Youngsters from Scituate, Hanover, Hingham, Marshfield, and other South Shore towns will take to the stage this weekend for the first of two productions by South Shore Summer Theatre students.
“We’ll be ready,” said Director Maura Tighe, as she instructed youngsters during dress rehearsal of “The Stinky Cheese Man,” the non-profit group’s first of two shows during the next two weekends in Scituate.
“The Stinky Cheese Man,” features students age 7 to 13 in the musical version of the wacky and beloved children’s book that bends and twists favorite children’s tales. The show opens Friday night, July 24, at 7 p.m., and a second show will be held Saturday, July 25, at 2 p.m.
The second show, “Guys and Dolls,” opens next Friday at 7 p.m. and features the program's teens in a rendition of the popular musical that will be performed with a full orchestra. A matinee will be held Sunday, Aug., 2 at 2 p.m.
All shows will be held at Scituate High School. Tickets cost $15 for adults and $7 for children and can be bought at the door or at Front Street Book Shop in Scituate
