BCT presents “Annie”
Mark your calendars for the best family entertainment of
the year: Bangkok Community Theatre’s presentation of the hit family
musical “Annie”. Bangkok Community Theatre (BCT) will stage “Annie”
at the Bangkok Playhouse on Petchburi Road on March 28 & 29 at 7:30 p.m.
and March 29 and 30, 2003 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets at B550 for adults and B350
for students and children for all four performances will be available at CD
Warehouse in the Emporium on Sukhumvit Road from mid-March.
“Annie” has been described as the perfect family
musical. It first opened on Broadway in November 1977 and won 7 Tony Awards
including the award for Best Musical. A film of the musical was made in 1982
which was followed by a Disney remake in 1999. With wonderfully uplifting
songs and dances, this is a true “feel good” show. In the words of
“Annie’s” creator: “Those who come to see the show go away with a
sense of optimism, a sense of hope and joy and love. I think that is why it
is a success.” That kind of optimism from a little orphan girl as she hugs
her dog and tells us “The sun will come out tomorrow” is just the kind
of uplifting entertainment families need this Spring. This local production
boasts 48 adult performers, 10 kids and a dog! Don’t miss it! (For more
information please visit the BCT website at www.bct-th.org) Proceeds to
benefit Thai Children’s Charities!
“Annie” will be made possible through the generous
support of sponsors: NEWCITY (Bangkok) PCL, International School Bangkok
(ISB), Kleenex by Kimberly-Clark, Bangkok Hospital, Toblerone, MBMG
International, The Little Gym, Kesinee International School, Raja’s
Fashions, Transpo International, Covermark and CD Warehouse.
