|A VERY BLUSTERY MORNING|
|STAGE NORTH THEATER IN WASHBURN|
We went to see “Annie” at Stage North in Washburn last night to celebrate Joan’s birthday. It was an amazingly good production, complete with pit orchestra. The children were particularly entertaining, and there were a number of quite good adult character actors and singers. Little Annie sang her heart out, and was always in key. Stage North is a small modern theater, with seating for about 150. It has a nice bar and lounge area. The tickets were inexpensive, as it is all or mostly volunteer community theater. Whatever might be lacking in professionalism is more than made up for by enthusiasm.
