'Babes in Toyland' comes to Watkins

WATKINS GLEN—It is a show that is over 100 years old, but with appeal for the young and the young-at-heart alike; “Babes in Toyland.”
The Lake Country Players are performing the musical, Friday Nov. 13 to Sunday, Nov. 15 at the Watkins Glen High School. The Friday and Saturday showings start at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday showing is at 2:30 p.m. Tickets at the door cost $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens, and $6 for students. Children under four are free.
Michelle Benjamin, cast member of Lake Country Players, said the actors range in age from five years old to adults. She said the almost 40 cast members are from all over as well; Dundee, Penn Yan, Elmira and Horseheads.
The cast is made up Mother Goose characters. The show features David Scott as the evil Uncle Barnaby, Jason Finch as the Toymaker, Phil Kruk and Dale Jacobs as the inept Roderigo and Gonzorgo, Kim Jacobs as the Widow Piper and Tom Primerano as the bumbling Inspector Marmaduke. Also featured are Tyler Stevens as Tom-Tom, Erica Fiori as Contrary Mary, Anthony Curren as Alan, Sarah Schleuter-Eisman as Jane, Sam Capozzi as Grumio, Cara Bender as Jill and Melissa Norton as Hilda.
Some may remember the 1934 Laurel and Hardy version of “Babes in Toyland,” others the 1961 version with Annette Funicello and Ray Bolger, a 1986 movie with Drew Barrymore and Keanu Reeves, or a 1997 animated version with Christopher Plummer. Benjamin said the Lake Country Players’ version incorporates elements from each.
Tracy Gavich is directing, with Renee Riley as Music Director, Donna Christoffels as Accompanist, and Michelle L. Benjamin choreographing. For more information, call 607-535-8950 or 607-594-2074, or e-mail lakecountryplayers@gmail.com.
