Eight nights of “Annie” will light up Signal Mountain and our entire area as Nolan student Ellie Lydon, as the irresistible title character, plays opposite veteran actor Rob Inman, as Daddy Warbucks. Add other stage pros, such as Deb Meeks as Mrs. Hannigan, Tim Forsythe as Bert Healy, Shandra Burnett as Grace Farrell, and exciting newcomers, such as Micayla Rowan as Lily St. Regis and Andrew Sharps as Rooster Hannigan, to the slate, and the month of July will never be the same! More of your friends and neighbors will play supporting roles with gusto, as well.
In addition, Director Allan Ledford and his team of Jennifer Arbogast Wilson, musical director, Lindsay Fussell, choreographer (in her long awaited debut with the Playhouse), and Nick Hartline, playhouse orchestra conductor, have more than enough talent to take this show over the top! Songs such as “Tomorrow,” “It’s a Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “You’re Never Fully Dressed without a Smile,” and others will charge the midsummer air.
The dates are Friday and Saturday nights throughout July. That’s July 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, and 27. Curtain is at 8 p.m., but the box office opens at 6 p.m. for those who wish to get their tickets and place their lawn chairs early. Tickets are priced to please at $5 for children 12 and under, and $15 for those 13 and up. The Playhouse accepts cash or checks only, please.
The show will take place at the Playhouse Amphitheater, which is just up Rolling Way from the Police and Fire Departments on the James Boulevard corner. Parking is at the Town Center and nearby streets. Concessions, including pizza and nachos, and portable potties are available on the grounds.
The Playhouse is handicapped-friendly with ground-level seating and handicapped parking available on the grounds (to access this lot, remove the orange cones on Rolling Way, drive though and replace cones, and proceed up the driveway to the designated parking places). In addition, a handicapped-accessible portable potty is available,
