‘2 Pianos 4 Hands’ on Players’ stage
The Peterborough Players continues its 80th birthday season by bringing Ted Dykstra and Richard Greenblatt’s “2 Pianos 4 Hands” back to the stage.
This play with music, an audience favorite from 2010 that topped the list of most-requested revivals, will return to the Players’ stage Wednesday through July 21.
Tom Frey and Jeffery Rockwell return to portray a broad range of characters, performing a wide range of musical styles in a show of piano-playing prowess.
“2 Pianos 4 Hands” is a tale of two Canadian boys who share the same goal of concert pianist stardom. They work fervently toward their dream amidst pushy parents, eccentric teachers, hours of repetitive practice, stage fright, the agony of competitions, and the dream of greatness.
Playwright Dykstra says the play is “about coming to terms with the dreams you had at one time and realizing the gold-platter scenario may not happen — but you’re still you.”
The show, rated PG-13, opens July 10 at 8 p.m., with performances Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m., Tuesdays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. through July 21.
Reserved seating is $37 and $39 on Saturdays. Tickets can be reserved by calling 924-7585 or online at www.PeterboroughPlayers.org.
