A whistling revival

Heckert had never read the show before Burke gave him a copy. Once he did, like her, he was hooked. He's excited to share it with area audiences, something he's been doing for years, first with Schenectady Civic Players and Schenectady Light Opera before moving to Clifton Park eight years ago and joining Not So Common Players.

"Some people knit and crochet. I do theater," he said. He has a kindred spirit in Burke, who estimates she and her husband, who went to see "The Fantasticks" on their first date, take in about 50 shows a year. Not So Common Players shows offer other theater enthusiasts -- or even people just looking for something to do -- a rare chance to see a quality show for free, she said.

Showtimes are 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sundays and 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.""
