Keuka players show 'How to Get to Sesame Street'

    HAMMONDSPORT—The Keuka Lake Players are performing an original production this weekend at Hammondsport Central School called “How to Get to Sesame Street.”
    The musical was written predominately by Michael Beers and arranged by Walker Kapral. Producer Patrick Curtis said “How to Get to Sesame Street” is a tribute to Jim Henson and the other people who created the children’s show. He explained that while none of the familiar characters from Sesame Street is in this production, they will perform many songs from Sesame Street and recreate how people felt when watching the show.
    Curtis added that between songs and dances, there will be monologues of quotes and wisdom from Henson and other people who made Sesame Street what it was. There will even be some audience participation.
    The idea for this musical came from the cast having fun with a Sesame Street song behind the scene of last year’s performance. Curtis said they joked it would be neat to a play based on the television program. The show started to become a reality when Rosemary Curtis’s brother in New York City, Beers, started to write the production. Patrick Curtis said the playwright got help from his 13-year-old nephew, Kapral, who wrote most of the music. Curtis added Beers worked with the Disney Corporation, which owns certain rights concerning the Muppets, about what could and could not be used.
    There are 34 members in the cast. Curtis said half of the actors are children, with the youngest being four years old.
    There will be four shows: Friday, July 29, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, July 30, at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, July 31, at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $10 for adults; each adult ticket also comes with one free ticket for a child, age three to 10. Additional children’s tickets cost $5.
