BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) — Max Goldhirsch was a typical 11 year-old until he auditioned for a part in a show. He wowed the director and landed a part in the Second Generation Theatre Company production of "Nine", now playing at Shea's Smith Theatre.

Max says he had performed in school shows but this was his first professional role. About his fellow cast members who are all adults and mostly female he adds "I love working with these people because it makes me so excited about how theatre is supposed to be".

Kelly Copps, Second Generation's Artistic Director and a member of the cast says that Max's performance brings tears to the cast members eyes "he sounds like a little angel."

There are only five performances left. More information available at the Second Generation Theatre Company website.
