Dana Goolsby

PALESTINE- One of America's most beloved musicals, Annie, is back and giving a whole new generation the chance to experience this classic musical about never giving up hope. Palestine Community Theatre will stage this timeless tale of Little Orphan Annie, directed by Chaundra Dantin, at the Historic Texas Theatre for three weekends beginning July 19

Palestine Community Theatre will host its Opening Night Gala beginning at 6:30p.m. on Friday, July 19. The Opening Night reception is sponsored by Lott-Safford Wealth Management UBS Financial Services, Inc., with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and East Texas made wines from Sweet Dreams Winery. The curtain will open at 7:30p.m

In the depths of the 1930's, Annie, played by Hannah Weber, is a fiery young orphan girl who must live in a miserable orphanage run by the tyrannical Miss Hannigan, played by Sonia Martinez. Her seemingly hopeless situation changes dramatically when she is selected to spend a short time at the residence of the wealthy industrialist, Oliver Warbucks, played by Jim Vincill. Quickly, she charms the hearts of the household staff and even the seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks cannot help but learn to love this wonderful girl. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward if they would come to him and prove their identity. You will laugh, and you will cry!
