The stage will come alive with a cast of 50 as Blue Jay Stage Company presents the beloved musical “Annie” at the Needville High School auditorium.
Performances take place at: 7 p.m. Friday, Dec.3; 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4; and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5.
“Come experience the classic story of little orphan Annie, live on stage, complete with her dog, Sandy,” said Director Curtis Barber. “There are two casts that will be alternating performances, so come to the show twice.”
Cameron Knezek portrays the title character, with John Michael Sloan as billionaire Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, who adopts her. While “Sandy” is a shoe-in to capture the hearts of every member of the audience, Principal Steve Adamson is sure to make a splash with his acting debut as President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
“Annie” is based on Harold Gray’s comic strip, “Little Orphan Annie,” which debuted in the New York Daily News in the 1920s and quickly became a national favorite. Advance tickets are $8 for general admission and $14 for premium reserve seats. General admission tickets will be $10 at the door.
All reserve tickets must be purchased in advance and are only available online at www.showtix4u.com/events/BluejayStageCompany. General admission tickets may be purchased online, in the front office at any Needville ISD campus, and during lunch periods at the high school.
All proceeds from the musical will be used for theatre department events and to fund the cost of upcoming productions Email Barber at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
