BLT’s Pajama Game is family fun

Published 11:21 am Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Bainbridge Little Theatre is continuing the run of its spring musical production, “The Pajama Game,” written by Richard Bissell, with music and lyrics by Jerry Ross and Richard Adler.

This family-friendly musical comedy pits big business interests against the workers who keep it afloat.

This light-hearted romp through 1955 is directed by Sam Higdon, who also assumes the male lead of Sid, plant superintendent.

Musical direction is by Michael Inlow and choreographer Susan Livingston-Higdon, who also plays the role of Gladys, secretary to the company president.

The cast includes many BLT veterans: Thaddeus Nifong, Amy Wells, Martha Mobley, Roger Porter, Rebekah Mann and some newer thespians: Brian Jacobik, Matthew Hoose and Jacob Jones.

The action takes place in the Sleep-Tite Pajama factory and involves the union demanding a 7-1/2 cent per-hour raise for the workers, which the company has denied.

Shop girls are Laura Cerone, Jenna Chambless, Chelsea Ferrell, Ally Hollingsworth, Emily Hiers, Brittany Morrow, Grace Nettles, Patrice Trower. Workers are Andrew Cooksey, Kevin Cox, Colin Hancock, Mike Love, Joshua Lynn and Kip Nussbaum.

The play continues this weekend with an 8 p.m. performance today and a Sunday matinee at 2:30. Additional performances will be presented March 12 -14 at 8 p.m., with a concluding matinee on Sunday, March 15 at 2:30.
