case  Of  Dr. Jekyll and Mr.  Hyde,  Harry  Potter, Winnie The Pooh, If I Stay, Perks of Being A Wall Flower and   The Outsiders.

Off The Page  was  directed by  Meg  King and choreographed  by   Meg  King,  Madison Calabria and  Nicole  Jutras.       It was performed at the Amato Center  February 2nd-4th.  Congratulations to all  involved  on a fabulous show.

 

 

My  next will include reviews of the following shows:

  •  Complete Works  Of William Shakespere  Abridged  Peacock Players
  • Peter Pan  Junior  Riverbend Youth Company
  • SHS  Pops Concert
