Weekend

Friday

Kidnapped! Mill City Productions will present the final weekend "The Ransom of Emily Jane" by Carolyn Lane, directed by Jackie DeGiorgis, a re-telling of O. Henry's "The Ransom of Red Chief," tonight at 7 p.m. In "The Ransom of Emily Jane," when the town gossips learn that rambunctious little Emily Jane Dorset has been kidnapped, they dutifully murmur, “Poor little tyke,” and then go on to rejoice in the unaccustomed peace and quiet her absence brings.  Meanwhile, the “poor little tyke” is having the time of her life terrorizing her mild-mannered, inexperienced kidnappers, whose ransom demands grow smaller and smaller as Emily Jane’s pranks grow wilder and wilder. Performances will be held at the Mill City Theatre in Building 4N (next to the Visitor's Center) of the Western Gateway Heritage State Park in North Adams. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students/seniors and are available at www.millcityproductions.org or at the door.
