PITTSFIELD — Maine Central Institute spring musical revue production, “When I Grow Up, A Cabaret for Cancer” will be presented at 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Pittsfield Community Theatre on Main Street.

“When I Grow Up, A Cabaret for Cancer” was created by MCI students and includes songs from a variety of current and classic Broadway musicals. The show is choreographed by Mollie Sharples as part of her senior project at MCI and features a cast of nine talented students. Rachel Damon is the MCI Drama program director.

MCI’s school theme for 2012-2013 is “kindness.” As a result the students in Drama Club decided they wanted to make the spring production a fundraiser for organizations that help families affected by children’s cancer. All proceeds from this production will be split between Pittsfield’s “Keepin’ On Foundation,” and Camp Sunshine in Saco. Camp Sunshine has a grant that will match any donations raised as part of this event.

This fundraising effort is completely student driven and an additional group of students lead by sophomores Trinity Bachrach and Lexi LaMarre are coordinating an auction which will take place at intermission to raise additional funds. For more information about the auction or to donate items, contact them at cabaretforcan [email protected] Students have made a promotional video about the production that can be found at http://tinyurl.com/ cabaret4cancer. Tickets for “When I Grow Up, A Cabaret for Cancer” are $5 and are available from members of MCI Drama and at the door. The production runs approximately one hour and 45 minutes.
